The godfather of urban art, Shepard Fairey aka Obey

I stumbled across this poster whilst out and about with my camera. At the time of taking this photo I had no idea what I was looking at until a friend of mine introduced me to the works of Shephard Fairey aka Obey. I've decided to post some examples of his work, this particular posting is one of his signature pieces entitled 'Obey Giant', it is of french wrestler André the Giant.

He inspired Bansky, is in demand for major marketing campaigns, but still loves the adrenaline rush of a 'bombing mission'.
