Infamous street artist Shepard Fairey exemplifies the ‘hard-worker’ in this video. In preparation for his upcoming exhibition at Pace Prints, Fairey does double duty and attends both the Pace Paper studio in New York and the Watanabe Press in Brooklyn in order to create for the show.
In this video short below, he shares some of his inspiration behind the art direction with regard to its evolution from pop art to street art, by means of a central theme of power. He also talks about the specific printmaking process used to capture his message in each unique print. Fairey’s exhibition is called “Harmony & Discord,” and it opens on May 5 at Pace Prints in New York. You can gather more information about the showing here.
