Shot in Williamsburg, Brooklyn – Wheatpaste sticker on brick wall
Years after shooting this I’ve come a long way in understanding the NYC street art scene. This is a work by Shepard Fairey (notorious for his politically charged Obey theme) – Years after shooting this I read the story of this particular piece. Apparently he’s had his fair share of beatings and arrests from the cops, this is his retaliation.
