I’m proud to announce the upcoming release of @raviamarzupa’s “Love Thy Enemy” letterpress and his guest artist series for @obeyclothing. Ravi Zupa is a rare find as an artist, with an astounding command of a broad range of techniques and aesthetics. Ravi demonstrates mastery in a renaissance painting style, collage, printmaking, and drawing. The rich fusion of techniques in his work could be presumed to be appropriation, but it is not… all of the elements are rendered by Ravi. I love Ravi's art, but Ravi and I also have several shared interests in D.I.Y. culture, printmaking, propaganda art, and social justice. For the Obey Clothing collaboration, Ravi addressed environmental destruction and the power of communication over violence. Along with the concepts of the art, I think the process Ravi used to create these art pieces is amazing: he cuts the art out of a traffic cone like a linoleum cut and uses the cone as his plate. Ravi is a true craftsman and a unique talent. I urge everyone to check this video (link in bio) demonstrating Ravi’s process. I’m honored to collaborate with Ravi for his talent and his philosophies. - Shepard Love Thy Enemy. 10 x 13 inches. #Letterpress on cream cotton paper with hand-deckled edges. Signed by #RaviZupa. Numbered edition of 200. $55. Available Tuesday, October 24 @ 10 AM (PDT) on ObeyGiant.com in Store under Prints. Limit 1 per person/household. To coincide with the release of artist Ravi Zupa’s latest letterpress, @obeyclothing is releasing a collection of tees for this season’s #OBEYArtistSeries.

@librarystreetcollective just announced my upcoming exhibition in #LA, aptly titled #DAMAGED. It's been nearly 10 years since my last solo exhibition in Los Angeles and in this unprecedented political climate, my message has changed from hope to purpose. 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. DAMAGED opens Saturday, November 11 at 8pm. For more info on the show, visit ObeyGiant.com or email email@example.com. CLICK LINK IN BIO TO RSVP!

Today is #XDay in #LosAngeles! @xthebandofficial has been one of my favorite bands since I discovered them in the mid-80’s. Their album ‘Los Angeles’ is a punk essential, but it hinted that they were capable of styles beyond punk. I’ve been lucky to work with #X and co-lead singer @theejohndoe on a few projects over the years. They have a well deserved show opening at the @grammymuseum in #LA this Friday, October 13. Check it out and LISTEN to them if you aren’t familiar! - Shepard

I, along with the rest of the world, was devastated to hear about the horrible and horrendous acts of terror that took place in #LasVegas earlier this week. My studio quickly banded together with some leaders in the Las Vegas community to create powerful visual messages of unity. I’m proud that my team and I could help to contribute something that can give us all a message of hope in this dark time. - Shepard In the wake of the recent tragedy in Las Vegas, Red Rock Resorts Foundation and @studionumberone collaborated to create a number of graphics that capture the strength, unity and resilience of the Las Vegas community. The iconic images, memorialized on t-shirts, are available for sale at www.VegasStrong.co. $25 each. 100% of the profits will benefit local organizations in support of those impacted by the events on October 1. #VegasStrong
#TBT - DJing the opening reception of #girlgaze: UNCENSORED at @subliminalprojects! Check out the show Wednesday-Saturday from 12pm-6pm until October 28. 📷: @gettyimages
SOLD OUT - The Rose Soldier letterpress is a more iconic update to an older print dealing with a consistent theme in my work: PEACE! The flower in the gun barrel became a peace symbol during the Vietnam War when protesters would place real flowers in the barrels of the guns wielded by the National Guard. With war and gun violence remaining constant, I’d like this print to remind us to push for peace. The image is also designed as a stencil, so use it as a guide to make your own if you are inspired. Our gallery @subliminalprojects is hosting a #peace themed show next month with photos by Jim Marshall and some collaborations I did inspired by some of his photos. Check out the show if you are in #LA or passing through. - Shepard ROSE SOLDIER LETTERPRESS AVAIL. TOMORROW (10/10) @ 10AM (PDT) on ObeyGiant.com in Store under Prints. 10 x 13 inches. #Letterpress.
