OBEY IN CHARLESTON PART2
I was able to be at the Groucho wall from the start, so here’s some shots of the process. Also, a little write up from Shepard on being in his home town and doing murals.
“I grew up in downtown Charleston and I always found inspiration in the historical architecture even if I found some of the conservative attitudes stifling. To have my murals going up around these historic and beautiful neighborhoods is amazing. I’m grateful to the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art and the Cultural Affairs Department of Charleston for supporting me because I think public art and street art are still controversial. I was arrested in Charleston in 1996 and it’s exciting that I’m back doing a show at the Halsey and having the support of the local art community.”
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post.
