TV Guy: Profile of a street artist; Veterans Day movies – Times Herald

On Saturday, Hulu begins streaming the documentary “Obey Giant,” a profile of street artist Shepard Fairey.

Best known for his creation of the “Hope” poster associated with Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, “Obey” explores Fairey’s youth and his early works, including stickers proclaiming that “Andre the Giant Has a Posse,” which became a viral urban art phenomenon in the pre-digital age.

While many associate street art with the graffiti scene and downtown grit, Fairey hails from South Carolina, where he attended prep school and had parents who recognized his talents from an early age, encouraging his art.

“Giant” also wrestles with the questions of legality and artistic merit that have followed Fairey and his use of appropriated imagery.
