Obey: Supply & Demand, The Art of Shepard Fairey – 20th Anniversary Edition expands upon the previous version of this book and adds 100 new pages of illustrations and text to showcase Fairey’s extensive body of work, a massive retrospective covering 20 colourful years.
This massive book pulls no punches and all areas of artist’s work, travels and travails are illuminated. From exhibitions, posters, flyers, silkscreens and stickers to high altitude pursuits, citations and police beatings, it’s all documented in a museum quality layout and binding.
Through the lens of esteemed writers and critics such as Carlo McCormick, Steven Heller, Henry Rollins, Rob Walker, Roger Gastman and more, readers learn about Shepard Fairey, the roots of the omnipresent OBEY street art campaign, his design practice and prolific gallery exhibitions. Also featured are artworks in diverse mediums ranging from album covers (including the recently released Led Zeppelin compilation Mothership), to skateboards and T-shirts.
