Shepard Fairey’s Sound and Vision show has been the hot topic in town for the last few weeks. The artist and his crew has hit hard for this show since not only the Stolen Space gallery is hosting the show but another much bigger one a few yards away has also been necessary to give a roof to the impressive amount of pieces the artist has produced.
Since the Hope portrait of Obama back in 2008, Shepard Fairey and his brand OBEY has become something people recognize and like. You see a Shepard Fairey and you know it is one – the typography, colors and subject will give it away. OBEY is a brand here to stay.
Banksy has finally dropped again in London and this time, he has put a strong emphasis on different signs of pop culture which suits so well street art and especially stencils.
Some says that that one of his new work is a clear reference to The Clash London Calling album cover, another one refers to Futuramaâ€™s Bender and in the last one, Keith Harringâ’s Dog can be clearly recognized.
Locations of these new works:
The Clash London Calling album cover – Thomas More Square (E1)
Futurama’s Bender – Not know (yet)
Keith Harring’s dog – located on Grange Road (SE1)
On another note, ART-PIE has learnt that Banksy story boarded and directed the opening of the latest Simpsons episode. View it below.
