Remax on Shepard Fairey: "Andre the Giant Has a Posse" (…OBEY…) sticker campaign and muses: The story of Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe is one many know. The two artists were viewed as misfits who found each other. Together they created art that help mold and influence an entire movement. Mapplethorpe the photographer and Smith the singer songwriter and poet found each other in a world where everyone was against them, and even after Mapplethorpe discovered his homosexuality the two were inseparable. Smith and Mapplethorpe were each other’s muses and best friends. They motivated each other through the ’60s and ’70s in New York City, through the City Punk Rock movement. Smith even wrote a book inspired by Mapplethorpe entitled Just Kids. Source: The Richest: The 10 Most Iconic Muses in the Art World
