Shepard Fairey at the Australian National Portrait Gallery

Posted in Uncategorized by brynzo on September 21, 2009


When you think you of the National Portrait Gallery you might imagine dusty portairts of old parlimentaty figures and long forgotten sporting heros. Things seem to be changing.

From 18 September the NPG will be exhibiting a collection Shepard Fairey’s poster art portraits.

Shepard Fairey is best known for his iconic poster Obama/Hope which he made in support of Barack Obama for the 2008 US election. Fairey was already known for his independent politics and his striking street posters and sticker campaigns that took his images to the street.

Check it out at the National Portrait Gallery, King Edward Terrace, Canberra, A.C.T. My dad curated the show.
