LOS ANGELES, CA.- Shepard Fairey, one of today's most influential street artists, is auctioning off an intimate tour of his Los Angeles studio for a lucky fan.

The winner will also receive a suite of 5 pro-peace signed screen prints, each 18" x 24".

Bidding is open through August 25 on charitybuzz, the leading destination for online charity auctions, here:

Shepard Fairey emerged from the skateboarding scene in the '90s, becoming well-known for his "Andre the Giant Has a Posse" sticker campaign and "OBEY" street art movement. More than a decade later, he reached worldwide recognition after creating the iconic Obama Hope, Change, Progress prints used during the 2008 presidential election.
