Whirlwind Week for Shepard Fairey
Photo: AP (I don't wanna get sued...)
Let's just say this...Shepard Fairey's trip to Boston probably didn't go as expected. First there was the accusations of plagiarism, then the AP filing a copyright infringement lawsuit for his "Hope" poster depicting Barack Obama...and now he's been arrested on graffiti charges. I'd say that's one heck of a week for the Obey Giant creator.
I'm sure mostly everyone has an opinion on this recent PR campaign from the "controversial" street artist. So I'd love to hear from you all...what do you think? Was this graffiti arrest a way to say "Hey! I'm not mainstream!"
