Brooklyn Street Art on "On Our Hands"

September 26, 2015

Brooklyn Street Art featured an article discussing Shepard Fairey's most recent projects in collaboration with both Mana Contemporary and Jacob Lewis Gallery.

He addresses an insidious corruption of banks, oil companies, the war industry, and the disinformation industry, and he points to the winnings and to the costs."
