Shepard Fairey is known for his OBEY street art featuring such icons as Andre the Giant and Barack Obama. Now he’s been hired by Showtime to produce art based on their cult TV series “Dexter.”
Is teaming with the cable TV network a bit “corporate” for the underground artist? Or with a thriving business selling T-shirts and prints, is Shepard Fairey really that underground anymore? Has he been embraced, to a degree, by the mainstream?
You’ll eventually be able to purchase the “OBEY Dexter” art on Showtime’s website.
