Day 27 of the Grammy Chase and today’s inspiration comes from an artist by the name of Shepard Fairey, who has received a significant amount of press in the last 18 months or so. His artful interpretation that played a role in the popularization of the Obama Campaign brought him rockets-ship success and visibility while simultaneously landing him in hot water. Unless you were born say, yesterday, then you should be familiar with the image below. Well, lo and behold, guess who tapped Shepard to lend his artistic talents for their annual event? You guessed it, my good friends at the Recording Academy. Shepard designed the image above for the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards Ceremony.
Shep is responsible for this iconic image of Barack Obama, which will probably be remembered as one of the most popular images of the 2000 decade. To read about the controversy, click here.
