With roots in both skate and punk rock culture, Shepard Fairey is considered by many to be one of today’s most influential street artists. He’s also the founder of then clothing line OBEY.
His Los Angeles mansion, which Arrestedmotion.com described as “tastefully appointed and filled with his iconic imagery,” is now on the market with an asking price of $1.8 million.
At the moment, it’s unclear whether the art pieces that are currently seen throughout the home will be included in the sale.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom, 1929 Mediterranean-style home features a living room with high, arched-beamed ceilings; an eat-in kitchen with a banquette that has been hand-painted; a formal dining room accompanied by a viewing balcony; and a two-car garage, with additional storage space that has often been used by the iconic artist as a painting studio. Some of his sketches remain on the walls.
There’s also a hidden creative space that was frequently used by the Charleston, South Carolina, native during his illustration and sketching sessions. One bedroom, which is situated on its own floor and has a its own entrance, can be converted into a guest suite or office. There are multiple outdoor entertaining and dining options as well.
Fairey is widely known for his now iconic “Hope” poster that was introduced during the 2008 U.S. presidential election and inspired by President Barack Obama.”
