Running from June 23 to July 21, 2007, New York’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery will host an exhibit of Shepard Fairey’s artwork titled E Pluribus Venom. Fairey, best known for his “propaganda engineering” and stencil-esque renditions of Andre the Giant for his Obey Giant campaign, will show pieces that include paintings, mixed media, screen prints, album covers, and more.
His work, often politically or culturally insubordinate, has been used in numerous industries and will be featured on the cover of Smashing Pumpkins’ new album, Zeitgeist, which will be released on July 10. Fairey will also have large-scale installations and murals displayed at an alternate exhibition space.
The gallery will hold Fairey’s opening reception on Saturday, June 23 from 5-9 pm. A reception for Souther Salazar, whose Space Cadets solo exhibit of mixed media, ink drawings, and sculptures concurrently runs at Jonathan LeVine Gallery from June 23 to July 21, will take place on the 23rd at the same time.
