Shepard Fairey Speaks About His New Art Project at London Pleasure Gardens

For the upcoming 2012 Summer Olympic Games the services of Shepard Fairey alongside Ron English, RISK and TrustoCorp have been commissioned by the London Pleasure Gardens as part of a cultural exposition beginning beginning June 30. In response, the BBC published a story questioning the intentions of the artwork presented by these iconic street and pop artists, thereby pushing the topic further. Channeling WWII-era propaganda, Fairey went on to adorn the side of a decaying building with work while also taking a moment to discuss the legitimacy of his creative campaign.
