I love his work, but I hate it at the same time.
took credit for images that photographers took and
trade mark the style that was suppose to be a universal tool
for propaganda posters as his own. Now if I try to make propaganda poster on
illustrator or photoshop, it would be label as an Obey influenced work.
I like the business side where he took something not trade marked and claimed it as his own to make millions. Anything about making it in this world I agree. I think I would at least own one print of his work. I think if he gave credit to photographers, I would have more respect for the guy.

My impression was that he took a "stock" image and transformed it the % required to make it his own work. I don't think he ever claimed he took the picture and he gave credit for it when asked.
Did he trade mark the style or did the media begin to label the style he used?
For some reason I don't get the impression he is an asshole stealing things and taking undue credit. I see him more as someone trying to make a difference through his art and the fame he has. Again I don't follow him much and only have a few bits of clothing, but that is my 2cents.---------

Nothing wrong with what Shepard is doing, it's artistic license. The fact that AP sued him, and was able to settle out of court is a joke in my opinion.
The fact is, if his HOPE poster didn't become the icon of the Obama campaign, no one would have cared. Guess the AP wanted their slice of the pie.

He took a stock snapshot and turned it into a propaganda masterpiece for Obama...
also he made Andre's face famous, and his "posse" is now his following in the after life.
So I think the contributions he's made to culture make him very noteworthy.

I'm a huge fan of Obey. I thought Exit through the gift shop was excellent.
I really want to buy an original Banksy print... Just need a spare couple grand.
