Propaganda Graphic Artist Shepard Fairey Arrested Friday Night in Boston

Commerical artist / graphic designer Shepard Fairey was arrested Friday night, 6 February 2009, in Boston on his way to the Institute of Contemporary Art to DJ at a sold-out party kicking off his first solo exhibition, “Supply and Demand.” Two arrest warrants had been issued 24 January after police determined that he had tagged property in two locations with his street art campaign featuring Andre the Giant and the word "obey," said Boston police officer James Kenneally.
