Shepard Fairey's Ronald Reagan Street Art Mural For LA Freewalls Project

Shepard Fairey's latest work, a hand-sprayed stencil of Ronald Reagan in downtown LA, depicts the late president splattered with an unknown substance. In his hands, the conservative icon holds a sign that reads, "LEGISLATIVE INFLUENCE FOR SALE." The piece was erected Wednesday, in time for the opening of MOCA's Art In The Streets exhibition. On his choice of subject, Fairey said,

“I was tired of people blaming Obama for the poor economy. Really, it all goes back to Reagan.”
