LINK: Mark Vallen: Obey Plagiarist Shepard Fairey
I"m a fan of Shepard Fairey, so I am no doubt biased. But, I don't see why it strikes anyone as surprising that Fairey uses other people's imagery in his work. via JeffCroft.com Journal

Mark Vallen is simply trying to jumpstart his go-nowhere career by bashing someone who actually HAS one. It's a time-honored tradition among the second-rate and failing. The fact that he passed out literature-- including HIS OWN ART-- amongst those standing in line at Fairey's show ought to tell you he's simply an opportunist out to raise his own profile. If he were truly interested in constructive dialogue he would have picked up the phone and made the local call to Fairey to ask him about it. Then, if he wasn't satisfied with the answers-- or at least wanted to include them-- he could have offered up the other side of the coin. Instead, he posted a shrill call of "Look at Me!" in hopes of selling a few more canvases of his Jr. High caliber artwork. Pretty sad, really.

Con-men that lift other people's artwork should not be idolized. Only stupid ignorant people would follow this Obey movement.
