Shepard Fairey Murals

Shepard Fairey is a renowned and respected street artist and graphic designer who got his start through skateboard designs. He is best known for his Andre The Giant “OBEY” art as well as his Barack Obama “HOPE” poster. His designs are not only found on the street but in advertisements, political campaigns, and album covers as well. Fairey is an artist, activist, and a DJ as well.

In 2010, the Contemporary Arts Center hosted the Shepard Fairey exhibition, Supply & Demand. To mark the occasion, Fairey and his team placed murals and painted images from Shepard Fairey’s popular work through-out Cincinnati. His work can be found in various neighborhoods around the city and in Northern Kentucky. While some of the art is painted on walls and billboards, a majority of the work is temporary but a lot of them can still be found around the city.
