Shepard Fairey’s 20 year ICA Retro Series fine art print Set

shepard-fairey-ica-retro-series

These large format fine art prints are banging!  Available first as a set, then later as individuals.

“This large format print series was created to commemorate the 20 year anniversary of OBEY.  The series was first released in Feb but only to a selected few for the opening of Shepard’s 20 year Retrospective at the ICA Boston.  Shepard chose to revisit these images, from the 98 – 2000 era, due to their popularity but adding a more refined look to them with the replace of the OBEY Orange for a Metallic Gold.  This fine art print series will go sale on 4/2/09 at noon.  The series will initially go on sale only as a set with a few individual prints sold separately later in the day.”

Has anybody used one of these?  We are putting out some TWBE gear for the warm weather and I’m trying to sort out if we should go the traditional screenprint way or get 21st century…

Seriously, as a large, vinyl sculpture it would have been dope.  Scale it down to apartment living material, meh.

To put it modestly, Margaret Kilgallen’s influence in art has been far reaching. In the most recent scanned issue from Juxtapoz’s archive there is a great profile of her as well as the added bonus of artists Walton Ford, Winston Smith, and the Clayton Brothers.

it’s all in the paper

paperbag

Papier (= paper), is designed by Stefan Diez for Saskia Diez. The bags are made out of a material named Tyvek, which is a synthetic paper made from PE that is extremely tearproof, lightweight, waterproof and recyclable. Really nice looking after some wear and tear.

Shepard Fairey Tuesday: Defend Equality Merch

shepard-fairey-obey-dogjpg

Help raise awareness for the fight to overturn prop. 8 by visiting the F.A.I.R. Love Unites store and purchasing one of the many items available.  It could be a dog t-shirt, some greeting cards, a mouse pad, maybe even a sweatshirt or t-shirt.  Whatever it may be…

“The money raised at this store goes directly back into the fight for marriage equality. When you buy a Shepard Fairey shirt from our store you’re not just showing your support for marriage equality, you’re catapulting our movement forward and getting us one step closer to reclaiming our fundamental civil rights.”
