Man, it’s been awhile since Shepard Fairey / Obey Giant released a new print, I have to say I’ve really missed his stuff. “Close Knit” is an 18″ x 24″ screenprint, has an edition of 450, and will be $50. Proceeds from the print will go to benefit the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation. These go up tomorrow (Thursday, August 20th) at a random time. Visit ObeyGiant.com.
PS, here is what Shepard had to say about the imagery:
“I chose to illustrate this image of two girls knitting (in a Rush Arts program) because I think it really captures the idea that learning art in schools is about more than crayon drawings, it’s about creativity, something that transcends all class and race boundaries. I think the joy of making something is universal, and it’s an opportunity that every kid should have.”
