Friendship and Support by Shepard Fairey (@obeygiant). A tribute to the legacy of George Harrison and the very first major music concert for a cause "The Concert for Bangladesh". 18"x24" screen print, 2011.
Afrocentric (Black), Screen Print on paper, 18 x 24 inches, 2007, Shepard Fairey.
Always been a big fan of Fairey's work. I remember reading Juxtapose Magazine (before children era). He was talking about being scared of putting his work into galleries. I remember thinking isn't that funny, I was scared about putting my work onto the street. At the time I was dreaming of doing gorilla street art. I chickened out. And here he is a very respected artist. I have always admired his sense of Justice. I wonder if he is a dog (Chinese zodiac). Xx #artist#shepardfairey#justice#yearofthedog#juxtaposemagazine
Screen printing is an art form in and of itself, with trial and error (test printing), repetition and discovery at its core. Given the manual nature of traditional screen printing, no two screen prints are exactly alike. Here we have a few “test” prints from my collection by Shepard Fairey @obeygiant from the mid to late 2000s. Swipe to see all the images. I don’t believe that the first pattern has ever been commercially released. The subsequent images are both sides of Tyrant Boot (2008) and Molotov Man (2006). Look up the prints online if you’re curious about the differences.
