A Fairey in Union Square

I just found out that the new mural in Union Square was done by artist Shepard Fairey, who did the vote poster, the Obama Hope poster, and is well know for his Obey Giant stickers. The mural is on Somerville Ave, on the side of Grand. Here is an interesting interview with Shepard in SuperTouch. I love the small Fairey sticker(s?) on the emergency box nearby. The piece is a great addition to the area. He is going to have a show at the ICA, which I want to check out when it opens.
