Earlier this year, Shepard Fairey's design agency, Studio Number One, his company Obey Giant Art Inc. and his gallery co-owned with his wife, Subliminal Projects, moved operations into Echo Park on Sunset Blvd. (see the photos of them putting up huge Obama posters here). This Saturday, the new space's first exhibition features Parisian stencil and street art pioneer, Blek le Rat, who is an influence on street art favorite -- Banksy.

The show will be Blek le Rat's first in the United States. Saturday's opening is from 8-11 p.m. Subliminal Projects Gallery is at 1331 W. Sunset Blvd. Blek has been in town and below you can see what he's been doing around Los Angeles:
