I love The Simpsons by themselves, and kids having access to music by itself, but they’re even better together. In the 90’s when I worked 7 days a week late into the night, the only day I would stop working before late was Sunday and that was to watch The Simpsons. It’s really great for me to have been featured on The Simpsons and to get to pay tribute to the show, especially when the tribute is to an episode written by my friend Donick Cary, the founder of @musackrocks. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you haven’t seen the Mr. Sparkle episode, please check it out! You can find the Mr. Sparkle commercial through the link in bio. #MrSparkleLA opens on March 23rd with a pop-up event starting at 7pm for the general public, featuring DJ sets from Dan the Automator @dan_the_a, Shepard Fairey, a mystery Simpsons DJ, a celebrity script reading and Simpsons themed refreshments, including Mr. Sparkle beer from @fallbrewingcompany. Original one-of-a-kind art will be available and all proceeds will go towards Musack’s mission to give kids and teens around the world a voice through music!⁣ RSVP at: musack.org/mrsparkle.

Last week I celebrated with my creative agency @studionumberone at the opening of our art show, Crafted in LA.

Original one-of-a-kind art will be available for sale during the entire show, with some art being available now on the Musack website to bid on. Limited edition prints will also be available at the gallery on a first come first serve basis.

Here's a close-up shot of one of the pieces that I'm currently working on for the #OBEYGIANT 30th anniversary. Textures and layering elements is a big part of my art process, and it's hard to see these things in photos so I can't wait for people to see it all in person.

My wife recently heard a review of the film “A Face in the Crowd” from 1957, which I discovered was Andy Griffith’s very first film. Trust me, you’ve never seen Andy in a performance like this and in service of a brilliant concept. To me, this film is like Citizen Kane and Network mixed together, but somehow less revered than either. The film starts with a charming and charismatic misfit finding an outlet on local radio for his music and folksy musings, moving on to bigger national TV projects and socializing with politicians and corporate barons, and ending with him drunk on power, manipulating the masses who he sees as a moldable bewildered herd while he leaves a trail of disillusioned friends and followers. To say that the film is prescient is an extreme understatement! It is available on several streaming services and if this cautionary masterpiece is too late to prevent the latest great pretender demagogue, maybe it can warn us away from the next one. - Shepard From the archives: Demagogue, 2016 Screenprint 18 x 24 inches ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #faceinthecrowd #shepardfairey #archives #throwback

I was devastated to hear about the terror attacks by right wing extremists at two Mosques in New Zealand that took the lives of 49 worshipers. My co-workers and I are pro-peace and anti-Islamaphobia. Our thoughts are with the victims, but so are our actions. We are all very happy that the #HR8 legislation we supported passed in Congress and will strengthen background checks and make it harder for people who plan violent attacks to acquire firepower when they have histories of violent acts or rhetoric. Thanks to @TOMS Shoes for their #EndGunViolenceTogether initiative! - Shepard⁣⠀

I made this poster back in 1999, not long after I created my website. It kind of makes fun of the idea that Big Brother is behind the screen, hypnotizing you, yet he's also promoting my website in the process.

As my @obeyclothing team is in Japan this week, I’m reminded of some exciting times I’ve had there! There’s an 11-story building in the city across a plaza from one of the busiest subway exits in all of Tokyo (and probably anywhere else in the world). I went up to the roof and leaned over, using a long extension pole to paste an eight-foot icon face. It only ended up staying up for about a week, but it was long enough for hundreds of thousands of people to potentially see it. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From the archives: Tokyo Roof, 2011 Screenprint 18 x 24" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #tokyo #japan #throwback

You'll see that a lot of my works in activism are meant to signify a message of unity and peace. Supporting women falls in line with my philosophy that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. The theme of this wall I worked on back in 2007 is to promote peace, equality, and humanity. Everyone’s status is equal, and everyone’s life counts the same amount.

Today is dedicated to women everywhere that empower themselves and refuse to accept gender bias! Much of my work throughout the years showcases female figures and archetypes who represent courage, strength, and resilience. In honor of #InternationalWomensDay, here is the Target Exceptions rubylith I created for my solo exhibition Damaged in 2017. As an artist, I try to promote equality and fight injustice.

Think of pivotal cultural moments of the mid-twentieth century and know that Jim Marshall documented those imprints. From Woodstock to civil liberties, Bob Dylan to antiwar protests, Marshall’s photographic legacy has helped younger generations put these crucial, iconic movements into context. I've been a longtime fan and have had the opportunity to collaborate with the Jim Marshall estate on projects, including this art titled Fragile Peace, featuring a young peaceful protestor.

I have been drawing since I was little, but the real landmark in my life is when I started skateboarding and listening to Punk rock in 1984. At the time there was a very punk, D.I.Y. mentality in the culture of skateboarding. Around then I made my first stencil. I had decided that the factory graphics on my board were too slick so I painted my board fluorescent orange and spray-painted a black Thrasher stencil that I had cut with a kitchen knife down the bottom. Soon I realized that I could use paper cut stencils not only for spray-painting but also for screen-printing. I was very influenced by the best skateboard graphics of the 80’s and one of my favorites was the Bones Ripper done for Powell Peralta by artist Vernon Courtlandt Johnson. I made a tribute to the “Ripper” in 2008 as part of a Powell art show. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tbt #throwback #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey

I wanted to share the Dark Wave art I created in 2010 since the message is still relevant today. I started this piece in response to the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico first as a screen print and then as a fine art piece which I liked even more and released this version as an offset print. Unfortunately, the environmental hazards of off-shore drilling are just as relevant today as they were in 2010, especially with the relaxed regulations under the new administration. I'm in Hawaii this week, and being here reminds me of how much I enjoy illustrating water with its hypnotic ripples and reflections. There’s oil in this water, which mixes ok in an illustration, but not so well in real life. I want future generations to inhabit a livable planet.

The mural is called “Golden Future?” and it addresses the need to preserve the planet for future generations.

@Interpol is one of my favorite bands, and I've been lucky enough to collaborate with them throughout the years. My first introduction to them was when I stalked them backstage at Coachella and offered to create art for them if they ever needed it… to my surprise, they knew my work already and decided to take me up on my offer. My first project with Interpol was in 2004 when I created art for the follow up to their debut album, "Antics." Ten years later in 2014, I was approached with another opportunity to not only create a print but also to paint a mural for their fifth studio album, "El Pintor." I'm excited to announce that I'll be releasing a new print that I created in honor of their upcoming show in New York at Madison Square Garden on February 16th!

The @miamicityballet returns this month with Justin Peck’s Heatscape featuring art I created for the set design. I’m a big fan of Robert Rauschenberg who collaborated with Merce Cunningham, so the idea of collaborating with a choreographer in the same vein appealed to me.

I'm looking forward to visiting Hawaii next week for Oahu's @powwowworldwide event! Here's a throwback to my 2005 residency at The Contemporary Museum in Honolulu. I was presented with a unique conundrum: Hawaii doesn't have outdoor advertising, which my street art was designed to compete with and make people question. After visiting Hawaii, I realized that the primary form of propaganda was not advertising but the clichés of Hawaii itself: Coke machines have palm trees on them instead of Coke logos on them, phone booths have floral patterns running down the side, and everyone wears Aloha shirts. All the cliches of Hawaii's picturesque beauty are perpetuated to encourage tourism. So for once I got to make stuff that was decorative and beautiful, but still, if you examine it closely, skewers the Hawaiian clichés. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #hawaii #honolulu #throwback

This month is Black History Month, but racial issues exist all year long. I really believe in what MLK said when he said that ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ I have long realized the imbalance in our society and I fight to try to correct those injustices. For the Damaged exhibition, I was exploring many different themes of social justice and other threats to our civilization that I want to continue to bring awareness to. For that body of work, I created this Bias by Numbers piece in 2017 to address racial bias in policing, criminal justice, and media culture. Racial bias in policing and criminal justice has a long history, but studies have revealed evidence of just how pervasive and consistent the bias against black citizens really is. Blacks face a severe degree of police bias in relation to whites. Convictions for drug possession are almost six times higher for blacks. Blacks frequently receive longer prison sentences than whites contributing to African Americans being incarcerated at more than 5 times the rate of whites. Additionally, racial bias in police enforcement undermines public trust and presents a significant threat to legitimacy of law enforcement in all communities. We must continue to address these issues and fight back against racial bias. Please check out the link in bio for more info on racial bias in policing from the NAACP, it's important.

I created this print back in 2009 in memory of J Dilla, in collaboration with B+ @bpleasel. Jay Dee was an incredible hip-hop producer and his impact is pervasive to this day. I love a lot of Dilla’s production for A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and Busta Rhymes, but my favorite jam is the Pharcyde's “Runnin” because the song gets people movin’ using unexpected jazzy and folky samples coupled with a killer drum beat! The infectious end result uses ingredients most would have considered having little or no “shake your rump” potential. Join me as we celebrate and honor Dilla’s music and his legacy all month long.

I bought Bob Marley’s Rastaman Vibrations shortly after I started skateboarding in 1984, purely because the only good skateboard ramp where I lived was called “The Rasta Ramp.” I had mostly been listening to punk rock, but I was excited to discover reggae, which even more boldly embodied many of the same elements of social protest as punk but in a way that was much more palatable to my parents. Bob Marley’s music always cheered me up during my high-school years of personal struggle. I created this piece in collaboration with photographer Dennis Morris for his show at the Known Gallery back in 2014. To this day I’m inspired by how steadfast and positive Bob was.

To my fans and collectors, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m in a unique and incredible position where I have a lot of people who collect my prints. You all support me and count on me to continue to create work that you deem powerful enough to collect, to frame, to display, to gift, to purchase, and I do not take that lightly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While my audience has grown tremendously over the years, aspects of my business, my team and the infrastructure has had to catch up to accommodate. Within all of that, mistakes happened. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t raise my prices to take advantage of what the market will bear because it’s imperative to me that my art is accessibly priced for all. I understand that the technology behind our online sales has made e-sales challenging and my team and I are continually working to update this. In that process, we have made mistakes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We identified bot activity in the original Rose Shackle Stencil letterpress release, and therefore orders were refunded. We determined that we would release the small amount available from those refunds to real customers again. Inventory was low and very few people were able to purchase the prints. At this point in the process, the inventory available was erroneous on our end, and therefore returns were issued. Regrettably, these things happen. I understand the frustration; it’s a mutual frustration on my side, and I will continue to work hard to create new art and sell it at prices that I believe are fair. Efforts will also continue to improve our system. I ask that you, please be patient with us and realize that we are all humans. We are working hard to accommodate you all the best we can. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you for your support, Shepard

We also talked about my new book that had launched at the time, Covert to Overt. Not only does Chris inspire me with his musical talents, but he's also a brilliant photographer.

I hit a major milestone in 2017 when 'OBEY GIANT', the documentary about my life was released! It still feels very surreal to know that I'm deemed worthy enough to be a subject of a documentary film. I wanted to show people what it took for me to live a creative life, in hopes that the viewers would be inspired to pursue whatever their passion is. Special thanks to @ElysiumBandini Studios, @jenniferkhowell, @Hulu, @jamesmoll, James Franco, and countless others for their work on this project. Thanks to everyone who's checked it out, and for those of you who haven't seen it yet, you can still stream it on #Hulu. I hope you enjoy! - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #documentary #film #shepardfairey

    I love The Simpsons by themselves, and kids having access to music by itself, but they’re even better together. In the 90’s when I worked 7 days a week late into the night, the only day I would stop working before late was Sunday and that was to watch The Simpsons. It’s really great for me to have been featured on The Simpsons and to get to pay tribute to the show, especially when the tribute is to an episode written by my friend Donick Cary, the founder of @musackrocks. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you haven’t seen the Mr. Sparkle episode, please check it out!

    My wife recently heard a review of the film “A Face in the Crowd” from 1957, which I discovered was Andy Griffith’s very first film. Trust me, you’ve never seen Andy in a performance like this and in service of a brilliant concept. To me, this film is like Citizen Kane and Network mixed together, but somehow less revered than either. The film starts with a charming and charismatic misfit finding an outlet on local radio for his music and folksy musings, moving on to bigger national TV projects and socializing with politicians and corporate barons, and ending with him drunk on power, manipulating the masses who he sees as a moldable bewildered herd while he leaves a trail of disillusioned friends and followers. To say that the film is prescient is an extreme understatement! It is available on several streaming services and if this cautionary masterpiece is too late to prevent the latest great pretender demagogue, maybe it can warn us away from the next one. - Shepard From the archives: Demagogue, 2016 Screenprint 18 x 24 inches ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #faceinthecrowd #shepardfairey #archives #throwback

    I was devastated to hear about the terror attacks by right wing extremists at two Mosques in New Zealand that took the lives of 49 worshipers. My co-workers and I are pro-peace and anti-Islamaphobia. Our thoughts are with the victims, but so are our actions. We are all very happy that the #HR8 legislation we supported passed in Congress and will strengthen background checks and make it harder for people who plan violent attacks to acquire firepower when they have histories of violent acts or rhetoric.

    As my @obeyclothing team is in Japan this week, I’m reminded of some exciting times I’ve had there! There’s an 11-story building in the city across a plaza from one of the busiest subway exits in all of Tokyo (and probably anywhere else in the world). I went up to the roof and leaned over, using a long extension pole to paste an eight-foot icon face. It only ended up staying up for about a week, but it was long enough for hundreds of thousands of people to potentially see it. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From the archives: Tokyo Roof, 2011 Screenprint 18 x 24" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #tokyo #japan #throwback

    I have been drawing since I was little, but the real landmark in my life is when I started skateboarding and listening to Punk rock in 1984. At the time there was a very punk, D.I.Y. mentality in the culture of skateboarding. Around then I made my first stencil. I had decided that the factory graphics on my board were too slick so I painted my board fluorescent orange and spray-painted a black Thrasher stencil that I had cut with a kitchen knife down the bottom. Soon I realized that I could use paper cut stencils not only for spray-painting but also for screen-printing. I was very influenced by the best skateboard graphics of the 80’s and one of my favorites was the Bones Ripper done for Powell Peralta by artist Vernon Courtlandt Johnson. I made a tribute to the “Ripper” in 2008 as part of a Powell art show. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tbt #throwback #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey

    I wanted to share the Dark Wave art I created in 2010 since the message is still relevant today. I started this piece in response to the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico first as a screen print and then as a fine art piece which I liked even more and released this version as an offset print. Unfortunately, the environmental hazards of off-shore drilling are just as relevant today as they were in 2010, especially with the relaxed regulations under the new administration. I'm in Hawaii this week, and being here reminds me of how much I enjoy illustrating water with its hypnotic ripples and reflections. There’s oil in this water, which mixes ok in an illustration, but not so well in real life. I want future generations to inhabit a livable planet.

    @Interpol is one of my favorite bands, and I've been lucky enough to collaborate with them throughout the years. My first introduction to them was when I stalked them backstage at Coachella and offered to create art for them if they ever needed it… to my surprise, they knew my work already and decided to take me up on my offer. My first project with Interpol was in 2004 when I created art for the follow up to their debut album, "Antics." Ten years later in 2014, I was approached with another opportunity to not only create a print but also to paint a mural for their fifth studio album, "El Pintor."

    The @miamicityballet returns this month with Justin Peck’s Heatscape featuring art I created for the set design. I’m a big fan of Robert Rauschenberg who collaborated with Merce Cunningham, so the idea of collaborating with a choreographer in the same vein appealed to me.

    I'm looking forward to visiting Hawaii next week for Oahu's @powwowworldwide event! Here's a throwback to my 2005 residency at The Contemporary Museum in Honolulu. I was presented with a unique conundrum: Hawaii doesn't have outdoor advertising, which my street art was designed to compete with and make people question. After visiting Hawaii, I realized that the primary form of propaganda was not advertising but the clichés of Hawaii itself: Coke machines have palm trees on them instead of Coke logos on them, phone booths have floral patterns running down the side, and everyone wears Aloha shirts. All the cliches of Hawaii's picturesque beauty are perpetuated to encourage tourism. So for once I got to make stuff that was decorative and beautiful, but still, if you examine it closely, skewers the Hawaiian clichés. - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #hawaii #honolulu #throwback

    This month is Black History Month, but racial issues exist all year long. I really believe in what MLK said when he said that ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ I have long realized the imbalance in our society and I fight to try to correct those injustices. For the Damaged exhibition, I was exploring many different themes of social justice and other threats to our civilization that I want to continue to bring awareness to. For that body of work, I created this Bias by Numbers piece in 2017 to address racial bias in policing, criminal justice, and media culture. Racial bias in policing and criminal justice has a long history, but studies have revealed evidence of just how pervasive and consistent the bias against black citizens really is. Blacks face a severe degree of police bias in relation to whites. Convictions for drug possession are almost six times higher for blacks. Blacks frequently receive longer prison sentences than whites contributing to African Americans being incarcerated at more than 5 times the rate of whites. Additionally, racial bias in police enforcement undermines public trust and presents a significant threat to legitimacy of law enforcement in all communities. We must continue to address these issues and fight back against racial bias. Please check out the link in bio for more info on racial bias in policing from the NAACP, it's important.

I love a lot of Dilla’s production for A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and Busta Rhymes, but my favorite jam is the Pharcyde's “Runnin” because the song gets people movin’ using unexpected jazzy and folky samples coupled with a killer drum beat!

    I bought Bob Marley’s Rastaman Vibrations shortly after I started skateboarding in 1984, purely because the only good skateboard ramp where I lived was called “The Rasta Ramp.” I had mostly been listening to punk rock, but I was excited to discover reggae, which even more boldly embodied many of the same elements of social protest as punk but in a way that was much more palatable to my parents. Bob Marley’s music always cheered me up during my high-school years of personal struggle. I created this piece in collaboration with photographer Dennis Morris for his show at the Known Gallery back in 2014. To this day I’m inspired by how steadfast and positive Bob was. Happy birthday, Bob Marley! - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From the archives: Bob Marley Canvas, 2014 Mixed Media (Stencil, Silkscreen, and Collage) on Canvas 30 x 41” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #bobmarley #happybirthday #shepardfairey #dennismorris #knowngallery #throwback #archives

    The lotus flower is inspiring to me because of its beauty and symbolism, something beautiful that grows out of the mud. I see the Lotus as a metaphor for what we need in this moment… a need to lift ourselves out of the mud of political and environmental irresponsibility in pursuit of harmony with each other and the planet. – Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From the archives: Lotus Ornament (Red), 2008 Screenprint 61 x 46" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #lotusflower #throwback #screenprint

    I completed this 15-story Johnny Cash mural with my crew last year in August for @wideopenwalls and @brandedarts. The art is based on a photo by @jimmarshallphoto, which I used originally as part of my American Civic series. I wanted to paint this portrait of @johnnycash on a large scale, not only as a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Cash’s Live at Folsom Prison album, but also in the hopes to ignite a conversation around the need for incarceration reform. Thanks @musiconwalls for choosing this mural as the winner of 2018 Best Music On Walls Mural!

    There are a lot of layers that go into my process. Here's a look at an unfinished piece in the studio. Working on some things to be revealed later this year. Stay tuned! - Shepard

    To my fans and collectors, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m in a unique and incredible position where I have a lot of people who collect my prints. You all support me and count on me to continue to create work that you deem powerful enough to collect, to frame, to display, to gift, to purchase, and I do not take that lightly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While my audience has grown tremendously over the years, aspects of my business, my team and the infrastructure has had to catch up to accommodate. Within all of that, mistakes happened. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t raise my prices to take advantage of what the market will bear because it’s imperative to me that my art is accessibly priced for all. I understand that the technology behind our online sales has made e-sales challenging and my team and I are continually working to update this. In that process, we have made mistakes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We identified bot activity in the original Rose Shackle Stencil letterpress release, and therefore orders were refunded. We determined that we would release the small amount available from those refunds to real customers again. Inventory was low and very few people were able to purchase the prints. At this point in the process, the inventory available was erroneous on our end, and therefore returns were issued. Regrettably, these things happen. I understand the frustration; it’s a mutual frustration on my side, and I will continue to work hard to create new art and sell it at prices that I believe are fair. Efforts will also continue to improve our system. I ask that you, please be patient with us and realize that we are all humans. We are working hard to accommodate you all the best we can. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you for your support, Shepard

    Blondie (@blondieofficial) is one of my favorite bands, with a mixture of punk coolness and a flair for the underground, matched with their incredibly genre-bending music! I am very fortunate that I now call Chris Stein (@christein) a friend of mine. Here are shots from 2015 when Chris and I sat down at NeueHouse New York to discuss our shared interests in art, culture, and music. We also talked about my new book that had launched at the time, Covert to Overt. Not only does Chris inspire me with his musical talents, but he's also a brilliant photographer. He shot some of the most iconic downtown NYC scene photos out there, not to mention his muse, Debbie Harry. I appreciate his support, and by the way Covert to Overt is still available for purchase, hit the link in bio if you want to get a copy! - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photos: Andrew Boyle

    I hit a major milestone in 2017 when 'OBEY GIANT', the documentary about my life was released! It still feels very surreal to know that I'm deemed worthy enough to be a subject of a documentary film. I wanted to show people what it took for me to live a creative life, in hopes that the viewers would be inspired to pursue whatever their passion is. Special thanks to @ElysiumBandini Studios, @jenniferkhowell, @Hulu, @jamesmoll, James Franco, and countless others for their work on this project. Thanks to everyone who's checked it out, and for those of you who haven't seen it yet, you can still stream it on #Hulu. I hope you enjoy! - Shepard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #obey #obeygiant #documentary #film #shepardfairey
