Check It. Mark Mothersbaugh and Shepard Fairey at Subliminal Projects.

I know Mark Mothersbaugh's name primarily as the original composer for many of Wes Anderson's films. But he is actually probably more known as the frontman for Devo (yep, that one), and he also happens to be an artist.

That art will now be on display alongside street artist Shepard Fairey, who came to worldwide fame with his Obama Hope poster in 2008. The exhibition is called The Big Picture, and focuses on the two's work as artists and philanthropists. Look for more of Fairey's bold, striking works -- he's long been known for his OBEY giants and propaganda-like art. Mothersbaugh's work is described as being postcard-size illustrations that, when enlarged into a bigger format, become a whimsical and detailed world. The two are being honored for their dedication to children's charity The Art of Elysium.

The Big Picture is showing now until February 19 at the Subliminal Projects gallery, located at 1331 W. Sunset Blvd. in Echo Park (by Dodger Stadium).
