Recap: “Facing the Giant: Three Decades of Dissent” in Grenoble, France!

June 17, 2019

I just completed my “Rose Girl” mural in Grenoble, France as part of the Grenoble Street Art Fest. The mural is in a very busy part of town with student housing and the Alps as the backdrop. I could not ask for a better location! The “Rose Girl” is a symbol of peace and harmony with fellow humans and the earth. Grenoble has been making strides toward ecological responsibility, and I hope my mural can be a visual companion to the efforts toward sustainability. Thank you to my crew of Dan Flores, Nicholas Bowers, and Rob Zagula for helping me complete the mural even working through the rain the first day! Thank you also to Jerome Catz and Michael Foley and the Grenoble Street Art Fest Team for their efforts to promote my art and ideas in Grenoble. And of course, thank you to Jon Furlong for the photos!

As part of the 30-year anniversary project, the “Facing the Giant: 3 Decades of Dissent” series will be on view with a larger print survey titled “Obey: 30 Years of Resistance” at Grenoble Street Art Fest, featuring more than 600 prints from Shepard’s career. On view from June 6th to October 27th, 2019 in Grenoble, France. Visit: for more details.
