Hear from the street culture master at Vivid Ideas
US artist Shepard Fairey is the man behind the Barack Obama HOPE posters, the ‘We The People’ initiative and the OBEY GIANT art project. He was the first Game Changer announced for this year’s Vivid Ideas festival and while he’s in Sydney he’ll be working on a huge public mural at 309 George Street (June 12-17).
Shepard is coming back to Australia for the first time in 14 years and his talk at Sydney Town Hall will cover his tendency to blurs the boundaries of art and design. Shepard will share his processes, as well as talk about the 70-plus large-scale public murals he’s created around the world.
Before and after his time in Sydney there’ll be a public exhibition of his music-themed works at Darling Quarter. See the Dates and Times tab for more information about all three.
