With one look around the grimy, hippie and gutter punk-laden streets of San Francisco even a school librarian could tell that Supertouch's own SHEPARD FAIREY was in town by the sheer volume of ugly wrestler mugs staring down from the forest of equally unpolished buildings. The occasion (besides wanton acts of vandalism—neé "Street Art," that is?)? Shep's new anti-war solo show, "The Duality of Humanity," opening Saturday, September 13th at JUSTIN GIARLA's acclaimed WHITE WALLS GALLERY. Looking to buy? The best stuff's already gone. But the waiting list is accepting names. HAVE A LOOK: Read More

Aptly titled "Cannibal Carnival," and set to open this Saturday, August 16, the show of new paintings and other grisly surprises represents the young demon's best work yet, and we're especially happy with his new "evil clown" theme.
