For some, this graffiti artist is one of the most important pop artists of our times. For others, he is a vandal with a criminal record that includes at least a dozen arrests.
Remember the Obama Hope Poster? It's creator is Shepard Fairey. He usually omits his first name.
You still don't remember him? Boston police does: They arrested him again on Friday while he was on his way to an event where he was the star.
Fairey is also facing the Associated Press on allegations of copyright infrigement on the memorable Obama poster.
Graffiti haters around the world think his "Andre the Giant has a Posse" stenciled icon is a nightmare.
What makes Fairey special is that he can create icons that spread around the world like viral stickers. For some the symbols are vandalism, for others it's art.
