A Shepard Fairey Primer From USA Network

Among the accolades Shepard Fairey has been receiving recently is “Character Approved” a new award from USA Network that honors leading innovators who are shaping American Culture. 

For the awards, Henry Alex Rubin (the director of Murderball) has put together a fantastic five minute vignette about Shepard that is, for us, one of the most informative “Shepard Fairey 101’s” we’ve yet seen. 

Ever wonder why Shepard uses only red and black in his images? 

Watch the video.

In addition to Shepard, USA Network is also honoring Lupe Fiasco, Shepard Fairey, David Chang, Patrick Robinson, Charles Best, Jimmy Wales and Jennifer Siegal.  Click here to watch the rest of the videos.  They’re all terrific.
