Legislative Influence for sale. Shepard Fairey Art Versailles
   
Shepard Fairey said Obey was born in 1970 in Charleston in the United States.

He plunges into the world of graphics from the age of 14 by drawing images that will be flocked on t-shirts and skateboards.
Influenced by the work of Andy Warhol or the Russian artist Alexander Rodtchenko, he naturally moved towards artistic studies.

Thus, at the end of the 1980s, he created from the figure of the wrestler André the Giant a series of stickers and posters that they clandestinely pasted by the thousands on the walls of American cities. It is one of the first and most important «viral» Street Art campaigns which shows the strike force capacity of this new form of underground expression.

His work was recognized worldwide during the 2008 American presidential campaign with the creation of Barack Obama's hope poster, which became an iconic image of the campaign. The President will thank him personally for the influence his poster may have had during the presidential elections. The Boston Institute of Contemporary Art considers him to be one of the best and most influential Street Art artists of the day. Despite everything, if he is one of the pioneers of street art, his works are considered by law to sometimes infringe artistic property. During some of his troubles with the law, this does not prevent his exhibitions in various museums from doubling in attendance.
