Frank “Shepard” Fairey is an iconic figure of the Street Art movement. Inspired by graffiti and skateboarding culture, graphic design and social realism, Fairey blurs the boundaries between fine and commercial art, treating all surfaces as his canvas. He is best known for his 2008 Barack Obama ‘Hope’ poster, now a shared symbol in our cultural lexicon.

‘Debbie Harry Zebra Skin’ is a hand-painted print on wood, one of only six impressions. Evoking the textures of street art, Fairey layers paint and newspaper to depict iconic musician Debbie Harry of the band Blondie. Big hair, red lips and cheekbones like zebra stripes, Harry stares straight at the viewer. She is bold and graphic – a true icon.

Exploring issues of self-empowerment, rebellion, xenophobia and environmentalism, Fairey is an activist and the man behind OBEY streetwear, represented in the collection of the Smithosonian, Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. This work is for free thinkers, collectors of street, contemporary and pop art.
