The website for the artist/ museum/ brand/ magazine collaboration I posted about recently
is going live today, including behind the scenes images of the creation of walls in LA.
This huge wall (a peace elephant and dove) is the largest Shepard Fairey has ever done - 70ft X 106ft; it took 6 days to complete during July. It's going to be featured in the November issue of Vanity Fair, and at the artinthestreets website
artist: Shepard Fairey
West Hollywood Library, Los Angeles
