The Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga presents the first solo exhibition in a Spanish museum on the artist Shepard Fairey curated by Fernando Francés, includes more than 300 works by this US artist born in Charleston, South Carolina.
The works in the exhibition offer a survey of Fairey’s career, which spans twenty-five years to date, and includes paintings, silkscreens, stencils, stickers, illustrations, collage, photographs, sculptures and works in wood and metal. Fairey is known for using a highly defined range of colours based on black, red and white and inspired by Russian propaganda posters, as well as for his ironic critique of present-day issues. His works are influenced by fields such as music, the environment and politics. Shepard Fairey lives and works in Los Angeles.
The ample selection of works in the exhibition Your Eyes Here spans his 25-year-plus career, tracing an artistic trajectory influenced by music, politics – war and peace – and environmental issues. These topics are explored in thematic sections and accompanied by selected examples of his early works, street art and portraits of musicians, artists and activists, as well as a considerable number of his screen prints, an essential part of his production.
