This massive book pulls no punches and all areas of artist’s work, travels and travails are illuminated. From exhibitions, posters, flyers, silkscreens and stickers to high altitude pursuits, citations and police beatings, it’s all documented in a museum quality layout and binding. Through the lens of esteemed writers and critics such as Carlo McCormick, Steven Heller, Henry Rollins, Rob Walker, Roger Gastman and more, readers learn about Shepard Fairey, the roots of the omnipresent OBEY street art campaign, his design practice and prolific gallery exhibitions. Also featured are artworks in diverse mediums ranging from album covers (including the recently released Led Zeppelin compilation Mothership), to skateboards and T-shirts.

The evidence is in, and it’s clear that Shepard Fairey is not one to rest on his laurels; the work must go on. For both long time fans wanting the complete collection and those just curious to know what all this OBEY business is about, Obey: Supply and Demand is the answer.

About the Artist:
Shepard Fairey
Shepard Fairey
Shepard Fairey is the man behind OBEY GIANT, the graphics that have changed the way people see art and the urban landscape. What started with an absurd sticker he created in 1989 while a student at the Rhode Island School of Design has since evolved into a worldwide street art cam­paign, as well as an ac­claimed body of fine art. In 2003, Fairey foun­ded Stu­dio Num­ber One, a cre­at­ive design firm ded­ic­ated to ap­ply­ing his eth­os at the in­ter­sec­tion of art and en­ter­prise.

Fairey’s art reached a new height of prominence in 2008, when his "HOPE" portrait of Barack Obama became the icon­ic im­age of the pres­id­en­tial cam­paign and helped in­spire an un­pre­ced­en­ted polit­ic­al move­ment. The ori­gin­al im­age now hangs in the Smith­so­ni­an In-sti­tu­tion’s Na­tion­al Por­trait Gal­lery in Wash­ing­ton, D.C.

In 2009, the Institute of Con­tem­por­ary Art/Boston honored Fairey with a full-scale solo ret­ro­spective, also titled Supply and Demand. The show will tour the country through 2010. His work has also been exhibited in such museums and collections as The New Museum of Design, New York; the San Diego Museum of Con­tem­por­ary Art, San Diego, CA; the Balt­ic Cen­ter for Con-tem­por­ary Art, New Castle, UK; the Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art, New York; the Vic­tor­ia & Al­bert Mu­seum, Lon­don; and the Los Angeles County Mu­seum of Art.

MAYDAY: Art of Shepard Fairey
The final exhibition before the closing of New York’s seminal Deitch Projects, MAYDAY is a call for heightened aware­ness and a cel­eb­ra­tion of the rebirth embodied in re­volu­tion­ary movements. With energy and urgency, Fairey cap­tures the subject's radical spirit. more...
