Quote of Note | Shepard Fairey


“I think that initially, I wasn’t interested in the art world because it’s such a narrow conversation. It’s more the spillover to the rest of culture that I’ve been impressed by….On the street, it’s more like Beavis and Butt-head. Either people like something or they don’t. It’s like, ‘Heh-heh, that’s cool,’ or ‘Heh-heh, that’s wack.’ It’s very democratic.”
