Shepard Fairey, Bowery, New York, October 2018

1385. Bowery, New York (2)

Very close to where we were staying in New York was this large and imposing piece by the fabulous Shepard Fairey. The style is austere and seems to bear a resemblance to totalitarian state propaganda branding or dystopian future movie motifs such as in ‘the hunger games. The sentiment though is for the people.

I rather like this highly designed corporate look, and it certainly is a striking piece that yells out at passers by.
