Thanks for the great shot of my "Fire Sale" mural @theirishtaoist! I'm grateful to have this mural across from the historic Pike Place Market, its one of the first places I did street art in Seattle about 20 years ago. - Shepard #Repost @theirishtaoist ・・・ #playingtourist #happybdaybfast #pikeplacemarket #seattle

Rowdy Roddy Piper was a pro wrestler and also the protagonist of John Carpenter’s film, “They Live." This film, along with my love of Orwell, inspired the use of the word OBEY in my art. Roddy knew about the OBEY connection, and we met up a couple of times. He told me some amazing stories about his early days struggling to establish himself as a wrestler and his times with Andre the Giant. We had a great time talking about rebellion and what it takes to make it on your own terms. Rowdy Roddy Piper was an original and he is missed. Today would have been his 65th birthday so watch “They Live” if you haven’t. Roddy has some great lines like “I came here to chew bubblegum and kick-ass and I’m all out of bubblegum.” That one was appropriated and reworked by Linklater in “Dazed and Confused.” Thanks for the inspiration, Roddy. - Shepard

Fan the Flames is about the unfortunate truth that unchecked capitalism and a livable planet will soon be incompatible. Capitalism is predicated on expanding consumption and profits without regard to environmental consequences (with the exception of a few conscientious companies). I’m not making an indictment of capitalism in its entirety, only making the point that safety checks need to exist to put the health of the many before the profits of a few. The function of government is to serve the needs of the people who elected it before the needs of corporations, however corporate donations and lobbyists corrupt democracy in the way that they shift government's priorities from the needs of the many to the desires of big corporations. Campaign finance reform would help to keep polluters and fossil fuel corporations from going unchecked. We all need to think about how we vote and how we consume with an eye on a very delicate future ecologically. If you have not read it, I’d strongly recommend Naomi Klein’s book “This Changes Everything”… the market does not solve all problems; most need to be solved by humans who understand ethical responsibility. Proceeds from this print will benefit @350org, but I’d also suggest checking out @representus. Thanks for caring! - Shepard⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ OBEY Fan the Flames.

My wife and I love Paris and all its beauty and we just visited the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris last year. It's beautiful in photographs but absolutely stunning in real life. I'm hopeful that it can be repaired and my thoughts are with the people of Paris and everyone who this effects. - Shepard

My wife Amanda and I are proud to support the Library Foundation of Los Angeles and attended this year's Young Literati 2019 Annual Toast to benefit public libraries, democratize information, provide valuable programs, and promote the literacy of our city! The artwork that @cleonpeterson and I created decorated the stage, and the invites and programs were designed by my creative agency @studionumberone! Thank you @youngliteratila and thank you @amandafairey for your leadership with the Library Foundation. Don't forget to support your local libraries! - Shepard

The Shrine is coming out with their new EP, "Cruel World" on May 3rd! If you're in Los Angeles, come celebrate with us at their record release on April 19th at the House of Machines! The Paranoyds and Cat Scan will be opening, and I'll be dj'ing, along with Judith Preist and Tony Accosta. It'll be a fun night, hope to see you there! - Shepard⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ Visit the link in bio for tickets and more info.

Music is something that I’ve been passionate about since I was a kid. I love the accessibility of music; it is democratic in a way that most visual art is not. In fact, I emulate the music model in the ways that I disseminate my visual art. Happy #RecordStoreDay, go visit your local record store and have fun digging! - Shepard⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ From the archives: ⁣ Obey Highest Standards, 2006⁣ Screenprint and collage on album cover⁣ 12.25 x 12.5 inches⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ #obey #obeygiant #recordstoreday #shepardfairey #archive⁣ ⁣

Punk rock band OFF! @offofficial is making a movie called "Watermelon” and according to their lead singer Keith Morris (original singer for Black Flag and the Circle Jerks), it deals with the band breaking up and then getting back together to combat evil forces in the world! I’ll be doing a piece of art for their Kickstarter soon in the same spirit of this collab I did with them in 2014. Support them at their campaign page (link in bio). -Shepard

I created this ‘Lead by Example’ ADOPT print back in 2009. The project started as a commemoration of the historic day that a dog adopted from a shelter or rescue group took up residence in the White House, but it then became a plea for everyone to ‘Lead by Example!' The directive was a ‘call to action’ to raise awareness for the plight of shelter animals nationwide. I partnered with Adopt-a-Pet.com to get the millions of great shelter animals to be seen, saved and into loving homes. Proceeds from the print purchases went entirely towards these efforts. It was and still is my hope today that this piece inspires people to become advocates for these animals. These animals urgently need us! - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy #NationalPetDay.

I attended the Cesar Chavez Legacy Awards last Thursday in Los Angeles. Thank you @chavezfoundation for making me one of the Honorees, alongside California Secretary of State Alex Padilla @alexpadilla4ca, NPR’S Lulu Garcia-Navarro, cartoonist and activist Lalo Alcaraz @laloalcaraz1, and civil rights activist Sylvia Mendez @sylviamendez82. I was honored to stand next to those who have inspired and transformed our communities. Viva la causa! - Shepard

I'm excited that my art will be on view at the group exhibition, "From the World, Made in Lisboa," starting this Friday, April 12th in Lisbon!

My #DamagedApp with @vrtventures is nominated for a Webby Award (@thewebbyawards) under the Art & Experimental category! I’m excited that the app allows art fans around the world to experience my largest solo fine art exhibition to date in a profoundly powerful way through VR and AR, especially those who weren’t able to make it to Los Angeles where it was on view in 2017. The Damaged App is FREE to download on the App Store and Google Play through the end of the month! Check it out and vote for it if you dig it! Thanks to @juxtapozmag for all the support. - Shepard⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⠀⁣ PLEASE VOTE THROUGH THE LINK IN BIO BY 4/18!

AMERICAN CIVICS AVAILABLE TUESDAY, APRIL 9TH @ 10 AM PDT AT OBEYGIANT.COM! Jim Marshall documented some of the most important historical and cultural moments in our country. I was honored to collaborate with his iconic images and my aim was to amplify them by bringing something new with my style, but also remain true to the emotions that Jim captured. The "American Civics" series was the first-ever collaboration between me and Jim Marshall's estate, and the series focuses on voting rights, gun control, prison reform, income inequality, and workers’ rights. The art I created for American Civics gives a face to social justice issues, to cultivate dialogue and encourage a vigorous push for solutions to societal problems. As part of this series, the "American Civics" exhibition was on view at @subliminalprojects in 2016, but now these prints will be available online! These prints are extremely limited, and are produced at a higher quality than my usual prints; all 30 x 40 inches, 4-color serigraph on varnished 100% cotton rag archival paper. A portion of proceeds from each print will go to corresponding charities. Check it out! - Shepard⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⠀ Mass Incarceration. A portion of proceeds will benefit @cut50 and the Jim Marshall Fellowship at UC Berkeley.⁣⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⠀ Gun Culture. A portion of proceeds will benefit @calibercollection and the Jim Marshall Fellowship at UC Berkeley.⁣⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⠀ Workers’ Rights. A portion of proceeds will benefit United Farm Workers Foundation and the Jim Marshall Fellowship at UC Berkeley.⁣⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⠀ Two Americas. A portion of proceeds will benefit @nokidhungry and the Jim Marshall Fellowship at UC Berkeley.⁣⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⠀ Voting Rights.

I had a great time djing and hanging out with everyone at the opening reception of #Rotary last night! I'm happy to see the works of @russpope, @groteskito, and @hanaiyusuke currently at the gallery. Rotary will be on view at @subliminalprojects Wednesday - Saturday, 12pm - 6pm through May 18th. If you’re in LA, come by and check it out! - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #subliminalprojects #losangeles #echopark

I like seeing art in public spaces instead of just in galleries and museums. The freedom of putting work up on the street without asking for permission is very exhilarating for me. - Shepard⁣⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⠀ #throwback #streetart #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey

Our collaboration with @obeyclothing x @invaderwashere will be dropping tomorrow, April 5th on obeyclothing.com! Visit the link in bio to learn more from @hypebeast. - Shepard

I'm spending lots of time at the studio this week for the #OBEYGIANT 30th anniversary… top secret stuff... but I guess it’s pretty easy to see what series this colorway is from!? - Shepard⁣

If you're in LA this Saturday, be sure to check out the opening reception of #Rotary - an exhibition of new works by @groteskito, @russpope, and @hanaiyusuke, curated by Russ Pope. These three influential artists and lauded figures in skate, surf, and art & design culture will come together to create an exhibition showcasing how their diverse aesthetics and multi-dimensional lives intersect, landing them in the same lane on the rotary.⁣ I'll be djing that night, and so will @chopperdave. Complimentary drinks and valet will be provided. Don't miss it! - Shepard⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⁣⁣⠀⁣ Visit the link in bio to RSVP to the opening reception on April 6th, 7pm - 10pm at @subliminalprojects.
