  • Idiocracy Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Shepard Fairey- OBEY Idiocracy Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Idiocracy Limited Edition 4-Color Hand-Pulled Silkscreen Print on Fine Art Paper by Shepard Fairey, Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. 2016 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 550 Artwork Size 18x24 Silkscreen Print "I’ve always felt that art, entertainment, and humor can be the best delivery vehicles for social commentary, so I love the way humor is used in “Idiocracy” to make the social critique more digestible. The movie is a harsh but necessary indictment of the anti-intellectual culture and politics that seem to become the norm more and more everyday. The film is great in a cautionary way and has an enjoyable irony being a somewhat low-brow piece of entertainment about the perils of succumbing to a cultural rejection of anything intellectual or high-brow. In other words, the genius of the film is that it may actually get through to the audience it should reach, rather than just preaching to the intellectual elite" -Shepard Fairey- OBEY Shepard Fairey's "Idiocracy" limited edition print encapsulates the convergence of pop culture and social critique through the lens of contemporary art. Renowned for his subversive street art and graphic designs, Fairey extends his canvas to fine art paper in this 2016 artwork, limited to 550 signed and numbered pieces. The 18x24 silkscreen print features a four-color palette and is a tangible expression of Fairey’s dedication to using art as a medium for commentary on societal issues. Drawing inspiration from Mike Judge's satirical film "Idiocracy," Fairey's print is not only a visual tribute but also a critique of the film’s themes—depicting the troubling rise of anti-intellectualism and the cultural dismissal of enlightenment and sophistication. Fairey himself praises the film's use of humor to present its social criticism in a more palatable form, creating a space for reflection rather than alienation. His artwork captures the film’s ironic humor, using a brain under the guise of a vending machine product—emblematic of commodification and the oversimplification of complex ideas. This print, like many of Fairey’s works, is imbued with a sense of urgency and a call to awareness. It encapsulates the artist's view that the realms of art, humor, and entertainment can effectively intersect to deliver powerful messages about the current state of society. Fairey’s "Idiocracy" is not merely a piece to be admired for its aesthetic appeal, but a statement piece that encapsulates the pressing cultural narrative around the value of intelligence and the dangers of its rejection in public discourse. The visual elements of the print—the juxtaposition of a brain with a hand grenade, the stark and commanding typography, and the bold colors—are characteristic of Fairey's style. They are employed here not only to draw the eye but also to provoke thought, embodying the essence of graffiti and street art as tools for social engagement. In a culture increasingly leaning towards anti-intellectual sentiment, Fairey’s "Idiocracy" stands as a critical beacon in modern pop art, reminding viewers of the power of art as a reflective and transformative force.

Signed by Shepard Fairey. Numbered edition of 100. Jim Marshall's photograph of a coal mining family in Hazard, Kentucky, taken while he lived with them, says a lot with what it shows, which is a mother and two children huddled together in support of each other, but it says just as much with what it lacks. There is a conspicuous absence of material necessities and a father. I don't know whether the father was working in a coal mine when the photograph was taken or had potentially died young because of the health risks of working under dangerous conditions, but it is clear that the family is struggling and lacking.

Hand-pulled 18 x 24" screenprint. Printed on 290gsm Arches Rag paper with deckled edges. Each print is signed and numbered. Limited edition of 125. The visuality of Cleon Peterson's work is based on a variety of influences, from ancient Greek pottery to comics, resulting in monochromacy and strong color symbolism. In more detail, the figures exist on multiple straight lines, something that, subsequently, creates the illusion that the artwork is divided in levels. The perspective and the impression of depth do moderately exist in the art of Peterson and, just like in Greek vases, the background space is usually left empty or slightly embellished.

"Never Trust A Punk" stands as a testament to Reid's unparalleled ability to intertwine art with cultural and political discourse. This piece, crafted in 2019, distinctly captures the punk ethos that rose to prominence in the late 1970s, becoming a hallmark of Reid's aesthetic. "Never Trust A Punk" is not merely an artwork but a statement, a proclamation that showcases Reid's characteristic blend of satire, dissent, and visual appeal. The juxtaposition of the iconic Union Jack with a stark portrayal of the British monarch, her eyes concealed, boldly encapsulates the rebellious spirit of the time. The message is clear, echoing sentiments of distrust and rebellion, which were rampant during the punk movement. This artwork holds an even deeper resonance for music enthusiasts and followers of British punk rock. The imagery bears a striking resemblance to that used for the cover of "God Save the Queen" by The Sex Pistols in 1977, a track that stirred controversy and remains emblematic of the punk era. As a limited edition giclee print, only 300 pieces of "Never Trust A Punk" were ever produced. Each print is immaculately rendered on premium 290gsm Hahnemühle bamboo paper, a medium chosen for its ability to capture the vibrancy and detail of the original artwork. Measuring at 32.3 x 22.8 inches, each piece is hand-signed and numbered by Reid, solidifying its authenticity and making it a coveted item for collectors and art enthusiasts alike.

At the time, I wanted to address the very unique situation we were in as a country as we faced the Covid-19 pandemic, unrest around police brutality and racial discrimination, voter suppression, and intense political division. We are still facing all of those things, though the development of Covid vaccines has significantly improved public safety and benefitted the fight to end the pandemic. In this illustration, the usually clear-cut rebel symbol of a bandana covering a face takes on a different meaning during Covid, becoming an emblem of safety, respect for one’s fellow citizens, and a sign that the wearer believes in science." -Shepard Fairey The "Just Future Rising" is a striking silkscreen print by Shepard Fairey, an artist renowned for his profound impact on street and pop art through the OBEY series. This limited edition artwork, measuring 18 by 24 inches, was released on June 23, 2021, in a numbered series of 450 pieces. Each print is hand-pulled, utilizing four colors on fine speckle tone paper, highlighting Fairey's signature style that merges art with social commentary. This piece is an extension of his engagement with contemporary issues, as it initially accompanied the Time magazine “VOTE” cover crafted in the lead-up to the 2020 election. Fairey's work consistently echoes themes of political activism and cultural critique, and "Just Future Rising" is a vivid representation of that ethos. The image reflects the turbulent climate of its creation: a nation grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic, societal upheaval stemming from racial injustice, the challenges to democracy through voter suppression, and deep-seated political polarization. In this print, the image of a woman with a bandana covering her face symbolizes a multifaceted narrative—transforming a traditional sign of rebellion into a symbol of safety and solidarity in the face of a public health crisis. The bandana, adorned with intricate patterns, carries a badge that reads "The Future is Unwritten," reinforcing the message that change is possible and the future is in the hands of the people. Fairey's choice to depict the bandana, a classic rebel icon, as a protective mask denotes a profound shift in cultural symbols due to the pandemic. It reflects a respect for science and an acknowledgment of the collective effort required to navigate the crisis. The artwork transcends mere aesthetics, embodying the message that caring for one's community and being considerate of public health are now acts of rebellion in their own right. This resonates deeply with the artist's long-standing commitment to using his craft to support social and political change. In the portfolio of Shepard Fairey's creations, "Just Future Rising" is not just a piece of pop artwork; it is a cultural artifact born out of an era defined by upheaval and a call to action. It stands as a reminder of the power of art to influence discourse, inspire action, and reflect the complexities of the human experience in times of adversity.

Signed & Numbered, Bias by Numbers 30 inches by 42 inches Edition of 89 June 3, 2019 “Bias by Numbers” addresses racial bias in policing, criminal justice, and media culture. Racial bias in policing and criminal justice has a long history, including stats like – black people being five times more likely to be stopped and searched than white people, and four times more likely to be subjected to unnecessary use of force, or four times more likely to be killed by the police when unarmed. The statistics revealing racial bias in prosecution and sentencing are compelling as well. Though recreational drug use is equally common in both predominantly black communities and predominantly white communities, convictions for drug possession are almost six times higher for blacks. Blacks frequently receive longer prison sentences than whites contributing to African Americans being incarcerated at more than five times the rate of whites.

Signed & Numbered Screen Print OPEN MINDS 36 inches by 24 inches Edition of 675 February 3, 2022 Handling Creases to Bottom Left & Right Margins. This “Open Minds” print references the language used by the powerful fuel industry lobby to soften political and public resistance to fracking. Fracking is a form of gas extraction which beyond the carbon impact of the gas itself, contaminates groundwater, pollutes the air, and creates strains on water resources because of the high volume of water required for the fracking process. Open-mindedness about any of those detrimental impacts of fracking and other fossil fuel extraction is absurd if one cares about the environment, air and water quality, and global warming. Powerful corporations and their lobbyists spend exorbitant sums to distract from and discredit the science-based conversation about the environment. I’m all for open minds and open eyes when it comes to putting science and the welfare of the planet before corporate profits. A portion of the proceeds from this print will benefit Greenpeace to support its work to enhance environmental protections and combat climate change. – Shepard

I hope this collaboration between Shepard and myself can raise awareness about the long history of anti-Asian hate and the important legacy of Vincent Chin whose untimely death in 1982 galvanised the people to demand Asian American civil rights. This current crucial moment in history calls for a gathering of momentum where Asian diaspora voices should go loud and proud. To stand together, advocate for change and collectively build bridges of understanding over glass ceilings and walls of hate. -Gordon Cheung

    Eyes On The King Verdict 4-Color Hand-Pulled Limited Edition Silkscreen Print on Fine Speckletone Art Paper by Shepard Fairey x Ted Soqui Rare Street Art OBEY Pop Artwork Artist. 2022 Signed by Shepard Fairey & Ted Soqui, Numbered 18x24 inches. Screenprint on thick cream Speckletone paper. Numbered edition of 600. "I based this “Eyes on the King Verdict” print on photos taken by Ted Soqui during the LA riots of spring 1992. Ted has a long history of photographing activists and protests, which began after the “not guilty” verdicts on April 29, 1992, for the four officers who severely beat Rodney King. I especially love the central pic of a young woman protester in a Malcolm X hat contemplating the scene. I think it is important to consider the symbolic weight of the Rodney King verdict and the emotional impact on communities of color seeking justice and accountability. At the time, 30 years ago, I remember feeling enraged that such a blatant act of police brutality was going unpunished when it was captured on video. It is heartbreaking how frequently similar acts of violence and abuse of power by law enforcement have gone unpunished, even when caught on camera. I don’t ever condone violence or looting, but I understand why LA erupted in riots and protests after the King verdict. When people feel that the American system has failed them repeatedly, things can reach a boiling point. The urge to protest injustice and the right to do so are legitimate, even if looting is not legitimate. The LA riots were a tragic mixture. However, beware of those who try to conflate protest with “criminal agitation” or “inciting a riot.” When the system fails the people, it is nothing short of patriotic for the people to protest for a solution. Ted Soqui and I both signed the “Eyes on the King Verdict” print.” – Shepard

Government & Politics Street Pop Art & Graffiti Artwork

Artistic Commentary on Government and Politics in Street Pop Art

Street pop art and graffiti artwork have long served as a visual language for political discourse and social commentary. The inherently public and accessible nature of these art forms makes them powerful tools for artists to express their views on government and politics. Whether splashed across city walls or displayed in galleries, these works often reflect the artists' perspectives on the political climate, societal issues, and power dynamics. The relationship between government and politics and street pop art is symbiotic. On one hand, the art form often thrives under the radar of official scrutiny, its rebellious streak a response to perceived overreach or authoritarian tendencies. On the other hand, it can serve as a sanctioned medium for political messaging, especially in more liberal societies that embrace public art as a form of civic engagement. Artists utilize this platform to spark debate, challenge authority, and inspire political action, sometimes at significant personal risk.

The Impact of Street Art on Political Expression

Street art's ability to reach a broad audience outside of traditional art venues makes it an incredibly effective means of political expression. Murals and installations often become local landmarks, drawing attention to the issues they portray and making political discourse a part of everyday life. The visual strategies employed by street artists—such as parody, satire, and symbolism—can distill complex political messages into impactful imagery that resonates with the viewer on an intuitive level. The political influence of street pop art and graffiti can be seen in its use by movements seeking to democratize public space and challenge dominant narratives. The art form's agility in adapting to the changing political landscape allows it to address immediate concerns and react to current events faster than traditional forms of political commentary. Its impact is magnified by the advent of social media, where images of political street art can go viral, reaching international audiences and becoming symbols of resistance and solidarity.

Street Pop Art as a Chronicle of Political Change

Over the decades, street pop art has chronicled the ebb and flow of political change from the protest movements of the 1960s to the present day. It often provides historical snapshots of the public sentiment during times of political upheaval. In societies undergoing rapid transformation or conflict, street art can document the aspirations and frustrations of the populace, often serving as a barometer for social tension. This art form also raises questions about the ownership and use of public space. By taking art out of the private realm and into the communal, street artists challenge the idea that government and authorities have ultimate control over visual and cultural expressions in public areas. This act of reclaiming space is a political statement, affirming the right to free expression and participation in the civic dialogue.
In summary, street pop art and graffiti artwork occupy a unique position at the intersection of art, politics, and public discourse. By engaging directly with the community and utilizing public spaces as canvases, these art forms democratize access to political expression and empower individuals and movements to communicate their messages powerfully and poignantly. As governments and politics evolve, so will the art that reflects and often challenges them, maintaining its role as a vital voice in the ongoing conversation about power, policy, and the people.
