Artist: Shepard Fairey  |  Location: Washington, DC  |  Song: KRS-One “Disaster Kit”


Without a doubt, Shepard Fairey is one of the most brazen, recognizable, and prolific street artists in the world. This picture represents a small portion of a mural in Washington, DC that no longer exists. While I am happy to have photographed it before it’s ultimate demise, I regret that I did not do so before weather and vandals took their toll. The entire mural was impressive but I think this portion of it is the coolest. Poetry and dissent go hand in hand. What say you, poets?
