that banksy kid
Shephard Fairey is not the first name that comes to mind when I think of street art. The individual responsible for Exit Through The Gift Shop, and internationally famous for his ambiguity but consistent work in response to social matters is the one and only Banksy. I will, however, accredit the phenomenon to Shephard. The greatest thing Banksy brings to the table is moving his work to the interiors of buildings as well. He actually took his appropriation of Mona Lisa and put it in the Louvre itself. That takes.... courage to put it nicely. Here are a few of my favorites of his.
