Fairey graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 1992 with a B.A. in illustration. He is most recognized as emerging from the skateboarding scene and became most notably known for his "Andre the Giant Has a Posse" sticker campaign and "OBEY" street art movement. Since 1989, Shepard has consistently produced a wide range of artwork from screenprints, mix media stencil collage, to 15 foot mural installations. In 2007, Shepard embarked on a pivotal year with producing 3 major solo exhibitions in New York City, London, and Los Angeles. All 3 exhibitions sold out with a showing of over a 100 pieces of art in each exhibition. In 2008, Fairey created a series of posters supporting Barack Obama's candidacy for President in which led a massive grassroots street awareness campaign. Fairey's "PROGRESS", "HOPE", and "CHANGE" posters created a huge impact in the visibility of the Obama Campaign, in which now President Obama, himself, personally thanked Fairey for making this art. Since then he created an exclusive design for Rock the Vote, and sits on the advisory board of Reaching to Embrace the Arts, a not-for-profit organization that provides art supplies to disadvantaged schools and students. Shepard Fairey currently resides in Los Angeles, California. Fairey's incredible talent has positioned him among the most coveted artists in the nation-bid now!
