Here’s one you street art fans have been waiting for… Drawing on his love of David Bowie’s music, Shepard Fairey has named the exhibition after a Bowie song, ‘Sound and Vision,’ with the intention, as was Bowie’s triumph, to master music and visual presentation with equal measure. Fairey says, “No matter how much I love art, or try to convince myself of its relevance in society, the fact remains that music is much more able to reach people’s hearts and minds.” So the aim of the show is to awaken the same level of emotion in people with his art that Bowie and many others can with their music.
Will he manage it? We’ll be going, so we’ll give you our bespoke lowdown afterwards.
New works will include mixed media paintings on canvas, works on paper, retired stencils collages, rubylith cuts, and as well as serigraphs on wood, metal and paper.
