Shepard Fairey and his crew kicked off their city-wide art project this afternoon at 331 Singleton. This is the first of several large scale murals that Shepard has designed to dress up Dallas' nekkid walls. Take a first peek, and then read a little more about today's scene on Unfair Park.

It all leads up to Fairey and the Dallas Contemporary's Phenomenon dance party on Saturday night. But do check back daily: We'll be supplementing you with photos until the last stencil is filled so that you can follow along with Fairey's work.

Becoming an international city? Dallas has been a international city for a few years not only does something like this happening prove that but it makes it even more so. So rather than talk trash be happy for ppl and stop being a grinch

Seriously?
Seriously?

and Dallas falls all over itself again fawning over the idea that it's becoming an international city. Meanwhile Sheppard throws his 'branding' up and laughs all the way to the bank. This con was explained best in 77 by the Sex Pistols when asked about their upcoming US tour, 'we're gonna rip dollars off the yanks'.

Jamie, you lucky dog - following Shepard Fairey around all week and watching him paint murals.  Jealous.  :)

Fairey throws his branding up on the otherwise icky buildings of West Dallas and gets paid for it.

You throw your branding up on this comment page...and dont make a dime off of it.

Hmmm, let's see which branding guru is the one I want to hire???

Who gives a shit if Fairey "laughs all the way to the bank"?  Increased notoriety for both Fairey and the city is a good scenario for both parties.
