Shepard Fairey & Blek Le Rat Show Opens Tomorrow
"The exhibition will showcase the kind of work the west coast is famous for," the gallery says in a press release for the event. "The lowbrow -- with its influences of pop art, street art, outsider art, punk rock, comic books, the surfboard, skateboard, and hot rod subcultures."
It will be interesting & possibly inspiring to see Shepard's visually striking graphic style up close and personal (main piece above) as well as the somewhat under-appreciated Blek Le Rat.
Shepard Fairey, for all of you who have been living in a box for the past 5 years, is the artist behind the ubiquitous HOPE poster & other inspiring imagery such as the Black Eyed Peas 'Elephunk' album cover.
