Diggin’ through some files, I found an entire folder from Shepard Fairey’s E Pluribus Venom show at Jonathan Levine’s temporary Dumbo Space. Big ups to Stevie T who took the flicks, we may have to put him back on…Once again, Hot Chicks at Art Openings.

Noreaga, SuperThug (produced by The Neptunes), 1998
The date has been set and rumor has it, that the work is as massive as a stampede of horses.
This is an online auction, real easy. One question though, are there any artists who aren’t for Obama?
At least that is what Gizmodo thinks. Fuck the Rain Umbrella, by Artemy Lebedev, our favorite Russian designer. Fuck the rain, or fuck the Google satellites. I guess it’s telling someone to Fuck off. Buy it now

Kaws and Marc Jacobs collaborated and designed patent leather Mouse Flats to celebrate the brands 10th anniversary. Limited to 200 pairs worldwide. Colette (Paris), OriginalFake (Tokyo) and Marc Jacobs flagship stores (US and London) will be the only stores that will carry these. Something for the ladies from KAWS.
Dave Kinsey has a new print available from Studio Cromie in conjunction with his appearance at the FAME Festival. Coming off in an edition of 75 in two colorways, it is a nice return to Kinsey’s simpler work.
Check out WOWCH T’s. They have been ripped off by Urban Outfitters, but does it matter? They are hipster trendy but, I like this one for some reason.
Since we’re creeping into October, it would be good to mention to anybody living in DC that Shepard will be participating in a group show at Irvine Contemporary on the 18th. Regime Change Starts At Home features the work of Shepard Fairey, Al Farrow, and Paul D. Miller otherwise known as DJ Spooky. For the collector, a special print will be created for the show and those in attendance will be able to see the last Obama Portrait from the edition of 3 . Press release after the jump.
Beastie Boys, Sabotage, 1994
The full story on this is fuzzy (my German being nil), but what I gather is this. Brad Downey was invited by Department Store KaDeWe to do some sort of window installation for Lacoste’s 70th anniversary. He took ‘window installation’ literally and ran a great extinguisher line down the front of the department store. Genius!
Continuing with the high art meets street culture infusion, Supreme will introduce their latest skateboard deck collaboration this Thursday with some nice looking decks by Christopher Wool. The decks will look awesome hung together in a stark white room.
