REAL SKATEBOARDS Collaboration

Shepard recently designed 6 new boards for the REAL Skate Team… this is what Jim Thiebaud had to say about the collaboration:

” I have always respected and admired what Shepard Fairey does. His art, design, and connection with subversive imagery have always been something that I respected and totally sweated. Being able to work with him on the new REAL Subvert Series was a great experience. He really brought out the differences the guys on the team have while also showing that they share the common bond of riding for REAL”.

Each board is a limited edition and comes signed.

RISE ABOVE

RISE ABOVE SERIES, Ed of 50, 29×42, Signed and Numbered, $400 each

The large format prints we have on the site are the most slept on items we’ve got. The large format are basically the same price as the smaller prints on EBAY right now but in smaller editions, twice the size, with equally incredible imagery. These new prints are part of the RISE ABOVE SERIES that debuted at the Merry Karnowsky Opening in Los Angeles. They measure 29″ x 42″ and are Editions of 50 (Signed and Numbered). If you want to start collecting fine art prints this is a great place to begin!

LA Punk Rock- American Hardcore Event This Saturday

As many of you know, punk and hardcore changed my life by showing me that through resourceful independence people can build their own scene and be creative on their own terms. Ed Colver shot some amazing photos of the hardcore scene and the picture below became the cover for Steven Blush’s excellent book “American Hardcore”. Anyone who cares about the influence of indie music should check out this event.

LIFE REMOTE CONTROL the movie

LIFE REMOTE CONTROL is 90 minutes of ruthless quick-fire positive brainwashing from the front line. Critics complain of a generation, raised on commercials, cable TV, and music videos, has lost its
attention span. This movie sets out to prove that our visual impatience is not a weakness; it is our greatest strength. No one can pull the wool over your eyes if they’re pointing in two different directions at once.
Film features the Artistic Innovation of: Shepard Fairey, Banksy, KAWS, WK Interact, Ron English, FAILE, Brian McGee, Malcolm McLaren, Space Invader, Monsieur A. and many more…
