Biography  
Shepard Fairey


Born Frank Shepard Fairey and known professionally as Shepard Fairey, he began his career after training at the Rhode Island School of Design, as a graphics artist, creating with his business, Alternate Graphics, stickers, skateboards and posters that he advertised through mailing catalogs.  In 1994, a documentary film, Andre the Giant Has a Posse, featured Fairey "and the growing phenomenon of his subversive stickers and posters."  This brought him much attention, and his business, based in his hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, grew.  Among his new products was a skateboard video, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), that featured skateboarders, many of them friends from his own skateboarding days.  Displaying 750 of 1449 characters.
