Shepard Fairey – MAYDAY

Posted in Artwork, Print with tags , , , , , , , , on April 26, 2010 by bendey14

Looks like Shepard Fairey is up to his old tricks again.  And when I say “tricks,” I mean pure artistical brilliance.

The MAYDAY exhibit will run from May 1st to May 29th at Deitch Projects in New York and will consist of a rather large collection of new artwork.  Here’s an excerpt from Shepard Fairey originally posted at World Famous Design Junkies: “These people I’m portraying were all revolutionary, in one sense or another. They started out on the margins of culture and ended up changing the mainstream. When we celebrate big steps that were made in the past, it reminds us that big steps can be made in the future.”

Here’s a sneak peak:

Get Your Hands Dirty

The appropriately titled, “Dirt Poster,” is a recent project by New York designer, Roland Reiner Tiangco.  While removing the poster from it’s envelope, your hands become dirty.  And what do you do with dirty hands?  Well you smear them all over anything and everything you can find, duh.  The backside reveals the message…and I couldn’t agree with it more.

A World Full Of Munny

You can never be too old for toys, especially if you’ve got the creative itch and a little depth to your imagination.  The Kidrobot “Munnyworld” exhibit put on at the Eloquent Delinquents Gallery in downtown New York this past week showcased some amazing “toys” designed by artists from all over the world.  The exhibit was based around the popular figures called “Munny’s” released by Kidrobot, which also produces similar figures and carries a striking clothing line .  The figures are purchased blank and encourage owners to customize them in any way possible.  A Munny, which has become quite the collector’s item,  can be bought by anyone, but the best of the best have ended up here in New York.  Here is an article detailing the show and a collection  of pictures.  Check the link for more.
