Shepard Fairey

Shepard Fairey, who just completed a giant mural on Houston St, has added a similar looking decoration to the upstairs bar at Bowery Presents music venue Music Hall of Williamsburg. The permanent installation is two murals on adjoining walls. True story: "Listening to a playlist including Metallica, Fugazi, and Band of Horses, Fairey's pasted posters feature images demonstrating his disdain for the dysfunctional democracy and the need for campaign finance reform."

Fairey's NYC murals (with the Music Hall one being advertised as the only indoor one) are to promote his upcoming exhibition at Deitch Projects, and "as part of the OBEY phenomenon aimed to enhance the urban landscape". The first chance to see the mural is at the Hellyeah show at the venue tonight (4/27). It will also be the last time to see it since Pantera fans will surely burn the Band of Horses-loving wimpy artwork to the ground. More pictures of the art below...
