Most people know Shepard Fairey from his "OBEY GIANT" Campaign. Beginning in 1989, he put up stickers and posters of the face of the wrestler "Andre the Giant." What looks like an advertising campaign with no product is in reality the biggest Street Art project that this world has seen. Supply and Demand is the book that finally does justice to Shepard Fairey's entire body of work, a massive retrospective covering 17 Years of this groundbreaking artist's prodigious output. Through the lens of esteemed writers and critics such as Carlo McCormick, Steven Heller and Roger Gastman, Fairey's work is seen for all its depth and placed in context as art, design, social experiment and Graffiti. This massive book doesn't fail to impress. All areas of the enigmatic artist's work, travels and travails are illuminated; from exhibitions, posters, flyers, silkscreens and stickers to high altitude pursuits, citations and police beatings, its all documented in a museum quality layout and binding.
