Shepard Fairey known on the underground sub culture art scene for his experiment in phenomenology, and more recently; Fairey gained world wide fame for his Obama poster creation. Shepard has had an interesting life recently, he’s was sued by the Associated press and arrested in Boston last month during his first major art museum exhibit. But Things are looking up for MR. Shepard Fairey, He recently partnered with Saks Fifth Avenue to create an ad campaign. Shepard Fairey along with Studio Number One employee Cleon Peterson applied their propaganda styled street art to the Saks Fifth Avenue Spring 2009 advertising campaign.
The campaign titled “I Want It” features the typical Shepard Fairey color scheme: red, white and black with big block letters, and Soviet-era graphics spirit of Constructivism art. The campaign posters feature various models wearing high-end brands and individual products.
The new spring 2009 department store catalog cover and shopping bags will feature the slogan “Want It!” in a few different designs. Not sure how long the campaign will last but, I’m pretty sure the posters and bags will become collectors items.
