wouldthatitweresosimpleI started out looking for examples of Shepherd Fairey that resemble Ainu owl pattern. That digressed into Shepherd and t-shirts for Bernie Sanders, then to excellent mark fallen Vallon critique of Fairey, then to Prince and Krantz.

Ainu are an ethnic group in Japan, subject of a talk yesterday at the DeYoug AOA by Chisoto, and I actually tried to explain this to her

edit to add: and yeah that i’m referencing the DeYoung, Shepherd Fairey and Coen Brothers simultaneously is a direct rip off of Errol Morris “Fast Cheap and Out of Control”
