  • His most popular role was Fezzik in the movie The Princess Bride released in 1987.
  • Having created the sticker, Shepard Fairey started a street campaign aimed at reproducing the image as many times and in as many places as possible.
  • Later, his friends joined him.
  • Today, Fairey often publishes an explanation of his message in publications like skateboard and music magazines read mostly by people between 15 and 25.
