Shepard Fairey is the most influential artist in the world and this text is a critical examination of his art and life. By digging into to the many layers of being an anti-modern artist, much can be learned about the current state of the art world and those that are influenced by the artist. Fairey has challenged conventions, formulas, and traditional borders with much fanfare and criticism. Through the life and art of Fairey, we see paradigms broken and an artist working within an ever-growing platform for making meaningful art.
