Private Chandran Gallery and Juxtapoz Magazine Dinner hosted by Shepard Fairey
If you haven’t seen, ‘Exit Through The Gift Shop,’ a documentary on street artists, including Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Mr Brainwash and The Invader, and more, you should. Why? Because these street artists were at the forefront of a new genre of art that changed the landscape for the industry. One of the artists mentioned Shepard Fairey, is now considered an American contemporary street artist, activist and graphic designer who was first known for his “Andre the Giant Has a Posse” OBEY campaign. In 2008, he became wildly popular for his “Hope” Poster during the presidential election for Barack Obama and had his collections featured in the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, The Smithsonian, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, plus more.
The influential street artist last night hosted a private dinner in conjunction with Juxtapoz Magazine and Singapore and San Francisco-based Chandran Gallery, at Shore Club’s private villa in Miami Beach. The beach house featuring installations by artists Swoon, Monica Canilao, Jason Jägel, Geoff McFetridge, and Andrew Schoultz welcomed dinner guests to a warm lit poolside dinner.
