Fairey was born in Charleston in the 1970’s and started his artistic career by working in street art (Novak). One of his first forays into street art was the Andre the Giant sticker which was made in response to a friend saying that Andre the Giant was not cool and not worth making a stencil of. The stickers became widely popular and ended up everywhere, stuck to everywhere in sight, and eventually Fairey expanded his outreach by making larger and larger versions of the Andre the Giant stencil, most with the word “OBEY” underneath his face. In the Bansky film “Exit through the Gift Shop” Fairey says that the whole point of the “OBEY” series was to show the power of repetition, stating that the more the artwork was seen made people question what its meaning was.

The meme is funny because he was so excited to take a selfie with Justin Timberlake and probably had no idea who he was because of his age. After a few days people who were creating the memes shifted from Justin to regular every day sayings and problems. One of the other memes was his mom texting him that the pizza rolls were done and that he had to leave the super bowl to go eat.

There I was again, having an app idea but no motivation to learn how to code. As you may have guessed, I found a video tutorial online by XDA Developers and I started on my journey but failed once again.
