Purchase As Seen on TV- Mini, Part of the True Facts Mini Multiple Series Original Hand-Painted Multiple (HPM) on Wood Cradled Panel ready to hang by Denial Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. "My work speaks of impending doom and a lot of crass sinister themes, but that should not mean I desire this to happen at all. I hope my work would suggest only the opposite: to show the ridiculousness of it all and how we may find better solutions for the future." -Denial Denial’s art is strongly political and social since the artist takes specific positions against issues, such as capitalism, consumer culture, and advertisements. More importantly, the artist is aware of his choices and motivations: “I like to think of myself as activist pop art. How I relate with cartoons and graphics is a lot easier than I do with photo-realistic stuff" Another aspect of Denial's work is humor. His work is satirical, which, by definition, means that it uses humor as a confronting mechanism.

This past Saturday, Musack did an amazing tribute to Terry with a bonkers lineup, including Horace Panter and Lynval Golding of the Specials, Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go’s, Fishbone, No Doubt (except Gwen), Tom Morello, Tim Armstrong and Jesse Michaels of Operation Ivy, Donita Sparks of L7, and others! I fell in love with the Specials in the summer of 1989, around the time I started listening to Operation Ivy and Fishbone, so to have members of all those bands celebrating Terry was incredible! I was also able to do the poster for the event based on a beautiful photo by Chalkie Davies. There are two versions of the print, one with the event lineup included and another that is a simpler tribute to Terry. The black and white print are editions of 325, but the show lineup print is a smaller quantity (edition of 300) because many were sold at the event, and all proceeds from those benefit Musack, an excellent music charity for kids. On a personal note, Terry came by my studio a couple of times, and we talked for hours. He was kind, thoughtful, and very open about life’s ups and downs. We talked about kids, mental health, insecurity, relationships, the therapeutic benefits of creativity, and many other heavy topics. He was a kindred spirit who I thought I’d be friends with for many years. This print was done with love… thanks for the tunes Terry!" -Shepard Fairey- OBEY The realm of street art, pop culture, and graffiti has witnessed countless legendary figures whose artistry has both challenged and changed perceptions. One such luminary is Shepard Fairey, the renowned artist behind the OBEY campaign, who has consistently melded activism and artistry in his works. A notable tribute by Fairey is the silkscreen print dedicated to Terry Hall, the iconic lead singer of the Specials. Terry Hall's influence in the world of music was significant, and his tragic passing due to pancreatic cancer was a tremendous loss to the music community. This sentiment was palpable when Musack hosted an astounding tribute to Hall, graced by stalwarts like Horace Panter, Lynval Golding, Jane Wiedlin, Fishbone, members of No Doubt, and numerous other eminent artists. This tribute not only celebrated Hall's legacy but also underscored the bond shared by these artists, many of whom were influenced by the Specials during their formative years. The silkscreen print crafted by Fairey serves as a testament to Hall's enduring impact on him and the broader music fraternity. The artwork, pulled by hand on fine art paper, epitomizes the meticulousness synonymous with Fairey's creations. Limited to an edition of 325, the monochromatic rendition of Hall draws inspiration from a poignant photograph by Chalkie Davies. An alternative version features the event lineup, limited to an edition of 300, with a significant portion having been sold during the event. The proceeds from this version were dedicated to Musack, a laudable charity aimed at empowering kids through music. Fairey's connection with Hall went beyond mere admiration. Their conversations, which delved deep into topics like mental health, creativity, and life's intricacies, highlighted the profound respect and mutual understanding they shared. The artist's tribute to Hall is more than just a print; it's a heartfelt homage to a kindred spirit. Through this artwork, Fairey offers the world a glimpse into their shared moments, while simultaneously emphasizing Terry Hall's undying influence in the realms of music and culture.

I first processed down panels to get the tiled effect I desired. Then I started to lay down layer of texture which eventually ended with the portrait seen. It was originally made for an event I did at the Saint Petersburg Museum of Art. The show paired 5 artists with 5 locally celebrated chefs to collaborate. The chef was to make a dish inspired by the work. The piece was also made in as part of an on going series of portrait works painted mostly in halftones. I like working with weather old wood for the unique texture it provides. With this piece I didn't want to use a single piece of wood but several to achieve a wood tile look much like the facade of an abandoned building. People should buy this piece because it hopefully speaks to them in a similar way it spoke to me when I made it. People should also buy the print because prints from 1xRUN are simply put, fucking awesome!" - Bask

Purchase Wetland Powers Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY Hand-Pulled on Cream Speckletone Fine Art Paper Limited Edition Artwork Obey Pop Culture Artist. 2023 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 550 Artwork Size 18x24 Silkscreen Print "This Wetland Powers print examines the repercussions of a Supreme Court largely in the pockets of big oil. The government is supposed to create the greatest good for the greatest number of people. Still, the conservative justices in the current Supreme Court have put the agendas of big oil and wealthy property owners ahead of safe and clean water for the citizenry. The concept of "common assets"… no one owns resources like air and water and needs to be protected for the benefit of all, seems lost on many people in business and government. It is up to us as voters to elect representatives who put the needs of the citizens first. The Supreme Court makeup is always important to consider when voting for our president since the sitting president selects appointees for Supreme Court justices." -Shepard Fairey- OBEY Shepard Fairey's "Wetland Powers": A Statement in Street Pop Art In street pop art, Shepard Fairey stands as a figure of monumental influence; his work is often intertwined with solid socio-political messages.

Pop art, street art, and graffiti art are dynamic genres that have left a notable impact on contemporary visual culture, with the face and head often emerging as central themes. This motif, universally recognized and instantly engaging, has been utilized by artists for its potent ability to convey a myriad of emotions, messages, and identities. The bold, provocative world of pop art first began to champion the face and head in the mid-20th century. Icons such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein used this motif to challenge cultural norms, presenting familiar faces - often celebrities - in unexpected ways. Warhol's multicolored depictions of Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and other celebrities, for instance, elevated these figures to the status of mass-produced commodities, critiquing the consumerist culture of the time. Lichtenstein, on the other hand, drew from comic books, using the exaggerated expressions of his characters to comment on society's emotional sterility. Street art and graffiti, which originated from the urban underground, have also widely employed the face and head motif. These art forms often serve as a platform for social and political commentary, and the face's universality makes it a powerful tool for artists to communicate with their audience. Banksy, an anonymous England-based street artist, often uses stenciled images of faces and heads to articulate messages of peace, rebellion, or social justice. On walls, buildings, and streets, these faces become a form of visual language that transcends boundaries, resonating with diverse audiences. In the realm of graffiti art, the face and head motif often emerges in the form of tags, throw-ups, and pieces. Notably, the stylized signatures or 'tags' of graffiti artists frequently incorporate face-like elements, signifying the artist's identity in a cryptic yet visually compelling manner. Artists such as SEEN and Dondi White have showcased their unique vision through the depiction of faces and heads, highlighting their individuality amidst the vast graffiti landscape. From the stylized and glamorous portraits of pop art to the raw and rebellious depictions in street and graffiti art, the face and head motif has remained a constant. It serves as a conduit for human emotion and identity, speaking volumes about the society in which it is embedded. Through the different lenses of pop, street, and graffiti art, the face and head motif continues to challenge, provoke, and captivate, making it a cornerstone of these vibrant art movements.
