But did you know that street art icon Shepard Fairey started his Obey empire in the early 80’s in Providence Rhode Island? Check out this really cool short film that is┬ábased on the true story of Shepard Fairey’s first act of street art during his time at Rhode Island School of Design from 1989-1992.
