14 story mural in paris by shepard fairey

new mural by shepard fairey (obey) all images copyright butterfly

shepard fairey has plastered upon the wall of a fourteen story building his most recent street art installation. the exterior of the building is decorated with red, black and white paint, applied by fairey and a team on a moveable platform, to reveal a close-perspective portrait of a woman and obey style flower. the piece has been put in place with the assistance of galerie itinerrance, butterfly, and mairie of 13th for the community art project entitled ‘street art 13’. in this collaborative effort, these organizations hope to breathe new creative life into the zone in allowing artists building sides as canvases for their bright artworks.

  • This is a beautiful and haunting work of art The artist has made this part of the city more interesting and human Is the woman a resident from another country or is she a folk heroine? He has an entire body of well loved work ,now extended to huge scale I hope we will see much more How pendantic and small minded not to see that What have you done to improve your city, smug critics?

  • What kind of artist is that copying other people work??! Totally not impressed!

  • People are so quick to complain. Who says he didn’t pay $10 bucks for the istockphoto image? I’d just rather he filled all 14 stories. Large scale public art, whether you like the artist or like to hate him, is good for any city.

  • Derivate of a stock photograph. Based on this I guess that means that means that people who put up billboards are artists too.

    Not impressed.

  • where is the problem?! he took the foto as a basis for his art … without his work nobody would care about the foto at all! and btw he also altered the original set up

  • Just another violation of other artists rights. nothing more. not an art.
