Shepard Fairey @ Deitch Projects

Shepard Fairey, the man who brought you this now iconic and historic poster of President Obama, is having a one man show at Deitch Projects tonight.
Unlike any opening some of us are used to seeing, Deitch has the artist signing special edition posters during the day. People came out in masses today in Soho for this special occasion.
To the luck of these people, the sun was out and heat of spring was not too bad for a little waiting in line.
The line young crowd, most in their twenties, wrapped around the corner of Wooster and Grand streets.

At some point in the afternoon things got a little too crazy, the number of people attending the show was so large that the party spilled on to the street.
Many were not able to get in and were forced to see the show from afar in the street or even worse, from across the street.
Below is a video of Mr. Fairey at work.
