Shepard Fairey zombies in Chicago?

Street artist Shepard Fairey has been in Chicago this past week for an art opening.  Perhaps not coincidentally, his trademark “Andre The Giant OBEY” paintings have been appearing on buildings around town. . . and so have these awesome life-sized zombies:

If they are not the work of Mr. Fairey personally, then perhaps he has inspired a local imitator.

  1. “If they are not the work of Mr. Fairey personally, then perhaps he has inspired a local imitator.” My brother has been doing this street art for the past three years. Inspired by the walking dead comics, Romero, and then some; he has utilized his graffiti art into layered stencils and has created something unique. No beef with Fairey, but Scott… you can eat shit and kill yourself.

    1. You’re mad at me for praising your brother’s work and confusing him with a famous, successful artist? Okaaaay. . .

      (Also, I stand by the notion that it’s reasonable to conclude new street art appearing in the same week Shepard Fairey is in town might be by Shepard Fairey.)

  2. I love street art, and I love zombies, so combine the two and I am one very happy camper!
    (I wish my boyfriend and I lived closer so we could go see these in person)
