Shepard Fairey, Oslo Memorial

After visiting Copenhagen a few days ago, popular propaganda artist Shepard Fairey continues his Scandinavia tour and recently arrived in Oslo. To honour the victims of the terror of July 22, his staff created a huge memorial mural at Kirkeveien 59 communicating peace in bold letters!

I don’t know whether it’s good being reminded of that tragedy every single day by a huge memorial, but detached from that Shepard Fairey established with that massive paste-up mural a new attraction in the city of Oslo.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find yet a proper photo without scaffolding. This will be given later…
