Shepard Fairey /Margaret Kilgallen / Barry McGee
Emerging in the early 1990s were three artists who found their roots in the graffiti scene that was developing in the United States. Shepard Fairey, whose most famous piece remains the Barack Obama "Hope" poster, utilizes his understanding of graphics to create poster-like art that conveys a political message. Margret Kilgallen had a tragic short life, but her work continues to endure and influence. Kilgallen, along with her husband Barry McGe,e worked in the San Francisco area and became cornerstones of the Bay Area Mission School of Art, creating work that blends aspects of street art with concepts of installation. McGee continues to work into the present day, creating art that is shown internationally.
