Good evening El Moochadores! This week has been kind of brutal for Chudd and myself, but we’re both feeling better now and we should be back on track with some new reviews, articles, and even a new Moocast, but until then:
Check out this very cool short documentary about Shepard Fairey by film maker Brett Novak. In this 12 minute doc Fairey discusses his success as an artist and symbolism behind his work. Here’s the synopsis:
Several months ago I was commissioned by the Halsey Institute out of Charleston, South Carolina to shoot a short film on the infamous street artist behind OBEY: Shepard Fairey. I definitely knew Shepard’s work, whether it be that repetitive face of Andre the Giant popping up at every street corner I’ve ever been on, or as the Obama Poster that definitely did more for an election than just add aesthetic to it – but I was not aware at how incredibly inspiring Shepard would turn out to be. For a new understanding of how this skateboarder turned mega famed street star turned out to be, check this film out.
Okay, I’m still brutally ill and very much want to go back to bed, so check out the documentary!
