Blériot / Don’t Panic Interview

My friend Blériot, who I met while doing my Sound & Vision show, was just interviewed by Don’t Panic! My first project in London, when I went there for the first time in 1999, was a poster design for Don’t Panic! I’m glad to see they are still keen to give young artists exposure. Check it out. http://dontpaniconline.com/magazine/arts/artist-spotlight-blriot­

BNE x OBEY Charity:Water T-Shirt Update

For everyone who supported and purchased the t-shirt I designed in collaboration with BNE for charity:water, please know that the shirts are being produced and delivered in the coming weeks.

I know firsthand that the charity endeavor is legitimate and that you will all get your Obey Water T-shirts. Beyond that, I will let BNE speak for himself.

Please continue to support and raise awareness of World Water Day and the message behind this project!

World Water Day x BNE.org

Tomorrow is World Water Day.  Visit BNE.org at 12Noon PST to help solve a crisis that kills more people than all forms of violence, including war. Among other things, the orginal illustration from the “Water Crisis” print that BNE and I did for charity: water will be for sale. I did the illustration based on a photo that BNE shot in Indonesia. For anyone who does not know, I cut my illustrations out of a material called Rubylith with an X-acto knife. Rubylith is a dark orange gelatin on an acetate backing used for screen-printing. In this case the Rubylith is mounted on collage. The art is 10.5 X 23 inches.. Support this cause!

SHEPARD FAIREY X CHINESE ARTIST AND HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST AI WEIWEI

I admire Ai Weiwei for his art and his activism. His art is beautiful in form, and in function embodies the principles of populism and social consciousness I aspire to in my own practice. This poster is a tribute to Ai Weiwei’s art, his courage to be outspoken, and in support of his ongoing political struggle with the Chinese government. I hope the image will help raise awareness and advance dialogue that might lead to permission for Ai Weiwei to travel freely and continue to express himself.   – Shepard

Check out more about the support of Ai Weiwei in collaboration with Friends of Ai Weiwei in this recent article from the Los Angeles Times.

The Ai Weiwei print will be available as a limited edition of 375; the artist is donating 100 posters to the Brooklyn Museum, which will present an Ai Weiwei retrospective exhibition, “Ai Weiwei: According to What?” from April 18 through August 10, 2014. Thanks to Pace Prints for their support.

My friend, photographer Dennis Morris, with whom I collaborated on the SID show, has a show of his amazing Bob Marley photos coming up March 29 at the Known Gallery.  Dennis invited me to collaborate on a Marley image as part of the show and I’m very happy with how it turned out. I did a painting and there will be an 18×24 screen print signed by both of us available at the gallery. If you are in the LA area, check it out!

A talk with Moby and Shepard Fairey at Project Gallery

Moby and I have become friends over the last few years and I was honored that he invited me to join in him in a discussion about art and music at the Project Gallery where his “Innocents” photography is showcased. Our mutual friend, writer Shana Nys Dambrot moderated our discussion and asked great questions about the cross-pollination of art and music, inspiration, punk,  process, etc… Check out Moby’s show before it closes if you are in LA.  -Shepard

The Human Trial Print

What’s stopping us from stopping diabetes? Since I was diagnosed with Type1 diabetes (T1D), I’ve heard the cure was only 5 years away. That was almost 30 years ago.  Friends of mine are making a documentary film called The Human Trial (thehumantrial.com) that is following top US researchers in their quest to cure T1D. They are asking the tough questions about why there hasn’t been a cure. I want to see this film get made. Click here to purchase a print of the film poster I created. Get involved. Support the cause.
