Art + Interiors: MAKE ART NOT WAR [Shepard Fairey]

Today I am inspired by art for a cause, namely the works of renowned street artist Shepard Fairey. Fairey's works put a modern artistic spin on propaganda, delivering peaceful sentiments with rebellious undertones. Mainly sticking to a black, white and red palette his pieces are hard to miss and never fail to make an impact.

"Nothing splendid was ever created in cold blood. Heat is required to forge anything. Every great accomplishment is the story of a flaming heart."

I'm such a fan of The Make Art Not War poster and the way he uses decorative motifs and bold contrasts for a heavy impact. Red being one of the most energizing and passionated colors in the spectrum I can't help but use the palette for a room that would be sure to light a fire in you and have your creative juices flowing...Enjoy!!
