Shepard Fairey’s Guns & Roses


Earlier this year, Shepard Fairey hit Chicago with his massive album art mural gracing an underpass. Now he’s been spotted all the way in Copenhagen, Denmark. His second piece there was captured by photographer Henrik Haven. Fairey’s own version of Guns & Roses took two days to complete, and it is located at Nygrdsvej, 2100 sterbro.

The popular Obey artist has a show this weekend, called “Your Ad Here,” at the V1 Gallery in Denmark which will run till September 3, 2011. It will be comprised of a broad array of mixed media works on canvas and paper, as well as screen prints, retired stencils, and Rubylith cuts. Building upon Fairey's history of questioning the control of public space and public discourse, much of the art in "Your Ad Here" examines advertising and salesmanship as tools of propaganda and influence.
