Shepard Fairey Tuesday: “A very different kind of portrait”

Wendy Wick Reaves, curator at the National Portrait Gallery, breaks down Shepard Fairey’s Obama Hope piece in this new video from the National Portrait Gallery. I would’ve never thought of Oriental Orange as a color until now. Wendy could tuck me in and describe all the artwork on my walls to me nightly. You go curator lady!  Now to whoever did the camerawork and editing, better luck next time.

Shepard Fairey Tuesday: Obey Windmill for Green Energy Initiatives

shepard-fairey-obey-windmill-green-energy-initiative

Wind Farms, the future of America. Is harvesting energy from the air we breathe going to be the answer?  Only time will tell but, I’ll put some cheddar on it.  Shepard Fairey’s latest print Obey Windmill, was created “with the hope that it will be part of some Green Energy Initiatives in the near future.”  Whatever the case, it is nice shift towards fine(r) art, especially with the lack of Obey branding anywhere. Available today, June 3oth at a random time.  Edition of 450, 18″ x 24″ signed and numbered.  $45

This Flower Vine print by Shepard Fairey will be available today in three colorways (black/white, red/white, red/black).

On a side note, I would like to see Shepard Fairey’s Obey Brand venture into the home.  You know like pillows, sheet sets, duvets, curtains, picnic baskets, wallpaper etc…maybe even custom paint colors?  Flat black paint with black gloss stencils.  Some lucrative shit for sure.
