Art for life

7/14 Update – The Art For Life Auction has been extended until July 24th

More Obama, right?… Well, this is something special. After Shepard’s initial feeling not to make a fine art piece of the OBAMA image, he thought about it and was presented with an opportunity to do something exceptional. When Shepard was asked by industry heavyweight, Russell Simmons, to donate a piece for his Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, he felt this was a worthy cause. The piece is being auctioned for the Art For Life Charity event. This piece is approximately 4×6 foot in size and its a mixed media stencil collage on paper. It may be the only fine art piece of this image available to the public. You can bid on the piece through the Art For Life Auction here.

Even if your social and political influence is minimal, with this sticker on your phone you’ll be sending the right signal, improving your image, and before you know it, your phone will be ringing for real. If you can’t afford an iphone, this iconic Obamatized aesthetic over-hall is the affordable chic alternative. Oh yeah, and as always the money goes back into promoting Obama. It is truly a win/win situation.

the philosophy of obey

Sarah Jaye Williams knows art history, art theory, and has followed my Obey art and ideas throughout my career. She has compiled quotes for the “Philosophy of Obey” book by meticulously reading hundreds of my articles and interviews. These quotes touch on a broad range of topics and show the evolution of my positions over the years. There is humor, irreverence, hope, pessimism, anger, jubilation, and even maybe some wisdom mixed in with all the potentially contradictory thoughts and emotions. I think there is substantial food for thought in this spectrum statements. Check it out.

Juxtapoz Factor Laguna

Shepard was asked to participate and create a print for The Laguna Art Museum’s exhibition titled, In the Land of Retinal Delights: The Juxtapoz Factor. The print was only available at the exhibition’s opening reception and sold out before the night ended. We were fortunate enough to keep a few to sell on our site… so here they are! The prints are available now, 7/1/08, and will be until supplies last. We only have a very limited quantity so we don’t expect them to be around long. 2 colorways, both editions of 200, priced at $35 each.

The print is sold out! Thanks.
