OBEY IN MALAGA PART 2

The main objective as you’ll see from the photos has been nothing but work.  Everything has been running smooth, expect from being 120 feet in the air and for some reason we brought the wind. There is a lot of positive energy and support from the people in Málaga along with the help from everyone at MAUS Malaga and the CAC Málaga. Enjoy!

Jello Biafra/Powell Peralta skateboards

I’ve been a fan of Jello Biafra and Powell Peralta skateboards for almost 30 years! One of my first punk albums was “Plastic Surgery Disasters” by the Dead Kennedys, and I rode several Powell Peralta boards in the 80′s including the Lance Mountain, Mike McGill, Tommy Guerrero, Steve Saiz, and Tony Hawk. I also imitated the way Lance Mountain dressed in the first Bones video because he wore khakis, Vans, and a t-shirt, so since I had to wear khakis to private school, I’d just change into a t-shirt and Vans right after school! When Jello Biafra, who I’ve worked with on a few projects, asked me to design some boards for the Alternative Tentacles record label 33 and1/3 anniversary, I was more than happy to collaborate with all of the players. The image of Jello is based(with a few creative liberties taken) on a photo by Glen E. Friedman. There should be a poster coming soon. The Alternative Tentacles board uses Winston Smith’s awesome A.T. logo as the focal point, with design embellishments by me. Ask for the boards at a skate shop, and look out for the poster in late Dec.  -Shepard

Obey in Málaga part 1

Shepard was invited by the Maus Málaga and the CAC Málaga to paint an 80’ tall x 30’ wide mural in the center of the rising art community here in Málaga.  After a long ass flight, crappy airplane food and no sleep, we finally arrived and were greeted with some authentic Spanish food.  Slept as much as we could then went straight to work on Sunday morning. Here’s a little taste into our trip and the spanish life style.

LAST WEEK to view Ravi Zupa: Hard Dream at Subliminal Projects

This is the LAST WEEK to view Ravi Zupa: Hard Dream at Subliminal Projects.

Hard Dream is Zupa’s first solo show in Los Angeles and it will be closing on Saturday, November 23rd. The works combine acrylic, pencil, watercolor, india ink, color ink, oil pastel, block print, and silk screen on canvas. The intense, complex results reference various artistic styles and figures from Japanese woodblock prints to Flemish masters to Renaissance portraiture. This base imagery is riddled with contemporary iconography, modern political references, and a tasteful, balanced defacement that also resonates in street art. The art in this exhibition is physically, mentally, and stylistically layered – the product of a truly talented artist whose work you should make the trip to see.

Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 6 pm and Tuesday by appointment. 1331 W. Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026. Street parking only.

Shepard Fairey to Appear on mtvU’s ‘Stand In,’ Teases New Series ‘Rebel Music’

Shepard will join the likes of Madonna and Bill Maher as a guest lecturer on mtvU’s “Stand In,” paying a surprise visit to a college class on arts and media to discuss his six-part documentary series “Rebel Music.”

When it comes to street art, London’s got Banksy but L.A.’s got Shepard Fairey, whose bold, stark stencils and “Obey” posters are ubiquitous in East Hollywood, Silverlake and Echo Park. Tonight the street artist, whose humble punk-rock scrawlings in the eighties have since grown into a worldwide art enterprise, appears on mtvU’s 24-hour college channel series Stand In. He’ll join a list of past guests like Madonna, Bill Maher and Seth MacFarlane, who paid surprise visits to college classes where they lectured on film, art and media.

Fairey addresses a USC class on New Media for Social Change about Rebel Music, the six-part documentary series he is executive producing with Nusrat Durrani on mtvU. Debuting Nov. 18 at 9 p.m. EST/PST, Rebel Music is a look at musicians and artists around the world who take on the establishment, often at great risk to themselves and loved ones.

LEGO Improvisation

Glen E. Friedman sent me this cool improvised installation in a Lego “graffiti” frame someone gave to his son Ezio. I like that Lego is nudging kids in the direction of rebellious expression. (Lego frame did not come with my sticker… Glen and Ezio added that!)
It’s amazing how exhilarating life can be if you leave the house and feel the wind on your face.
