I’ve collected train and mass transit tickets, as well as books of classic ticket designs, for years. As designed objects, they often have interesting layouts and ornamentation, and are well thought out as communication media. Along with their aesthetic value, they also have an interesting storytelling quality, showing how two places that were once isolated from each other have since become connected, allowing passengers to have their own connections to both places. I wanted to create art around those concepts, and also share a political message about their environmental consequences of air and car travel and the benefits of mass transit. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From the archives: Station to Station 3, 2012 Mixed Media on canvas 40” x 35 1/2” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #archives #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey

As an artist, I understand that no matter how much time I put into a solo exhibition, there is only a finite amount of time that people can experience it in person before it goes away forever. In working with VRt Ventures, I am excited to know that art fans all around the world will be able to experience my largest solo fine art exhibit to-date in a profoundly powerful way through the “DAMAGED” mobile app. Making art accessible is very important to me and I am happy to to work with VRt Ventures who share this philosophy. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “DAMAGED", in partnership with @vrtventures and @juxtapozmag is a VR/AR immersive experience allowing fans to step inside the DAMAGED exhibition. The experience will be available for download today on Oculus, Samsung Gear and Steam in VR, as well as on the iOS App store for Apple mobile devices and on the Google Play store for Android.

Last night I was slated to DJ the VIP kick-off party for David Lynch's @festivalofdisruption, where David’s brand new painting exhibition was on view.

Here is the completed "Fire Sale” mural in #Seattle. This piece is a comment on the challenges any individual faces pushing for environmental and climate responsibility, especially when confronted with the massive power of fossil fuel industries whose short-sighted, profit-driven tactics include lobbying and bribing politicians who are supposed to work for the citizenry. The term “fire sale” means the liquidation of goods damaged in a fire, or it can mean a rush to sell off inventory before a bankruptcy. Thank you to my crew of assistants Nic Bowers, Rob Zagula and Luka Densmore. Thanks @Patrick_J_Foley and everyone at @TheStateHotel and @lakeunionpartners. I’m grateful to have a large mural across from the historic Pike Place Market that is visited by millions of people per year and is one of the first places I did street art in Seattle 20 years ago. Thanks for caring! -Shepard

I produced a limited edition of Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité large format letterpress prints for sale at District 13 Art Fair with Galerie Itinerrance recently. A few remaining prints from the edition are available and we will be offering them in a raffle! The raffle begins at 10am (PDT) Saturday, October 13th. To join the raffle, please go here: https://store.obeygiant.com/products/liberte-egalite-fraternite-letterpress (link will not be live until Saturday, October 13th). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This raffle ends on Monday, October 15th at 11:59pm (PDT). One entry per email. Winners will be selected at random. If you are selected you will be sent an email with a link to purchase. You will have 24 hours to complete your purchase after which another name will be drawn. No Purchase Necessary to enter in this drawing. Good luck! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I created the Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité art piece to show support for France after the Nov. 13, 2015 terror attacks which happened just before the time of my Earth Crisis installation at the Eiffel Tower. The piece was very important to me as a symbol of unity during a dark, tragic moment. I was moved that the art and the message was inspiring for so many people in France, and beyond, and it has remained one of my most requested images since it was first created. I’m excited to be releasing it now as a fine art, large-format letterpress print. The print is the largest letterpress I’ve made, printed by @aardvarkletterpress using the largest impression area available for this type of printing in Los Angeles. The print features red and blue screen-print with a black and blind deboss (inkless impression) letterpress. The prints also feature a hand torn deckled edge. I’m very pleased with the enhanced elegance these techniques lend to this print. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité. 23 x 30 inch large format letterpress. 100% cotton custom archival paper by Legion Paper. Hand torn deckled edges and Obey publishing chop. Signed by Shepard Fairey. Edition of 90. $1,000. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

If you're motivated and willing to take risks, you can take alternate, unsanctioned routes to create some space for your imagery and your ideas. Some of the best spaces to take over are the semi-vacant billboards that don't presently contain advertising, just signage highlighting their availability: "Your ad here." Of course, that's just another ad in and of itself, but if you take the phrase strictly at face value it's a nice invitation. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From the archives: Bayshore Billboard, 2011 Mixed media on canvas 25” x 18” #tbt #obeygiant #obey #shepardfairey

Currently in #Seattle, working on a new mural with my team. Here's a progress shot, hope to share the final soon! - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #mural #streetart #statehotel

I’ve incorporated many different symbols of peace in my work whether it’s a dove or a tree, a peace sign or two fingers, a peace lotus or a peace woman. I am pro-harmony and anti-war, but I am also fascinated by the power of easily recognized and reproduced symbols and I continue to explore various icons and the meanings behind them. Objects that represent peace are often beautiful and inspiring to me. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From the archives: PEACE FINGERS RETIRED STENCIL Retired Stencil & Studies Material Stencil and Mixed Media Collage on Paper E Pluribus Venom 30 x 44 inches 2007

My 2014 “We Own the Future” mural from the Bowery in NYC was facilitated by the L.I.S.A project @thelisaprojectnyc. Some people have asked the question “who is the We in We Own the Future"? I meant “We” as those of us who choose to take action to shape the future. I love The Clash and often reference Joe Strummer’s phrase “the future is unwritten”. “We Own the Future” is meant as a power-to-the-people call to action! Apathy won’t get anyone far. The arrows painted above my mural are by @tavarzawacki AKA ABOVE. -Shepard 📷: @streetartdrone

I have frequently talked about the many problems created by the current campaign finance structure. Corporate donations distort their influence in politics and corrupt our democracy. This is an issue not many Americans seem interested in, but it effects all Americans by ensuring that corporate interests are put before the interests of the average person. Genuine democracy should guarantee that politicians create the greatest good for the greatest number of people, but that idea has eroded with the favors owed by politicians to corporations in exchange for their contributions. I originally created this art for two organizations who are fighting against political corruption and for campaign finance reform, @rootstrikers and @representus. These organizations are doing great work, so please support them! - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From the archives: Shepard Fairey SCALE TIPPING SERVICES RUBYLITH Rubylith Handcut Rubylith Illustration Halsey 11 1/4 x 19 1/4 inches 2014

I created three portraits for @amplifierart's #WeTheFuture campaign - Xiuhtezcatl Martinez @xiuhtezcatl for @Earthguardians, Amanda Nguyen @amandangocnguyen to Rewrite the Law, and @winterbreeanne to bring #PowerToThePolls. #Amplifier is working to get this art out in a way that will reach a critical audience of high school students, prompting them to examine issues, to ask questions about the art and the messages behind it, and consider leadership for the future of the world. It’s a template created for students to understand exactly how images, symbols, and role models can play a role in shaping the future. The goal is to showcase that we all, young and old, have the ability within their own lives to create things that create change. There's only a few days left to help @amplifierart get FREE movement art into 20,000 classrooms! It's time to get involved, I know some of my art of these young heroes is still available. Please visit the link in bio to support! - Shepard
