Shepard Fairey

Last week we popped along to the StolenSpace gallery and had a nosey at Shepard Fairey's latest exhibition, Sound & Vision. Fairey is the artist behind OBEY as well as the guy who designed the famous Barack Obama 'Hope' poster. We'd seen his previous exhibition at StolenSpace back in 2007 and were impressed by the scale and detail of his works. The current exhibition is pretty huge, taking over two spaces in the Trumans Brewery complex, as well as another space for a pop-up shop selling his increasingly popular clothing range. I've picked my favourite bits to show here, if I'm honest I think there was perhaps a bit too much on show and I wasn't keen on everything I saw, some seemed a bit too much of the same, but I guess that's the nature of his art.

Pop in if your passing, it's on till Sunday.
