“POST NO BILLS” BOOK
It was 1989 when Shepard Fairey, a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, first
created the now-infamous THE GIANT HAS A POSSE sticker. The black and white image
of the huge wrestler’s subdued and vacant stare became an underground icon and by
the mid-90’s about a half-million had been posted around the world. “Post No Bills”
documents Shepard Fairey’s career from his creation of the Giant phenomenon up to
and including the advent of Black Market, a San Diego design agency Fairey formed
with Dave Kinsey and Philip Dewolff. Today Shepard Fairey creates designs for Studio
#1, produces Giant art, exhibits worldwide in galleries, and still keeps his Giant
images on the streets.
