Published concurrently with his upcoming 20 year retrospective at the ICA, the special edition of Supply & Demand has been
“Updated and expanded to a massive 500 pages, with all the latest artwork from the Nighteeneightyfouria exhibition of 2007, plus Fairey’s work in support of the US presidential candidate Barack Obama – Supply and Demand is the book that finally does justice to Shepard Fairey’s entire body of work, a massive retrospective covering 20 years of this groundbreaking artist’s prodigious output.”
Putting his design skills to good use once again, Shepard Fairey has created a compliment to his Progress/Hope Obama prints for Adopt a Pet. The print of this will be released some time in January and all of the proceeds “will go to getting the furry non-partisan U.S. residents, who share our country, saved and into homes”. The image is downloadable as well and more information can be found at Mutts Like Me
Even Saks is getting into the game.
““What we do every day, really, is propaganda,” said Terron E. Schaefer, the senior vice president for marketing at Saks.”
The first 1000 are signed and numbered and sold out. Numbers 1001 – 9999 are only numbered and $100. Pretty cool looking with the Capitol Building and The White House and Obama and the Inaugural Seal and the ‘V’ for Victory… Maybe all of the money generated from this can go to a People’s Bailout?
This lofts owners lived near the E Pluribus Venom show and definitely bought a couple pieces. A nice touch to a sick, million dollar loft. 30 Main Street
A great way to close 2008. Releasing for the first time to the States tomorrow is the print set that accompanied Shepard Fairey’s redesign of the covers to the classic George Orwell novels 1984, and Animal Farm. The set will be $140 and very limited. As always, buy it on Obey Giant.
