Description

Shepard Fairey's work consistently engages with notions of nationalism, institutional authority, and the undercurrents of various countercultures. Employing street aesthetics, decorative patterns, and visceral characterizations of the human subject, his work is politically motivated and acutely felt. Here, he details a working woman as she glances out and upward, perhaps dreaming of a brighter future.
