Posted on Sunday, March 12th, 2006 under Design Reviews | No comments

Frank Shepard Fairey (Shep-Ard Fair-ee)
Born: February 15, 1970 in Charleston, South Carolina

Wikipedia says, "Fairey is a contemporary graphic designer. He is most noted for being the artist who, while attending the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 1990, created the 'André the Giant Has a Posse' sticker campaign, which has evolved into the 'Obey Giant' campaign, and can now be seen all over the world. Fairey frequently uses wheatpaste to affix large posters to billboards.

Fairey graduated from Porter-Gaud School in 1988. He graduated from RISD in 1992 with a Bachelor of Arts in Illustration, and currently resides in Los Angeles, California."
