We were extremely concerned about recent Splasher Target Shepard Fairey earlier today when we heard he was in the hospital. Was the anti-street art pressure getting to him? Did the Splasher go too far?
Turns out, the Godfather of American Street Art went in for some emergency eye surgery last night, cancelling his appearance on “Design Matters” today. However, we just got word that Fairey was still a bit groggy when the powers that be made that decision, and as soon as he woke up, he demanded that he do the show. So, Fairey joins Debbie Millman today on the final “Design Matters” show of the year, live from his hospital bed. What a way to end the season!
