Blast from the past: OBEY Prints

Posted by tehblogging trolless | 6:21 AM

Hey, remember ages ago those Obey prints? I do, way back in the 90s, I'd see them everywhere. Must've be a skater thing. I mean like almost every skateboard I knew had the big sticker with ominous face and 'OBEY' in big print on the bottom. The obey giant prints were just everywhere.

Well it took me years later (noted in an older blog post) to find out that artist shepard fairey was the mastermind behind said print.

Well, nowadays the shepard fairey art style have expanded beyond a simple monotone face and text from his famous redo of the Obey icon with Obama's face, to his many works spoofing propaganda posters from various world regimes. His works give a general tone of rebellion with the simple use of a few colors with not sacrificing detail on any of them. It's been almost 20 years and I still not only find Fairey's works easily recognizable, but iconic.
