Shepard @ ICA


Shepard Fairey, the Los Angeles-based street artist behind the red, white, and blue Obama campaign image that swept the globe-is the subject of an exciting new exhibition organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art of Boston. Tuesday night, the private opening reception for the first solo show of the artist’s work, was packed with close family, friends and fellow artists of Fairey. Sponsored by Levi’s, the customized jean that was a 2002 collaboration with the artist for the show Authentik, which he curated, was on proud display. In complement to the exhibition, Fairey will be creating public art works at sites around Boston. Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand opens February 6 and runs through August 2009.
