Shepard Fairey Mural at Tufts

I'm not sure how this happened, but apparently Shepard Fairey wanted to do a piece around Boston and chose Tufts University to do it! This is a fantastic mural positioned right outside the campus center on Talbot Ave. I love the limited colour palette and bold, patterned composition. The smaller, tiled images are great too, reminiscent of a city "Post No Bills" construction wall covered in advertising posters. I believe the piece is in conjunction with his new exhibit Supply and Demand at the ICA, which I hope to visit the next time I'm up there in March.

Here are some images of him installing the piece.
Here is information about his recent arrest during the exhibit's opening.

this thing is disintegrating at a discouraging pace.

yeah I know, it makes me very nervous. It'll probably be gone by the time I'm around to really appreciate it.
