Icons is ‘a day’ and ‘the life’ of today’s maverick entrepreneurs, entertainers, and pop culture institutions. They make, break or rewrite the rules for everyone and everything that follows. Icons gives viewers a true inside look at what makes their heroes tick.

“Keep your eyes and mind open, and question everything” is the motto that artist, activist and pop culture pioneer Shepard Fairey lives by. While he was a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, 19
year old Fairey began plastering images of wrestler Andre the Giant on any surface he could find. Almost 20 years later that image has become known around the world and is the foundation of the phenomenon called Obey Giant.
