Shepard Fairey and his crew undertook a project called 'Restore Venice' and created multiple works for the SMS Venice Foundation.

Shepard Fairey and Co. donated their work to promote the preservation of the artistic and architectural heritage in the romantic city of Venice, Italy.

The biggest feature is a mural that was placed in the middle of Piazza San Marco.

Implications - Shepard Fairey is a living example that graffiti artists are legit artists. With Fairey and Banksy helping out with charitable events, street art is starting to get a better reputation artistically and charitably. As this medium gains ground, it is likely that brands will begin incorporating it into their marketing plans.
