Frank Shepard Fairey is a contemporary artist, graphic designer, illustrator and even DJ who emerged from the skateboarding scene. He's also a very prominent street artist, or a street vandal as the police would call him, having arrested him several times. But he's "one street vandal who has made good" as quoted by New York Times.

E Pluribus Venom is actually the name of the art show Sheppard Fairey held in late June 2007 in at the Jonathan LeVine gallery in New

You know Shepard Fairey, you just don’t know that you do. He created that stencil-like photo of President Obama with words “Hope” or “Progress” under it. Yep, that’s him.

Featured within this book are a number of complicated designs based around a similar faux-stencil style. There are shots from different gallery showings as well as street shots of his art in the wild. Not much text but worth repeated looks.
There's so much more to Fairey than Andre and Obama, and this beautifully presented tome shows that in spades.
