Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a thoughtful and fair analysis of my art AND business practices." - Shepard Fairey

"Shepard Fairey, Inc.: Artist • Professional • Vandal is possibly the most important art book to come out in recent times. And while you might buy it for the pictures, you should read it for an education." - Cartwheel Art

After reading the first few pages, I knew I had to get the book for myself so I could finish it!

The visuals and insight create a beautiful work of art in and of itself, often moreso than the topics it highlights.

I absolutely loved G. James Daichendt's last book, Stay Up! Los Angeles Street Art, so when I heard that not only was he coming out with a new book about Shepard Fairey, but that he compares him to Thomas Kinkade, I was sold! I have been long awaiting this new book and as always, Daichendt astounds! The visuals and insight create a beautiful work of art in and of itself, often moreso than the topics it highlights. Whether you are an avid reader, underground graffiti writer, gallery curator or part of any other creative field, this is a MUST READ story!

The perfect follow-up to his previous book,
Stay Up! Los Angeles Street Art.
Not only is this a beautifully designed coffee table book but, Daichent’s scholarly approach to investigating Fairey’s back-story is addictive. By the end, I had such a deeper appreciation for the journey Fairey had created for himself and us (the audience). Whether you’re a fan of Fairey or not, I’d recommend this book to anyone interested in understanding better the influence Shepard Fairey has had on our culture.

Wow - what a book. I love the design and was not disappointed with the content. The book treats the subject of Obey Giant aka Shepard Fairly with a critical eye. Nice job.

This book is fantastic. Daichendt's perspective on Fairey is critical yet fair. A must buy for the Fairey or street art fan!

Jim Daichendt has done it again! Arguably the leading expert on street art in America, Daichendt has firmly established himself as rock star amongst Art Historians. This isn't just another propaganda piece for Shepard. This is an honest and critical look into the complicated life of one of the most influential artists of our day. A great read and now a permanent addition to my coffee table. 5 STARS!!!

Daichendt's work does a fine job of combining the visual power of Fairey's career with an intelligent critical review of his work and impact on street art and culture in general. Highly recommended and a great read.
