February 11: Shepard Fairey on art, skateboarding and the culture of change in Charleston, S.C.

Redux is a fairy godmother to up-and-coming artists. “Visitors to Charleston who want to see some cool emerging art should check out what Redux is up to,” Shepard said. When I dropped by last month, Redux was up to the surreal riffs of Doug McAbee, a South Carolina artist whose universe is populated by saucer-eyed narwhals and spry skeletons. On Feb. 4, “Studio Union: An Art Junction” opened with pieces by artists who share a creative space in North Charleston, an arrangement similar to Redux’s honeycomb of studios.
