Category: Features

The Los Angeles home of artist Shepard Fairey is going on the market for $1.84 million, according to real-estate agent Patricia Ruben of Sotheby’s International Realty.

The Mediterranean-style home, built in the 1920s, has four bedrooms and measures roughly 2,500 square feet, Ms. Ruben said. Mr. Fairey, 45, and his wife purchased the Los Feliz home in 2005 for $1.37 million, according to public records. They added a terraced yard with an outdoor kitchen and planted a number of camellia bushes on the property, which measures about 8,000 square feet, Ms. Ruben said.

Mr. Fairey, who is best known for his 2008 “Hope” portrait of then presidential candidate Barack Obama, often worked in his bedroom in the home, according to a spokesperson for the artist. The house also has a two-car garage which Mr. Fairey used as a studio, Ms. Ruben said, noting that paper sketches are still tacked to the wall in the space.
