  1. Shep is the kobe bryant of the art world. Hate him or love him, still going strong after all these years.

  2. Another lame Shepard Fairey print…
    As great as this guy is, you’d think he’d put a little more effort into his art prints.

  3. shepard fairey should start doing something different, those posters suck big time, always the same bullshit, he is just a money grab machine, keep doing crap posters and making tons of money

  4. Ill take one of these crappy posters please. Hope I can score one.

  5. @ PosterFreaker

    Not a fan of the poster either but it does say in the description that proceeds from the print go to the La Lutta Creative Response Think Tank, so the money is going to a worthy cause and not straight into his pocket.

  6. Skank you are the reason he do those crap work, people like you still buy those craps because its OBEY work!!! look at this poster, crap!

  7. poster freaker…why shit on the guy for wanting to buy a poster he likes? I doubt he’ll be sorry that he didn’t consult you for your valuable expert art opinion first.

  8. This is how it is, OBEY is a brand, not a creative outlet how Shepherd makes it out to be. I can recall after the HOPE poster madness, their were lines around the block for all his openings. Large security guards, Police cruising by, ultra hipsters talking loud on their phones ” I’m at the Sheepard Farley show, the Obama poster guy.” He used to be chill and polite and now he doesn’t even look you in the eye when signing items. Deny it or not, he is not a true street artist, but another celebrity that cranks out crap for the masses. “

  9. I do think it has a great message in the copy.
    I just think it’s a boring design job.

  10. Obey is more than a brand. It is many things to many people. It is a creative outlet. I agree that there are lots of followers whatever you wanna call em that are new or just trying to resell shit. It’s a win win for many. I personally am an old fan who doesn’t like everything put out by Obey but think this image and message is cool. I like it very much. I don’t give a rats ass to ever sit down and conversate with shepard or dwell on why he stop talking to old so called friends. Lame ass shit. Yeah, maybe he could try and make stronger images. Quality vs Qty. but that’s when you decide not to buy. Simple. Keep talking shit just makes him more known. Lol!

  11. Saying Shepard Fairey is not a true street artist is such a ridiculous statement.

    The dude has worked his ass off to get to this point. It really sucks that instead of being supportive of someone who has built such a huge following and career based solely off of his illegal street art people would rather tear down anything he does and complain about how he isn’t “street” enough anymore.

    Not every piece he does is incredible, but that is the same with any artist.

    The whole “I used to like him before he was cool” mentality is such a bummer.

  12. Whats a bummer is when people change after a spotlight of success. Its like when Metallica done the Black album. They lost a strong following to a bunch of people trying to find the next cool thing. Remember, his interns hit up spots for him. He has an army.out there

  13. It always happens – when an artist is just beyond the radar, appealing to a niche market, they’re cool. The second their work hits the mainstream and they’re popular with the masses they’ve ‘sold out’ and they’re no longer ‘cool’. If you had the opportunity to make a truck load of money what would you do – honestly? He’s producing work that folks buy. That’s economics. I think his stuff is hit and miss but I don’t knock him for the stuff that misses. That’s my personal opinion – and opinions are like arseholes – everybody’s go one.

  14. I’ve met Shepard a couple of times and he was always really cool. I didn’t analyze his body language but you can’t get your feelings hurt when a guy has 100s of people coming up to him at a show and doesn’t completely abide by the etiquette that you think you are entitled to.

  15. People who dismiss Shepard Fairey, only demonstrate how little they know about him, or this genre. His goal was ALWAYS to have his work seen by as many people as possible, which is also, just about the only reason street artists do anything, no? Only Shepard found a way to get up in the National Portrait gallery. Go ask any working street artist in the world, if they would like to have their spray paint hanging in the Smithsonian. Since the beginning, when all he had was every skater in the world sticking his shitty Andre stickers everywhere from here to Timbuktu, he had a manifesto of propaganda, that spoke of a movement. It was SUPPOSED to be about more than just him. So if you are complaining about interns, you’re just looking for reasons to get butthurt, because your complaints aren’t grounded in anything. And if all you see is his posters, y’know, the ones they come out with once a month for the last 10 yrs+, you’re missing all the amazing murals he’s working on. Google somebody, before you knock somebody. The man has hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram alone, you think he has time for coffee with every fanboy? (PS, if he reads this, do you think he’ll give me a job?)

  16. Damn….I’m going to cry myself to sleep
