Photo: Shepard Fairey Rocks Dallas
Shepard Fairey was recently in Dallas, Texas to rock a series of murals coordinated by the Dallas Contemporary Museum. Here are a few select photos from the trip and what he had to say about it.
“The crew and I just got back from an action packed mural mission to Dallas facilitated by the Dallas Contemporary Museum. We did 5 painted murals in 6 days working long hours. I brought along the razor sharpish LA Squad of Z Bomit, Nic Bowers, and Dan Flores, and we were additionally supplemented by some great folks in Dallas like Dalton aka Roadhouse, Mack Simpson, Elissa, and Beatle. I did a well attended lecture with Pedro Alonzo, and rocked a DJ set at the museum. I talked to a bunch of school groups too which made me wonder when I made the shift from a bad influence to a role model? I think there is still some room for debate there, but there is no room for debate when I say Peter, Erin and the rest of the Dallas Contemporary staff took great care of us. Southern hospitality was generally abundant…thanks y’all. Jon Furlong shot a bunch of great photos. Here are some highlights, but check out the links below for the full story of the work and play .” -Shepard Fairey
