The more popular Shepard "OBEY" Fairey gets with the Obama poster crowd, the less popular he gets with the hardcore street art crowd. Shep just finished up a huge, highly publicized legal mural on Houston Street. How's that looking now?
- While still in progress, heads were already spreading venomous hate for it.
- While still in progress, it was tagged up.
- Then somebody filled it full of holes.
- Now somebody's plastered a "Target" sign on it.
