Dumbo Walls: Shepard Fairey

Shepard Fairey’s Lotus Woman mural encapsulates a number of recurring concerns in the artist’s work, including propaganda, portraiture, and political power. A major artist of the street art movement, Fairey rose to prominence in the early 1990s through the dispersion of posters, stickers, and murals.
