My newest book and my first with Rizzoli, COVERT TO OVERT: The Under/Overground Art of Shepard Fairey, comes out tomorrow. I’m very proud of it because I’m not only excited about the content itself but I also think the design and photography are the best of any of my books so far. When I was in art school, I was told that screen-printing and street art weren’t fine art or “real art.” I didn’t listen, and as a result, both have been the key to virtually every opportunity I’ve had as an artist. I’ve never defined myself solely as a street artist, but as someone who believes art is a powerful form of expression that should be utilized and woven into many aspects of the world.
– Shepard

“Shepard’s recent art and poster works, and his triumphant return to his street-art roots with murals, all in work never before published. Shepard Fairey rose out of the skateboarding scene, creating his “Andre the Giant Has a Posse” sticker campaign in the late ’80s, and has since achieved a mainstream recognition that most street artists never find. Fairey’s “Hope” poster, created during Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, is arguably the most iconic American image since Uncle Sam. Fairey has become a pop-culture icon himself, though he has remained true to his street-art roots. Covert to Overt showcases his most recent evolution from works on paper to grander art installations, cross-cultural artworks, and music/art collaborations. The book also includes his ubiquitous streetwear and chronicles his return to public artworks. His signature blend of politics, street culture, and art makes Fairey unlike any other subculture/street artist working today.

This book showcases the significant amount of art he has created the last several years: street murals, mixed-media installations, art/music events, countless silk screens, and work from his extremely successful OBEY brand.”  -Rizzoli
