Shepard is the most prolific street artists in the world. Fairey grew up with many things that influenced his artworks and creativity, these were things such as; skateboarding, hip hop and punk/rock. These things influenced Fairey to produce his first well known artwork in 1989.

Shepard Fairey first believed that he wouldn’t be able to go very far in this career as he was white, and didn’t come from the Bronx, but one of the things that influenced him was the movie “they live”, he was so influenced by this movie because of how much it was against advertising.
Warhol’s contributions to film, music, and art revolutionized the underground world and were soon exposed to mainstream pop culture, thus making these categories vital in the amalgamation of underground and pop culture. Although he is probably least recognized for his role as a director, Warhol was quite successful in filmmaking during the 1960s, directing more than sixty films within that decade. The jump from painting to directing was not a random move, but a plan strategically thought out. The value of Warhol’s pieces were rising steadily, but they were still low: Bockris (2003. p.224.)
Whilst artists of the Renaissance and Reformation were oftentimes commissioned by popes and aristocrats and thus sought to depict overt, beautiful pictures of glory, and artists of the late 19th century received money from their followers and thus sought to depict society in its bleak truth, both attempted to influence their audience through messages found solely in art. The Renaissance period was in many ways a golden age for art. With the rise of the nation-state, rulers began to see the value of art as a powerful means of persuasion. Most artists received their commissions from aristocrats and popes attempting to intimidate, impress, and enchant their visitors, and from such an influence arose the baroque style of art: highly overt, colorful, and glorious. Artists such as Michelangelo, who received generous commissions from Pope Julius II, created such splendid, ethereal, and religious works as David and the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel as a way to impress and captivate followers of the Catholic Church (and, undoubtedly, as a means to intimidate followers of the Protestant Reformation).

Richard Hamilton’s Pop Art painting, Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing? and Jan Van Eyck’s Arnolfini’s Northern Renaissance, Wedding portrait both possess prominent characteristics of their time, place, and artistic movement. Pop Art is art that reflects through images and products, items of a popular culture. The Northern Renaissance period had a fundamental aspect which was the fondness for meticulous rendering of details which is clearly shown in Arnolfini’s painting. These two paintings were made in different periods in Art History but they made a big impact in their time.
