You may already be aware of our love for OBEY, so naturally we’re excited to celebrate OBEY’s 25th anniversary with a collection featuring the influential graphics that have inspired and shaped the OBEY brand over the years.
In 1989, nineteen year old Shepard Fairey designed an OBEY sticker that catapulted him into the spotlight. From there OBEY has grown into a large scale project acting as a vehicle for Fairey’s art, commentary and mischief. The past 25 years has seen a dramatic shift in our art, more specifically gorilla art, is perceived, and slowly integrated as a cultural norm. Brands like OBEY is the perfect case study for that evolution.
“Keep your eyes and mind open, and question everything” – Shepard Fairey
