OBEY Giant - Israel/Palestine Print by Shepard Fairey

This Thursday OBEY Giant is releasing an all new print that The Blot is very excited about. It is entitled “Israel/Palestine,” so you can be sure Fairey is subtly trying to convey some sort of message about the strife taking place in the Middle East. I’m not exactly sure what Fairey’s message is on this subject since he hasn’t given any background information on this screen print’s inspiration, but that is part of its charm. “Israel/Palestine” leaves itself open to the viewer’s interpretation and the symbolism it conveys with contrasting red & white and red & black Obey fabric patterns on either side of a mysterious woman peeking out from between them.

The “Israel/Palestine” screen print will be 18”x24” in size and will go on sale this Thursday, March 19, 2009 at the Obey Giant online store at 12pm PST. Each signed and numbered “Israel/Palestine” will sell for $45 and the print will probably have an edition of around 450. In The Blot’s personal opinion this is one of the coolest OBEY Giant prints to be released in a while, and I will definitely be trying to get my hands on one. Of course like all OBEY Giant print this one should sell out extremely quickly, especially since the sale’s start time has been published.
