Urban Street Art: Shepard Fairey Hits Melrose Avenue

L.A. street artist Shepard Fairey recently put up this piece which can be seen on the busy street of Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. Fairey and his team of artists created the 56 ft. x 18 ft. painting on the exterior of De La Barracuda, a clothing, hair, and art gallery space.

A spokesman for Fairey said that the artist has a close working relationship with Barracuda. He said the outdoor wall space usually is used for advertising but there was a gap in bookings, so the owner allowed Fairey to temporarily take over the space for his artwork.

The mural is scheduled to stay up for only another couple of weeks before it is covered up by an advertisement.
