From his first print to 10-story murals, Shepard Fairey has personally driven his growth and evolution as an artist over the past two decades. To create our latest Hennessy V.S Limited Edition Bottle, Shepard applied the same tenacity and passion for experimentation and perfection that pushes him to Never stop. Never settle.
Recently Shepard headed out to New York City to take part in the Jonathan Levine Gallery sponsored event 10 Years of Wooster Collective: 2003-2013, a group exhibition featuring over 50 local and international street artists. The temporary space located in the Chelsea district was curated by Marc and Sara Schiller, and featured works highlighting the ephemeral art scene ever-present in the five boroughs of New York. For the fully packed exhibition, Shepard prepared three classic 3-face series works in a variety of colors, featuring more than five layers of abstract texturing on each piece. Throughout the night, numerous legendary street artists were seen walking around signing autographs and taking photos with admiring fans and fellow artists alike. Additionally, Shepard painted a peace and justice themed mural in Dumbo (District Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass).
Wooster Collective was founded in 2001 with a genuine desire to share images of the city being transformed by street art with the rest of the world.
The “Art in Motion” Shepard Fairey film was captured over the course of two days during the 2013 SXSW film and music festival. After a series of collaborations between Shepard and Sage, the symmetry in this particular mural was the main inspiration for creating a motion based narrative bespoken to tell the story of the art itself. The concept was to capture a mural Shepard created and reincarnate it into a standalone piece of moving art. The creators of the film wanted to emphasize the intricate process of creation while maintaining the visual aesthetic of the art itself. The piece was photographed and directed by Sage Seb, edited by Tanner Shay and produced by Arron Nelson Jr.
