Description: It’s been nearly 10 years since Shepard Fairey’s last solo exhibition in his hometown of Los Angeles and the iconic HOPE imagery he created for then Presidential candidate Barack Obama. Now for the very first time Shepard Fairey’s work has been transformed into a virtual reality experience. experience his most ambitious show to date, aptly titled DAMAGED.

In this unprecedented political climate, Fairey’s message has changed from hope to purpose: “DAMAGED is an honest diagnosis, but diagnosis is the first step to recognising and solving problems. I definitely think that art can be part of the solution because it can inspire people to look at an issue they might otherwise ignore or reject.”

Review: For those who don’t know who he is ‘Shepard Fairey’ is an American contemporary street artist which most famous work of art was the one with the wording “HOPE” under a picture of the 44th U.S. President Barack Obama. This is a VR art show of his works so unless you have some interest in ARt or the man himself there really isn’t much point you downloading this. But for those who do try it out you are in for a real treat as this is not only a very well made app, but it also has over 100 minutes of exclusive narration by Shepard Fairey himself. Is this worth the money? I would say it easily is, but then again I like my art and I understand why you might not feel the same way.
