One of the world’s most beloved and well-known street artists has landed in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart for NEXT and created Revolutions: The Album Cover Art of Shepard Fairey. In talking with the artist, his love of music is as obvious and natural as the air we breathe, so him bringing this musically inspired installation to Chicago flows organically and beautifully. The counterculture created by Shepard has been so successful that it’s almost as if the art world has done a 180 in their appreciation of street art as a whole. Still, for every Shepard Fairey or Banksy, there are thousands of street artists risking arrest and ridicule to communicate their creativity on a daily basis.
