Lot description
Shepard Fairey's trademark style of bold stencil design and collage is wonderfully represented in this homage to skateboard legend and original Z-Boys team member, Tony Alva. Based on an image of a young Alva, Fairey's monochromatic representation comes alive through subtle layers featuring Fairey’s distinctive patterns and imagery, adding a sense of depth and motion to this unique work on paper. Fairey’s image was also produced as a print in two different colorways, each in an edition of 250, and was released in 2009 to coincide with the opening of ‘The Detournements of Wynn Miller’, an exhibition presented by Tony Alva and Richard Villa III at Exhibit A Gallery, Los Angeles, CA.
