Look him up, if you don't know him. He does some cool street art stuff.

Or what Andre the Giant Has a Posse is.

I have a pretty cool hoodie with a sugar skull on it drawn by him. I honestly had no idea who he was until my cousin pointed it out to me last week.

I love Shepard Fairey's art, but I think the whole OBEY brand is the point where he became a sellout. It doesn't feel like art anymore.

He didn't become a sellout, he just can't help that a part of his brand skyrocketed amongst urban culture. Nowadays you can't even use the sticker skateboarding/snowboarding without being judged as a "hypebeast"
