The art world's power couple: Jeff Koons & Shepard Fairey... 

In NYC as a featured speaker at the media symposium announcing the launch of GOOGLE's new iGoogle artist themes last week, Supertouch's own SHEPARD FAIREY shared the stage with none other than mega artstar JEFF KOONS. In case you've been living under a rock, Google's new themes for personalizing the interactive iGoogle page include imagery and gadgets by Lance Armstrong, Shepard Fairey, Hysteric Glamour's Nobu Kitamura, A Bathing Ape's Nigo, Jeff Koons, The Beastie Boys, and the Rolling Stone's Ronnie Wood to name a few. In other SHEPARD FAIREY news, it seems our boy wasn't content tackling the realms of popular culture and politiks with his trademark neo-constructivist artwork and has moved on to the canon of modern literature by redesigning the covers of author GEORGE ORWELL's legendary novels of doom and paranoia, "1984," and "Animal Farm." Damn, kids are spoiled these days...
