Shepard Fairey and Co. invade the 'hood

He's best known for his now historic—and iconic—Barack Obama campaign poster from 2008, but street art lovers and skaters have been familiar with the They Live-channeling Giant for years. That said, now that he's one the most talked about guy on the scene next to Banksy, it's all kinds of exciting when you spot his work on your bus route to the office.

He's in town as part of NEXT and Artropolis at the Merchandise Mart here, where he's got a large installation in the lobby (pictured below). He also put up a large mural as part of Navy Pier Art Walk 2011 (pictured above). But that hasn't stopped him from plastering the city with his own renegade works, many of which appeared on Grand Ave near Dialogue Inc headquarters.

Here are a load of shots for you to check out:

And here's a video I found on Code of Conduct's site, of Fairey installing the mural last week:

I walk past the mural outside Code Of Conduct every day on my way to work.

So very beautiful!

I'll have to make it a point to go to the other parts of the city to see the other ones he's done.

Thanks for this informative post!
