Shepard Fairey has landed in Europe and his first stop in Munich, Germany where he just finished working on this new piece.
Invited by the guys at Positive Propaganda, the American muralist brought to life this signature piece entitled “Paint it Black”.

When I was working on the Paint it Black concept I tried several approaches, as I do with every poster, but instead of only one successful direction, I felt I found two solutions for Paint it Black. Both versions are inspired by the Rolling Stones song, but the first version was fashioned more after a vintage newspaper ad, while the Paint it Black Hand has a bit more of a propaganda feel. Regardless, they are both about oil dictating too much of our energy policy and our foreign policy. –Shepard Fairey

Hit the jump for a bunch of extra images and if you stop by Munich, you’ll be able to find it on Landshuter Allee 54.
