In this video, Shepard Fairey talks about the influence graffiti, skateboarding and punk rock had on his life and the ways it shaped his art career. Key moments such as a school trip to NY and the melding of styles by brands such as Shut Skateboards allowed him to develop his techniques.
‘Obey Clothing and Greg Roman made this video, which was shot right before MoCA’s “Art In The Streets” show opened. It talks about my roots as an artist and has footage proving I could once hold my own on a mini-ramp’ – Shepard Fairey
