From Supply and Demand, pg.Andy Warhol was a big inspiration because he made a mockery of the fine art world, taking press stills and household items and turning them into high art. I felt like what I was doing was pop art in a similar vein, but I was taking it even further outside the institutions and straight to the street. I had the idea of taking that a step further by taking Marilyns sex symbol face and changing that into Andres ugly face. Andre wasnt a handsome man and hes even a more hideous woman, but people loved the humor of the poster and snapped it up anyway. Is a very famous graphic artist, muralist, and overall artist. He was born on February 15, 1970 in Charleston, South Carolina in the United States. In 1988, the artist graduated from Idyllwild Arts Academy in Palm Springs, California. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island in 1992.
As a young adult, Shepard Fairey became very interested in art. He soon began to use his drawings in T-shirts and skateboards. He was a skateboard-obsessed art student. While in school, Shepard fairey held a part-time job in a skateboarding shop.
Soon after, he hit the skateboard community hard by pasting homemade stickers all over the place. It was then that he realized his desire and interest in the street art culture and graffiti movement. Another strong influence was his love for punk music, which he demonstrated stencils. One of the first images he ever used was that of Andre the Giant. Found this image in a newspaper ad and he chose to introduce it to the streets.
