Opera Gallery Dubai is proud to present this unprecedented exhibition dedicated to internationally renowned artist Shepard Fairey.

Very few street artists have managed to make a trans-generational and cultural impact the way Shepard has. What started almost like a prank back in 1989 with André the Giant Has a Posse guerrilla stickers evolved into an idiosyncratic, deep artistic practice, gracing private institutions and museums with emblematic pieces. Shepard is now a force to reckon within the art world.

What makes Shepard’s body of work so unique is the seemingly simple message that the canvases convey, carrying so much more than what meets the eyes. Pieces need to be analysed, contextualised, and all of the sudden they become more than the sum of their parts. Over the years, we have seen Shepard’s murals, prints and messages evolve, making their way into becoming the most iconic campaign in support of the 44th US President Barack Obama, amongst other notable achievements.

Shepard’s work cannot be confined to gallery and institution walls. The artist also has a proven record of painting murals all over the world, redefining and embellishing various neighbourhoods with his vibrant visuals and politically committed messages.

On the occasion of his first visit to Dubai, the artist has been given the freedom to execute a giant mural in a secret location revealed this Monday 15 March 2021. The mural, consisting of two large walls facing each other, has just been unveiled in D3 (Dubai’s Design District).
