This huge mural by world renowned street artist Shepard Fairey stands at 44 metres tall and 22 metres across. As of June 2017 this was the biggest mural the artist has ever created.
“The idea of consciously obeying versus subconsciously conforming has been something that’s important to me,”
Shepard Fairey is the man behind the OBEY Clothing line and the Barack Obama HOPE poster. His work is more often that not politically driven so to see something in this style is very different for the artist.
“I’m now addressing what I think is a full spectrum, from angry and provocative to gentle and more diplomatic. It’s much easier to get approval for public works that are not controversial."
