Shepard Fairey: Soap Opera Set Decorator

09.14.11 Marina Galperina

Shepard Fairey’s art makes an appearance on The Young and the Restless as a coveted piece of office accessorizing because it’s worth a lot of money, ooh la la. For those allergic to soap, here’s a transcript.

“…Going right behind my desk. It’s my first art purchase!”
“You’ve bought art before.”
“I know but this is not a print. It’s an original… I know, right?”
“I’m so happy for you!”
Huggyhuggy kissykissy.
“All your hard work is finally paying off.”
“Thank you.”
Enter father-suit character.
“Did you see this?”
“I see this. That is…”
“The first piece in your son’s art collection!”
“That’s a… Shepard Fairey original, isn’t it? The price tag for one of these is usually in the thousands. Don’t you think you’re getting a little bit ahead of yourself?”

Yeah, hot shot, maybe you should have picked yourself up a bargain Obey™ pillow instead.
