Shepard Fairey x The Simpsons

Share This:

Purists will argue that The Simpsons has lost its way slightly over the last few seasons, but here at size? it is still a firm on-the-box favourite and a show where the constant cultural relativity cannot be queried. The latter of which is evident with the apperance of OBEY founder and world famous street artist Shepard Fairey making an appearance in a recent episode.


The episode will be aired very soon, but a quick synopsis can be seen below:

Episode 15 Series 23 – “Exit Though The Kwik-E-Mart” will be aired in the US on March 4th.

In order to get back at his dad, Bart goes undercover as a graffiti street artist and plasters Homer’s unflattering image all over Springfield. But one night, Bart and Milhouse get caught in the act by established street artists Shepard Fairey, Ron English, Kenny Scharf and Robbie Conal (guest voicing as themselves), and to Bart’s surprise, they invite him to exhibit his satirical artwork in his very own gallery show. Meanwhile, a hip, new health food superstore opens in Springfield that threatens to put Apu and the Kwik-E-Mart out of business.
