SCREEN: Shepard Fairey – Obey This Film
by Jon "Law" Heredia
There’s been a number of films and documentaries based on street-artist, designer, turned cultural icon Shepard Fairey. However, with Brett Novak’s Obey This Film, we get a first-hand account from the man himself – Mr. Fairey – describing his artistic inspiration and development, to the marketing of his work allowing his art to reach the culturally iconic status it has today. The short documentary focuses on the life of Shepard Fairey and two of his most popular works, Andre the Giant and the Obama poster. Check the film below and enjoy!
