Shephard Fairey in Detroit: Stenciling and Spraying. Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Frankie Beane

Shephard Fairey (if you don’t know who he is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shepard_Fairey) is in Detroit for a nine day residency. He was to have started a mural on the side of One Campus Martius, but the weather was not cooperating–it rained.

Not one to be deterred, Fairey and his assistants worked inside  in the middle of parking structure Z. It seems appropriate–or it just me?

Hawt Damn! That’s Fierce.

Detroit is trying to revitalize their downtown using  street art. They have had 36 well-known (I have no idea how they judged that) artist come to town to do murals in the last two years.

The information came out of an article in the Detroit Free Press
