So I recently came across the “fuct facts” where it is made clear that Shepard Fairey aka OBEY has “borrowed” several designs and ideas from fuct, you have publicly addressed your opinion about him – What does Shepard have to say about all this? Has he/you ever tried to contact each other about this matter?
I could care less about OBEY, or anything else they “borrow”. They all
seem very unhappy all the time in that camp. They all need hugs.

From Juxtapoz, interview with Shepard Fairey:
I feel that I am lucky because I’ve created a formula to which my career as an artist, designer and street artist are able to feed off each other. There are some people that are purists that probably still live with their parents who say if you do street art and commercial art, you’re a sellout, but that is just not a realistic perspective for me.
A preview of the work from Shepard Fairey’s upcoming show at White Walls in San Francisco.
We got these examples of the work that will be on display next month. The show opens April 1st, 2006 at White Walls in SF. He’ll have a total of 50 pieces in the show plus a huge wall mural installation. See you there?
