On March 4, Shepard Fairey will guest star on the 23rd season of the iconic television series The Simpsons in an episode titled, “Exit Though The Kwik-E-Mart.” In order to get back at his dad, Bart goes undercover as a graffiti street artist and plasters Homer’s unflattering image all over Springfield. But one night, Bart and Milhouse get caught in the act by established street artists Shepard Fairey, Ron English, Kenny Scharf and Robbie Conal (guest voicing as themselves), and to Bart’s surprise, they invite him to exhibit his satirical artwork in his very own gallery show. Meanwhile, a hip, new health food superstore opens in Springfield that threatens to put Apu and the Kwik-E-Mart out of business. In speaking about the honor of being able to be a part of such a groundbreaking program, Fairey commented “part of being on ‘The Simpsons,’ is you’re being honored as a reference point in culture. But you also can’t be too sensitive about that part of culture being made fun of. There’s irony that comes with something outsider becoming insider. And they do a great job of examining that.”
