Gingko Press. Shepard Fairey


Off The Shelf

Shepard Fairey



Mr Fairey's new book called "Mayday".
It looks at his career, from skate/punk rock to slappin stuff up on the street.
A great insight into the genius of advertising imagery.

With energy and urgency befitting the title MAYDAY, Shepard Fairey captures the radical spirit of his subjects, using portraiture to celebrate the artists, musicians and political activists he most admires.

Says Fairey, “These people I’m portraying were all revolutionary, in one sense or another. They started out on the margins of culture and ended up changing the mainstream. When we celebrate big steps that were made in the past, it reminds us that big steps can be made in the past, it reminds us that big steps can be made in the future.”
