Frank Shepard Fairey or Shepard Fairey, also known by the pseudonym Obey, is an American street artist, screenprinter, muralist and illustrator born February 15, 1970 in Charleston, South Carolina.

Coming from the skateboarding scene, he first became known for the André the Giant Has a Posse stickers, which led to the Obey Giant campaign.

For the 2008 American presidential campaign, he created Barack Obama's “Hope” poster, which would become an iconic image of the campaign. The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston considers him one of the best known, best and most influential street art artists of the moment.

In France, Fairey was first exhibited at the Base, Invader's ephemeral gallery where he presented small portraits of hooded guerrillas and several times at the Magda Danysz gallery which very early on defended his work in galleries. He participated in the MUR in May 2007 during a piece with WK interact. One of his poster recompositions was exhibited at the Fondation Cartier during the exhibition “Born in the street - Graffiti”, in the fall of 2009. In 2019, he participated in the Grenoble Street Art Fest and was the subject of the exhibition “Facing the Giant: decades of Dissent”, which celebrates his 30-year career, at the Itinerrance gallery (Paris).
