SHEPARD FAIREY EARTH DAY PRINTS: HELPING OR PROFITING?

This Earth Day, Shepard Fairey’s creative agency and design studio, Studio Number One, produced a series of prints to bring attention to climate change and the actions needed to mitigate it. These blue-toned prints focus on issues prevalent in California and incorporates the phrase “This is Not a Test” as a hopeful call to action to convince people that now is the time to save the future through our actions today.

Besides producing these prints Shepard Fairey also gave a presentation at SXSW Eco last year and hosted an exhibition at the Eiffel Tower for the COP21 conference in 2015.

Shepard Fairey is doing a great job at creating awareness but is it enough? Is he doing is fair part in combating climate change (by donating money raised to climate change organizations) or is he using climate change to profit?
