Shepard Fairey's 30-Year Artist Career Spotlighted in Paris Retrospective

Entitled “Facing the Giant: 3 Decades of Dissent.”

Shepard Fairey is the subject of a momentous retrospective to be held at Galerie Itinerrance in Paris. Entitled “Facing the Giant: 3 Decades of Dissent,” the exhibition will offer an in-depth look at the iconic graffiti artist’s prolific career starting from his 19-year-old punk beginnings to his current creative endeavors as a 49-year-old artist and activist. Altogether, the presentation aims to shed light on the art and social commentary that is prevalent within Fairey’s practice.

“The title Facing the Giant references the giant of Fairey’s prolifically disseminated early stickers of Andre the Giant, but more enduringly, the giant issues and forces he confronts through his art,” said the gallery in a statement.

The exhibition will launch on June 22. Visit Galerie Itinerrance’s website for further details.

In other standout presentations, acclaimed British artist Harland Miller will unveil large-scale paintings inspired by ‘60s-’70s design at White Cube Hong Kong.
