Frank Shepard Fairey (* February 15, 1970 in Charleston, South Carolina) is a contemporary street art artist, graphic artist and illustrator from the skateboard scene. First known for his André the Giant Has a Posse sticker campaign. He usually uses only his second name and surname.

Fairey invented the André the Giant Has a Posse sticker campaign in 1989 while studying at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD).

This developed into the Obey Giant campaign, which developed into a worldwide campaign through the collaboration and reproduction of the stickers. His Obey campaign uses various quotes from the John Carpenter movie “Sie leben!”, including the “Obey” quote and the “This is Your God” quote. Other influences on the Obey campaign include feminist conceptual artist Barbara Kruger. Also the artist Robbie Conal Fairey, who graduated from RISD in 1992 with a Bachelor of Arts in Illustration.

He then founded a small print shop called Alternate Graphics in Providence, specializing in screen printing, T-shirts and stickers. While in Providence, Fairey met American filmmaker Helen Stickler in 1994, who also attended RISD, where she graduated in film. In spring 1995 Stickler completed a short film about Fairey and his art. The film premiered in 1995 at the New York Underground Film Festival. It was also shown at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997 and at over 70 other film festivals and museums worldwide.

Shepard Fairey, Dave Kinsey and Phillip DeWollf founded the design agency BLK/MRKT in 1997. In particular, they were specialized in guerrilla marketing and the development of powerful marketing campaigns. Clients included Pepsi, Hasbro and Netscape. Fairey left BLK/MRKT in 2003 and founded his own agency “Studio Number One”. This agency works for clients such as Virgin, Adidas and Nike. Fairey founded the fashion label “OBEY clothing” in 2001.
