Also, they sell his art as wall decals on Amazon... I work in licensing and I find it extremely hard to believe that Amazon would sell copyrighted artwork like that. Unless to you decals are not part of "selling out". And I don't think anything is wrong with commissioned walls! I think they are great! Go Shepard Fairey!

Of course I have seen the humorous documentary one thousand times before. First of all, his work is not copyrighted. Second, he doesn’t do commissioned walls. And I find it hard to believe that he sells stuff on Amazon, he has other ways to get funded (he did some exhibitions, produced Exit Through the Gift Shop and did and intro for The Simpsons).
