Artist Shepard Fairey of OBEY GIANT did a wonderful review of the “10 Years of Wooster Collective“, a group art exhibit at a temporary space created Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City that celebrated the culture of street art documented by Wooster Collective over the last decade. The show ran from August 7, 2013 to August 24th and featured over fifty local and international artists, including Shepard Fairey.
The temporary space located in the Chelsea district was curated by Marc and Sara Schiller, and featured works highlighting the ephemeral art scene ever-present in the five boroughs of New York. For the fully packed exhibition, Shepard prepared three classic 3-face series works in a variety of colors, featuring more than five layers of abstract texturing on each piece. Throughout the night, numerous legendary street artists were seen walking around signing autographs and taking photos with admiring fans and fellow artists alike. Additionally, Shepard painted a peace and justice themed mural in Dumbo (District Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass).
