OBEY Giant Shadowplay Screen Print by Shepard Fairey

OBEY Giant Shadowplay Screen Print by Shepard Fairey

Check out this beautiful new OBEY Giant screen print “Shadowplay” by Shepard Fairey. The Blot loves the retro feel this old school OBEY poster is giving off. As Shepard explained, “The Shadowplay print is inspired by punk, post-punk, and new wave music graphics that combined original art and found imagery in subversive and enigmatic ways. I love that a lot of those graphics are technically crude yet visually sophisticated. That kind of art inspired my earliest high school experiments with a copy machine, x-acto knife, and stencils. Shadowplay is a reference to the shadows of the face in my image, but also to Joy Division and their graphic designer, Peter Saville, who crafted their beautiful and haunting covers from found and manipulated imagery.”

Shadowplay by Shepard Fairey is an 18”x24” signed and numbered OBEY Giant screen print on cream speckletone paper. It will be available in two colorways: Blue and Orange. Each edition is limited to just 350 pieces and will retail for $45. They will go on sale at 10am PDT today, Tuesday, April 2nd, at the OBEY Giant online store.
