Shhh! Shepard Fairey Is on Probation, But Still Made It Down to Art Basel 2012


Shhh! Shepard Fairey is on probation. The LA-based street artist has been arrested some sixteen times in his life, but still made it down to Miami for his sixth Art Basel. The name behind the Andre the Giant OBEY posters was down in Miami this week to put up two giant installations — a 14x85ft mural and a 25x100ft visual collaboration with fellow LA area artist RISK. Fairey caught up with VIBE before his DJ set at Bardot Miami to tell us about all his other recent projects.
