Later today, Obey Giant will be releasing Shephard Fairey’s newest screen print entitled “Drink Crude Oil”. As Shephard explains, this “print uses torn ad posters as a metaphor for the competing fragmented messages we are all confronted with daily. A lot of our habits are reinforced by the ubiquity and consistency of propaganda around certain products. For example, consuming oil and gas is presented as part of the good life alongside drinking Coca-Cola. Rather than always swallowing, I think it is important to comb through the competing messages with caution.”
“Drink Crude Oil” by Shephard Ffairey is an 18”x24” signed and numbered screen print on cream Speckle Tone paper. Limited to 450 pieces, collectors can purchase it at 10am PST on Tuesday, February 7th, at the Obey Giant online store for $45.
