Lost at E Minor x Shepard Fairey


by Derrick Ableman

Contemporary artist Shepard Fairey is hijacking our favorite weekly email publication, Lost at E Minor, by plotting a kamikaze course through a posse of his favorite street artists, photographers and left-of-center bands next Tuesday, 20 January 2009.

First achieving international exposure with his ubiquitous Andre the Giant sticker, Shepard Fairey’s clever and iconic stencil work has quickly become entrenched in our physical and cultural landscape, appearing everywhere from lampposts and apparel to Barack Obama‘s historic presidential campaign, a sample of which graces the cover of Time Magazine’s Person of the Year issue.

A titan behind the design of our time, Fairey will clue us in on his top art picks of 2008, such as the French photographer JR, whose multi-story Xerox blow-ups have adorned buildings across the globe, including London’s Tate Modern. Fairey’s turn at the wheel takes us under the radar and out of the box, name checking an unknown and soon-to-brake wave of makers and thinkers, all spoiling to share their worlds and work.

A regular contributor to CH, Lost At E Minor is an online publication featuring their latest favorites from the flux of contemporary pop culture, including art, illustration, photography, music, fashion, film, and more. Since 2005, their global network of editors and writers have kept their collective ear to the rail of the 21st century, inspiring readers with the most daring and inventive work this changing world has to offer.
