Obey Giant - Keith Haring Canvas Print by Shepard Fairey

Legendary NYC street artist Keith Haring has been immortalized in Shepard Fairey’s trademark style, and while not perfect, The Blot really likes it. The Keith Haring Canvas Print is a nice mix of Shep’s stencil art with Haring’s graffiti, although I wouldn’t have minded more of Haring’s artwork in the background. Thankfully, Fairey at least included Haring’s Radiant Baby.

Obey Giant - Keith Haring Canvas Screen Print by Shepard Fairey
Growing up, Haring, along with Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, were the holy trinity of pop art to me, and their works continue to influence my pop culture identity today. Because of that, it’s really cool to see the styles of two influential pop artists from the 80’s and 00’s collide in this print.

The Keith Haring Canvas Print by Shepard Fairey is a signed and numbered 18”x 24″ screen print with an edition size of 450 prints. This print goes on sale today, Thursday, May 20th at a random time at the Obey Giant online store. A portion of all sales of this print will go to the Keith Haring Foundation and Photographer Patrick McMullan.
