Back in LA working in the studio for something coming in 2019... stay tuned! - Shepard
I had an incredible time last week at the @hublot dinner party in Miami for the launch of my limited edition watch. My friends @marthacoopergram, @tristaneaton, and @JuxtapozMag’s @epricco and I had a lively discussion about art, provocation and inspiration. Working with #Hublot has allowed me to explore my art in a different medium, while keeping fuction and material in mind. Special thanks to @hublot, @hublot_northamerica, and @jfsberro for the partnership and the amazing night! - Shepard #hublot #hublotlovesart #obey #obeygiant #miamiartweek #shepardfairey

REVS and COST were a big inspiration for me because they were graffiti guys who started doing paste-ups, and their coverage of New York City was unbelievable. At first, I assumed that "REVS and COST" was some sort of political thing, because it was so pervasive that I never would have thought it was possible for just two guys to be doing it. The images of mine that are below theirs are two 11" x 17" Xeroxes, just some images I came up with to be run through a copier with red and black toner. I wanted to express how I was inspired by them and how I progressed in that same direction. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From the archives: Soho NYC, 1996 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #streetart #revsandcost
My Fishtown Philadelphia Lotus mural is finally coming down after 4 years as the building is being demolished. I actually love the way it looks like an old ripped poster. The decay of art on the streets is an inherent part of its charm. I’ll paint more murals in Philly at some point. Thanks to Philadelphia Mural Arts for getting me the spot! - Shepard 📷: @fishtownhappenings ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #streetart #mural #fishtown #philadelphia

I'm always trying to find ways to give back, and it's great to know that TODAY is dedicated to helping others, although we should strive to give back every day. For #GivingTuesday, I'd like to highlight two of many organizations that I support. I made this art earlier this year for @homeboyindustries; with it I tried to convey Father Greg’s vision, as well as the love, trust, and camaraderie that exemplify the culture of Homeboy. I’m incredibly inspired by Father Greg Boyle who’s spirit and dedication have helped to build an ecosystem that gives opportunities to people who frequently find doors closed elsewhere. The pride people feel at Homeboy is palpable and this artwork is meant to illustrate the power of support, healing, and redemption. Join me in supporting @HomeboyIndustries today, as they seek to reach their goal of raising $50,000 to serve people looking for a second chance at life! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @myfriendsplace is a nonprofit drop-in resource center in Hollywood offering a comprehensive continuum of care, health, educational, and therapeutic services to more than 1,400 youth experiencing homelessness and their children each year. Until November 30, all donations to their SHIFT Program will be doubled! With your support, we can provide young people with vital tools to improve their situations and exit out of homelessness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Visit the link in bio to donate to both @homeboyindustries and @myfriendsplace. Thanks for caring! – Shepard
Remembering my DAMAGED exhibition last year, which was a reflection on the state of politics, media, human rights, and the global approach to the environment. #DAMAGED is an honest diagnosis, but diagnosis is the first step to recognizing and solving problems. I definitely think that art can be part of the solution because it can inspire people to look at an issue they might otherwise ignore or reject. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #throwback
It's hard to believe that #DAMAGED, my largest solo fine art exhibition, was already a year ago. Here's a photo from when Henry Rollins @henryandheidi stopped by. The show was super ambitious and I can't thank @librarystreetcollective enough! If you missed seeing the art when it was on view, be sure to experience the show through my new VR/AR experience, #DAMAGEDApp. – Shepard
EARTH CRISIS ORNAMENT AVAILABLE NOW! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ EARTH CRISIS GLOBE ORNAMENT. 3" diameter glass ornament. Comes with sticker pack. $22. Available Friday, November 23rd @ 12AM (PDT) on ObeyGiant.com in Store under Collectibles. Max order: 1 per customer/household. Multiple orders will be refunded. International customers are responsible for import fees due upon delivery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The “EARTH CRISIS GLOBE” is a mandala designed to provide a unified ornamental structure that evokes floral motifs and harmony with nature. Housed within the mandala’s shields are images that symbolize both threats to nature and urges to respect it. I created this art for the massive EARTH CRISIS GLOBE installation in the Eiffel Tower in 2015 leading up to the COP21 Climate Summit in Paris. The images I placed in the mandala are climate change and environmentally themed graphics I have created in recent years to raise awareness and provoke discussions about the earth’s future. I used colors in the globe design that connect with the blue and green of air, water, vegetation that allow the earth to sustain life. It was exciting to showcase these works in this form, to allow for different experiences for viewers from a distance and up close while living in the heart of the Eiffel Tower. I’m now releasing this ornament replica of that globe, and I hope the “EARTH CRISIS GLOBE” still appeals visually and continues to generate much-needed conversations about the fate of our planet during the holidays and beyond. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #earthcrisis #holiday #ornament #blackfriday
