Shepard Fairey (OBEY)

Sedation Pill

1970, USA. Lives in California.
Painter. Using graffiti techniques mixed with art concepts and graphic design elements, Fairey has been feeding the frenzied masses with a steady diet of 'Andre the Giant has a Posse'. What began as a group of printed stickers has erupted into a growing cult following with professional wrestler Andre the Giant’s head as the deity. Fairey became fascinated by the power of the streamlined graphic approach of Russian Constructivist posters and wanted an icon that would integrate this style. He has exhibited at the Holly Solomon Gallery and the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York City and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, as well as other venues worldwide.
