And for years before that, he bombarded us with his ubiquitous “OBEY” sticker campaign, one of the most well-known graffiti images ever.
This year, coinciding with the festivities of Art Basel, it seems Fairey is going to be all over Miami as well.
At MAM, Fairey will unveil a 20-foot wide vinyl banner on the museum’s exterior, titled Arab Woman. The work, loaded with political implications, will be an update of a 2006 piece of the same name.
Head on down to 2700 NW 2nd Ave. on December 3, and you’ll see another public art project by Fairey. This major site-specific street installation will be a mural presented on shipping containers in a vacant Wynwood lot.
And if that wasn’t enough Fairey, OHWOW is having a benefit group exhibition (for the Lance Armstrong Foundation), in which they will present even more work by the artist. The show is called STAGES and is to take place December 3 through 6 at 888 Biscayne Blvd., downtown, just a hop and a skip from the American Airlines Arena.
