London Pleasure Gardens installation by Shepard Fairey

30 Jun

I love graffiti artist Shepard Fairey’s work – you know him..remember this piece, you probably saw it around….

Artist Shepard Fairey’s iconic poster design

He has installed a giant 100 ft mural for the London Olympics in the newly constructed Pleasure Gardens.

Of the process he said ““I am really happy to be associated with the London Pleasure Gardens, it has a very rich history and it will be something that unsuspecting Olympic enthusiasts will stumble across. The mural symbolises freedom on speech and expression and it is the tallest piece I have ever done in a space that has a great deal of character and history and it is an incredible place for my work to be shown”
