Coming out of punk, skate, and street culture, Shepard Fairey’s graphic design has become synonymous with the art of protest in the 21st century. From André the Giant stickers to the OBEY fashion empire, Facing the Giant presents Fairey’s work from the last 30 years featuring key works that highlight messages of empowerment.
*This exhibition was organized by the Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, CA, in association with OBEY GIANT ART.
