Make Art Not War

The Palazzo Medici-Riccardi  is one of many stunning palaces to enjoy in Florence and was once the workplace of revered artists such as Donatello, Michelangelo and Botticelli.  There are numerous examples of their stunning  masterpieces throughout the palace, however, at the opposite end of the spectrum there was an example of the ‘modern’ in the way of an exhibition ‘Make Art Not War’  by Obey aka Shepard Fairey.   Fairey is a renowned American street artist who lives and works in Los Angeles, Calafornia.  The exhibition is dedicated to the four themes of woman, environment, peace and culture; it features both large and small scale works which envelop his humanitarian, social and environmentalist ideals.
