Best known for the famous “Hope” poster he designed for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign and his iconic image of pro wrestler André the Giant emblazoned with the word “OBEY,” Shepard Fairey is one of the country’s most famous and influential street artists. Many of Fairey’s prints were produced in collaboration with the late Richard Duardo at Modern Multiples in Los Angeles, a print shop favored by San Antonio collectors Harriett and Ricardo Romo. Typically rendered in a limited color palette of black, white, tan and red, Fairey’s bold works come to light at the McNay in a never-before-exhibited selection of eight large-scale prints the Romos gifted to the museum.
