It’s been nearly 10 years since Shepard Fairey’s last solo exhibition in his hometown of Los Angeles and the iconic HOPE imagery he created for then Presidential candidate Barack Obama. Now for the very first time Shepard Fairey's work has been transformed into a Augmented Reality experience. Experience his most ambitious show to date, aptly titled DAMAGED.
In this unprecedented political climate, Fairey’s message has changed from hope to purpose: “DAMAGED is an honest diagnosis, but diagnosis is the first step to recognising and solving problems. I definitely think that art can be part of the solution because it can inspire people to look at an issue they might otherwise ignore or reject.”
DAMAGED also takes aim at another hindrance to reformative communication: social media. For what should be the most meaningful platform for important discussion ever created, discourse has fallen secondary to self-indulgence and celebrity: “Even prior to the election, I’ve been troubled by the social media mentality of ‘construct your own reality’ in superficial terms, at least. The internet and social media are valuable for democratization, but as Marshall McLuhan warned with his—”the medium is the message”—the rapid pace and temporary nature of social media can lead to throwaway approaches from the consumer and the creator…”

Ratings and Reviews
Shep is writing the future.
Clearly progress isn’t just a word to Shepard Fairey. Here he is 30 years into his career continuing to explore new avenues to get his work and message to the masses. This is an expression on getting up in the modern age. The functionality, UI/UX, image quality and amount of rich content in this app is remarkable. Not only is it like having a gallery in the palm of your hand; the wonderfully thoughtful writing is packed with tons of insight into how Shepard creates his work and why. Any enthusiast of art and cultural progression should download this immediately.
Innovative, creative and inspiring!
This app exceeded all my expectations. Being able to visit an exhibit like this and getting a personal tour by Shepard sharing the meaning and depth behind each art piece is an extraordinary treat! Especially when I don’t even have to leave my home and can watch it anytime, anywhere piece by piece or all at once. Thank you for making an app that provides such great value and is so easy to use. I highly recommend it!
More shows like this please!!!
I downloaded the app and was amazed. This is the future. Fast and inexpensive way to experience an art show without having to leave the house. Also, I was surprised by how much you can learn from one single show. Very educating. It makes it even better that it is an icon like Shepard who is doing this. Can’t wait to experience the next show!
