Obey Shepard Fairey and Buy His House for $1.84 Million

There’s good money in making posters of Andre the Giant and Barack Obama apparently. Former street artist and now just artist artist Shepard Fairey is selling his house in Los Feliz, California for $1.84 million.

The four bedroom, 3.5 bath Mediterranean style residence was built in 1929. Fairey and his wife bought it in 2005 for $1.37 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Fairey used one of the bedrooms as well as the two-car garage, where remnants of sketches still hang, as studio spaces to create his work. And Sotheby’s International Realty is certainly trying to play up the fact that the artist lived in the home. His artwork features prominently in all the listing’s photos. We’re guessing Fairey isn’t such a narcissist that he hung his own work everywhere and that they were placed there to stage the home. The listing’s description also features some truly horrible puns. The house is said to “tell a story: a language of love and HOPE,” a reference to the Obama “Hope” posters that Fairey made during the 2008 campaign. The house also “delivers magical Los Feliz authenticity and tales, Fairey tales.” Ugh.

You can see more pictures of the home below.
