Preview: Shepard Fairey’s “Sound & Vision” at Stolen Space

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

This Friday, London’s street art stronghold, Stolen Space Gallery, will open its doors for Shepard Fairey‘s solo show, “Sound & Vision.” His first solo show in 5 years, “Sound & Vision” includes new mixed-media paintings and collages. Fairey’s sleek, sophisticated designs melt disparate pop culture elements into dark canvases of burgundy and brown hues where the textual and figurative become inseparable. The new works have a political edge typical of Fairey, but this time he chose to explore his other artistic passion: music. Fairey’s friend, DJ and producer Z-Trip will be spinning an audio soundtrack to the show that will give it a multisensory dimension. Shepard Fairey cites punk and rock bands of the ’70s and ’80s as his early influences, and the audio aspect of the show will give further insight into the artist’s thought process. Take a look at our preview below.
