  1. @ Ricky That’s your history bro. We are talking street art, not graffiti. Shep es el Rey de Propaganda. No mames Vuey!

  2. When you open up a history book in the future you’ll be sure to see Shep. Not any of those early East Coast Jives.

  3. Pass.. sigh

  4. gross

  5. I see Mr. Peanut on a bender

  6. Mr Skank, their warrior cry was “its street art, not graffiti.” They.took pride in their work and did it themselves. Didn’t bite someones image over and over. I mean, how many more millions do artists need? He is stacked with so much cash. Street art came from oppression and depression. When your comfortable going to design school? Yeah that’s not so street. Word to your mother jive sucks, audi 5000 on this one.

  7. When the argument has degenerated to who’s “street and not street”, it’s time to… well… end the argument.

  8. Matter of Opinion. Haters gonna hate. Some people don’t like to see others succeed. I might not like someones art but I don’t go as far as to say they don’t deserve their success or money. That’s taking thing too far and personal IMO. Im not going to impose who is credible or not in the street art graffiti game. @ Ricky I do know about the old graffiti writers from New York and I was impressed when I was in Jr High. I’m in my thirties now and it is what it is. New York writers just don’t cut it for me. It all jive hype.

  9. Not hating on success. Come on, Shepherd comes across as “one of the 99%” Try getting close to him next time. He totally shrugs people off and will hang all night with any celebrity at his gallery. Its like Metallica putting out record after record. They were bad ass back on the day. Now their music is so stale. They tour and make records because they can. Total hype. How many causes can Shepherd help out with? It comes down to money to design. He has his studio in the Ghetto, he rarely comes towards Easy LA. Stays put in little safe Silverlake.

  10. Artist’s statement posted

  11. @ Ricky I’ve heard that before and all honesty I don’t ever want to meet him in person because of that. I just happen to appreciate some of his or his interns work, whomever is creating the work. I think I know where you are coming from now. He’s not the only poster artist out there who I buy and support. So whatever. We are all entitled to our opinions. Much respect.

  12. I feel you. When you come across as “the peoples artist?” You should at least embrace your fans. I’ve met Pushead, Robert Williams, Shag,Coop and Buffmonster. All great guys. Shepard and Olly Moss have their noses so high up. One more thing, street artists do not do product placement. Shepard must have got secretly paid by apple. When the iphone came out, he must have dropped the name 30 times within a three paragraph write up. I don’t hate his success, just remember the people who brought you there. I never step on the less fortunate.

  13. @Ricky, @Skank Actually, I’ve found him to be very approachable at openings. He was just in Denver and seemed like he took the time to talk to as many people as he could, even kids. The bigger problem is people trying to monopolize his attention when there are a mob of fans who also want to say hello. It’s not easy when hundreds of people are clamoring for your attention for hours on end. Peace.

  14. Duality. Orwell. Ok, but her hands look wrong.

  15. *sigh* so far par for the course in my attempts to buy a ltd edition print – hang around for hours, site cannot handle the traffic, attempt to buy stuck on perpetual loop, site crashes, site comes back up, all prints sold – half of them on ebay the next day at twice the price. There has to be a better way to get these prints out there.

  16. @Ricky, @Skank
    Have either one of you ever tried to talk to him at a gallery opening? I’ve found him very approachable and friendly. Just sayin’

  17. Wouldn’t you get sick and tired of people “getting close to [you]” all the time?

    I know I would.

  18. Shep’s always seemed approachable and friendly to anyone when I’ve seen him at openings.
