Shepard Fairey on Colbert

Local artist turned ZOMG! political art superstar for his Obama HOPE poster, Shepard Fairey, was on The Colbert Report last night. A few people have mentioned to me that they missed it so I thought I’d just post the clip here for the enjoyment of all:

(full disclosure: Shepard is a long time friend who I’ve worked on many projects with and I generally think he rocks.)

  1. You know, that guy just kicks hella mad ass. I’ve seen people dog on him for years for “selling out,” and early on I was even skeptical; but I’ve come to see that what he is is actually a SUCCESSFUL, PROLIFIC ARTIST that the public can relate to: something we’re so unused to seeing in this day and age that we end up slinging arrows instead of thinking about the content of the art. Props to Shep. He deserves it.
