"Shepard’s images of us are done so well.
It’s not easy to get to the essence and Shepard has honed his powers to
perfection. I’ve also always loved doing collages and inking. For
Shepard’s image background, I only used Destroy All Monsters or Dark
Carnival’s real press & vintage flyers. I just grabbed a couple
handfuls & combed through, cut out, glued down and passed out.
For our portraits in 'Let There Be Dark,' I thought Ron & I
should be live-action onstage. I painted ourselves on canvas in black
and silver (silver paint & silver metal leaf.) I closely recreated
of a photo of myself. Ron’s image is a composite of photos and memories.
It is as close to reality as it had been onstage. Just the facts." - Niagara
"For my addition to Niagara’s art, I riffed upon newspaper headlines and punk flyers with my own pattern elements woven in as well. To me, punk has always been about provocation and an ability to work both inside and outside the framework of mass culture. I love Niagara’s subversive sense of humor, so I did my best Niagara impersonation with the fake newspaper headline ‘Let There Be Dark.’" - Shepard Fairey
