Levis® invited acclaimed street artist shepard fairey – best known for making his mark around the world with his signature obey logo and more recently his barack obama ‘hope’ poster – to develop a collection for the Levis® brand centered around the obey trademark. the obey x Levis® line includes t-shirts, trucker jackets and jeans which have been injected with fairey’s graphic style. to celebrate, Levis® welcomed fairey to their flagship store located in new york city’s times square – where the artist went to work doing what he does best – adorning the streets in his signature art work. he put up wheatpastes of his art along with tagging the obey logo outside the store infront of an intrigued crowd.shepard fairey: obey collaboration with Levis® fairey preparing the walls for his artwork photo by richard bassettimage courtesy of gradient magazine

  • saw the Shepard Fairey exhibit at the Andy Warhol museum…nice try. I don’t think Warhol was a socialist but rather an individualist challenging the establishment, SF is criticizing the same capitalist society by profiting from it. if you want a message of not being a follower, don’t send it out as a message to all …then you are just doing the same thing except you want them to follow you…hence socialism…not really advocating for equality for all.
