Probably most well known for his iconic “Hope” 2008 Presidential campaign poster for Barack Obama,American street artist Shepard Fairey is bringing a collection of unique and original paintings to Paris, definitely one of the highlights of street art exhibitions available here.
Rare to find in Europe, this is a must-see during your visit for those appreciative of a cool punk exhibit by a famous artist in a modern gallery.
One of the most influential street artists
“Superman is Dead”, the title of the exhibition, features collaborations with photographer Dennis Morris on representations of Sid Vicious (former member of the Sex Pistols). In this case, the latter is Fairey’s “Superman” to whom the exhibit is tribute (hence “SID”).
Through paintings, prints, and photographs, this exhibit by one of the most influential street artists of today is a great not only for fans of punk and street art, but also those wanting a glimpse of a new image and attitude towards art, music, and society.
