His eye-opening street art combines irreverent dark humour with graffiti done in a distinctive stencilling technique.

Shepard Fairey / OBEY – “50 Shades Of Black” at Subliminal Projects

“Music has taught me a great deal about connecting with a broad audience. Music is universal. I’ve had some very moving encounters with art in my life, especially in the street, but almost nothing can compare to the first time I heard the boots marching and first chord of the Sex Pistols’ “Holidays in the Sun”, or the air raid sirens leading into “too black, too strong” on the intro to Public Enemy’s “It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back”, or the opening guitar scream of Black Flag’s “Rise Above.” – Shepard Fairey

MAKE & DE$TROY by SUGAR COATED


This is a collection of illustrative designs inspired by 1930’s animated cartoons, as well as fashion and typography, as a result I end up combining them into tasteful lockups. The characters are all made out of my doodles I make daily. I always have been a fan of funky cartooney little guys and type, I never work fully in Black & White  I usually work with full on color spectrum, so as you can tell it was a blast. Hope you guys enjoy this project as much as I did making it.
