Deitch Project's Shepard Fairey Exhibit

Thursday after work I stopped by the Deitch Project gallery to see the Shepard Fairey exhibit. Shepard Fairey is a contemporary "street" artist that is most famous for his prints. His most famous piece is the Obama "Hope" poster used during the 2008 Presidential election.

I was really happy I walked over to the exhibit, his use of screen prints and news paper scraps made the art have a lot of depth. His images were mostly political and pop-culture pieces.

Here are some pictures I took while I was there....
