Shepard Fairey

The Simpsons definitely got cool points for embracing street art culture in the episode "Exit Through the Kwik-E-Mart.” In addition to street artists Ron English, Kenny Scharf and Robbie Conal guest starring in this episode, OBEY artist Shepard Fairey really represented for the scene. After Bart starts tagging walls, Fairey gets him an opportunity to premiere his pieces in his own exhibit. Not only did they add some humor in the art world, but it also exposed an even bigger audience to the world of street art. Anyone know where we can find one of Bart’s “DOPE” Homer posters?
