On a somewhat related note, I work down the street from Irvine Contemporary—a great art gallery in the Logan Circle neighborhood of Washington, DC. Right now they are exhibiting works by Shepard Fairey, a Charleston-born artist who is now located in Los Angeles, California. He's become known for his intensely graphic style and street art. The gallery is presenting nine amazing pieces until December 6th as a part of the exhibit Regime Change Starts at Home. If you're lucky, you can also see some of work plastered to the sides of buildings all over DC. Irvine Contemporary is located at 1412 14th Street NW, Washington, DC 20005 (irvinecontemporary.com). |DBK
