A critique by artist Mark Vallen

Most well known for his "Obey Giant" street posters, Shepard Fairey has carefully nurtured a reputation as a heroic guerilla street artist waging a one man campaign against the corporate powers-that-be. Infantile posturing aside, Fairey's art is problematic for another, more troubling reason - that of plagiarism.
