Check out these photos of Shepard Fairey's mural in progress


A couple weeks ago, we reported that Shepard Fairey would be painting the largest mural in Detroit to date. We got word last weekend that the artist had gotten down to business on the absolutely enormous piece, so we sent our plucky photo intern Rebecca Gallagher out to snap a few shots of the mural in progress. 
Gallagher captured Fairey on the backside of Bedrock Ventures' and Meridian Health's recently jointly-acquired Compuware Building, working away at the red, yellow, black, and white design. 

It seems Dan Gilbert is only a fan of certain kinds of graffiti
