Shepard Fairey Is All Over My (Internet) TV

What do you need cable for anymore when you can get programs about stuff you want to see so easily on the internet? Sports. That’s what. (I was just looking to see if the Superbowl is being streamed this year, but couldn’t find any reliable results.)

Also, you know what? I don’t care that the Shepard Fairey backlash is in full swing, I’m still going to the Supply & Demand show at the ICA, and you should to. Let me know how much of a hack or farce or fake or fraud or rip off he is in the comments, I’ll be at the museum.

  1. remember says:

    You’re wasted your time if you want to see Fairey’s work
    This guy Fairey has made a career out of lifting images that don’t belong to him then passing them off as his own. As an artist myself this is the lowest thing you can do. He doesn’t deserve any support as an artist. You people that believe he doesn’t do this are gravely misinformed and need to do your homework before you embrace your poster boy. Now I see the Obama picture was lifted as well!

  2. Remember,

    I disagree.

    It’s not the lowest. The lowest to me is people who think they have any right to determine what “art” is. Art is in the eye of the beholder. One man’s single dot on a page is another’s 1 million dollar masterpiece.

    Fairey has been doing what he does looooong before the Obama print and he’s never been one to hide his intention or practices.

    If you take your argument to the logical conclusion I’m assuming you dislike most modern American art from the likes of Warhol, Johns, Lichtenstein, and Koons. All these artists are famous for, as you say, “lifting images”.

    Again to me it’s less about what it is and more about what it makes you feel.
