Shepard Fairey in Copenhagen for “Your Ad Here” and 5 New Murals

Posted on August 6, 2011

Shepard Fairey has been in Copenhagen for a number of days for his new show Your Ad Here, which opens to the public today at V1 Gallery. Aside from the gallery installation, naturally, he and his team undertook the job of creating 5 gigantic murals on some of the remarkable vertical walls in this capital city of 2 million.

Photographer Sandra Hoj was on hand to witness the installation of one of them and she tells BSA about this piece:

“This piece is the second of five, located on Osterbro. We have an old tradition for murals here, but we rarely see street art of this magnitude. On the second day word had gotten around, and people were camping out in front, following the progress. It was a time consuming piece pasting, tearing and tinting, not even six guys working non stop were able to finish it in just one day. When I returned the next day, it was all done and the sun made it appear almost on fire, crazy beautiful” ~ Sandra Hoj
