Arkitip Issue No. 0051: Shepard Fairey

I have known Scott, the creator of Arkitip for ten years when he was on issue 2. I was in issue 3 and I later contributed writing to a few other issues. The magazine started off only black and white, but has evolved into a very beautiful and sophisticated publication. I am very proud to be the featured artist in Arkitip 51. The issue includes current exclusive content from my indoor and outdoor work for the Boston ICA as well as a large selection of my newest fine art. There is an extensive interview with me by Simon Steinhardt and a great essay by ICA curator Pedro Alonzo. The magazine is packaged in a premium  box with hand placed stickers on the outside. The magazine itself is perfect bound and has a die-cut cover. There is also a magazine sized, one color signed and numbered version of the Obey Eyeball print. The run is limited to 5,000. Check it out.

The Youngest Candidate

When I saw The Youngest Candidate, I found it to be both an inspiring example of young people getting involved in the political process and a sobering reminder of how the two-party system in America has turned the two parties into clubs, divided into members and outsiders. I decided to make art for the film because I think those are equally important lessons in democracy, especially for anyone who wants to change things and for anyone convinced that things will never change.
