ABOUT THE ART
"I’ve been using Montana spray paint for many years because it gives the best performance and durability of all the paint brands that I’ve tried out. When I was younger, and I was doing things very spontaneously, I wasn’t thinking about longevity, but even for an ephemeral art form like street art or graffiti, I think we all want paint to stand the test of time as much as possible. Creating and releasing these cans with Montana, which showcase my art using the paint that I use for my fine art in the studio and the murals that I make, it’s a logical and awesome collaboration. Thanks for giving me a little bit of love and another canvas for me to work on. It’s very meta – the can that makes the art, that ends up on the can." – Shepard
Frank Shepard Fairey (born February 15, 1970) is an American contemporary graphic designer, and illustrator who emerged from the skateboarding scene. He first became known for his "Andre the Giant Has a Posse" (…OBEY…) sticker campaign, in which he appropriated images from the comedic supermarket tabloid Weekly World News. His work became more widely known in the 2008 U.S. presidential election, specifically his Barack Obama "Hope" poster.
The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston calls him one of today's best known and most influential street artists. His work is included in the collections at The Smithsonian, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
