Street Art in Music Videos: Shepard Fairey's Work Featured in "Money" by N.A.S.A.
Graffiti and hip-hop have long had close ties, but the selection of Shepard Fairey’s street art in the “Money” music video for N.A.S.A. gives this pairing a decidedly highbrow edge.
We’ve covered a wide variety of Shepard Fairey’s work at LoveThatTune. As you’ll recall, he was the artist that designed the infamous Obama “Hope” posters and “Obey” guerrilla campaign. The music video for N.A.S.A.’s “Money” uses Shepard Fairey’s work throughout.
N.A.S.A. is a collaboration between Squeak E. Clean and DJ Zegon; the acronym stands for “North America, South America.” Other artists featured in “Money” include David Byrne, Chuck D, Ras Congo, Seu Jorge, and Z-Trip, according to Chunnel. The video was directed by Syd Garon and Paul Griswold.
