OBEY Giant, Shepard Fairey

“I sympathize with the struggles of humanity. I consistently create art for, and financially support causes fighting injustice. I understand frustration with “the system” and the challenges of life in general, but I never see justification for fighting injustice by perpetuating more injustice.”

Just touching lightly upon the subject of Shepard Fairey and how he produces such impressive standards of work. Revolutionising the way that many in various fields now view design, often using Fairey as a influence and inspiration in all that they produce. So to learn more on his processes and path towards manufacturing, I observed the video to become more knowledgeable in his ways and ethics.

I will be revisiting Fairey and his story at a later date, touching both upon his OBEY Giant franchise and the ever successful Hope campaign, the turning points in a skateboarder come street artist life. Later becoming known as the most influential street artist of his time.
