PP Printer Proof 2019 Signed & Numbered Blue Limited Edition of 150 3-Color Screen Print on 320gsm Natural Coventry Rag Vellum Size: 18 x 24 Inches Release: July 02, 2021. "I chose an image of Ron and Niagara where I think they both look amazing, but there was a nice balance between in-your-face aggression with Ron's pose making eye contact, holding his fist up, and Niagara's seemingly demure embrace of Ron, but anyone who knows Niagara understands that though she may look sedate, she's pulling the strings. I added a switchblade that she is caressing with her finger, as a way to amplify her femme fatale chic, and because I thought it lent itself to my original idea of a title 'Bonnie & Clyde Were Lightweights.'" – Shepard Fairey-.OBEY Niagara and Shepard Fairey's 'Tomorrow's Another Night': A Striking Silkscreen Collaboration 'Tomorrow's Another Night,' a captivating blue PP Printer's Proof silkscreen print, stands as a testament to the collaborative genius of Niagara and Shepard Fairey. This limited edition piece, hand-pulled on 320gsm Natural Coventry Rag Vellum paper, encapsulates the essence of modern street pop art and graffiti with its bold imagery and nuanced undertones. Each print, part of a limited edition run of 150, is signed and numbered, underscoring its exclusivity and the meticulous craftsmanship invested into every screen. Released on July 2, 2021, the artwork measures 18 x 24 inches, allowing intricate details and striking color contrasts to command attention. The print portrays two figures, Ron and Niagara, in a complex interplay of visual tension and harmony. Shepard Fairey's description of the piece reveals a deliberate balance between the overt aggression shown by Ron's direct eye contact and raised fist and Niagara's ostensibly gentle embrace. Yet, as Fairey notes, the true power lies with Niagara, whose understated demeanor masks a controlling presence, symbolized by the switchblade subtly caressed by her finger. This addition by Fairey amplifies the femme fatale motif and ties in with his original concept for the print, suggesting a narrative of concealed strength and influence. Exploring the Visual and Conceptual Depth of 'Tomorrow's Another Night' In creating 'Tomorrow's Another Night,' Fairey and Niagara delve into the dynamics of power, control, and the role of iconography in art. The piece's title and the imagery together weave a tale of anticipation and the recurring cycles of life's drama. The use of a limited color palette accentuates the graphic strength of the work. At the same time, the choice of a high-quality silkscreen process ensures that each color pops against the paper, offering a texture and depth that resonate with the layered meanings of the artwork. The collaboration between the two artists brings together distinct styles and perspectives, marrying the raw edge of street art with the finesse of fine art printmaking. Fairey's background in street pop art and activism and Niagara's punk rock aesthetic combine to create a print that is both a visual feast and a piece of social commentary. The contrast between Ron's defiant gesture and Niagara's subtle dominance challenges traditional gender narratives and invites viewers to look beyond appearances to the complex stories beneath. Cultural Significance and Artistic Legacy of the Print 'Tomorrow's Another Night' is more than just a piece of art; it is a cultural artifact that captures a moment in the evolution of street art and its intersection with pop culture. The collaboration between Niagara and Shepard Fairey represents a bridging of generational talents, fusing the spirit of punk rock with contemporary street art to create something nostalgic and fresh. The Printer's Proof status of the print adds to its cultural weight, as these proofs are typically reserved for the artist's and printer's archives, representing the gold standard of the print edition. Collectors and enthusiasts of street pop art and graffiti artwork value PP editions for their closeness to the artist's original intent and the fine quality of the print. In essence, 'Tomorrow's Another Night' is a shining example of the vibrant and transformative power of collaboration in street pop art and graffiti.

  • Let There Be Dark Red Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY x Niagara

    Shepard Fairey- OBEY Let There Be Dark Red Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY x Niagara

    Let There Be Dark Red Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY x Niagara Hand-Pulled 3-Color on 320gsm Natural Coventry Rag Vellum Fine Art Paper Limited Edition Artwork Obey Pop Culture Artist. 2019 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 150 Artwork Size 24x18 Silkscreen Print "I chose an image of Ron and Niagara where I think they both look amazing, but there was a nice balance between in-your-face aggression with Ron's pose making eye contact, holding his fist up, and Niagara's seemingly demure embrace of Ron, but anyone who knows Niagara understands that though she may look sedate, she's pulling the strings. I added a switchblade that she is caressing with her finger, as a way to amplify her femme fatale chic, and because I thought it lent itself to my original idea of a title 'Bonnie & Clyde Were Lightweights'" -Shepard Fairey- OBEY Exploring the Bold Realms of "Let There Be Dark" by Shepard Fairey: A Street Pop Art Icon Shepard Fairey's "Let There Be Dark Red Silkscreen Print" is a striking embodiment of the symbiotic relationship between street pop art and contemporary visual culture. This limited edition piece, created in collaboration with Niagara, is a visual narrative encapsulating the energy and subversive undercurrents that course through this artistic movement. As a hand-pulled 3-color print on 320gsm Natural Coventry Rag Vellum fine art paper, it stands as a testament to Fairey's mastery over the medium and his unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of street art into the delicate art sphere. Produced in 2019, the artwork is part of a highly exclusive series, with only 150 signed and numbered editions available. The dimensions of the artwork, 24x18 inches, are significant not only for their visual impact but also for their ability to draw the viewer into the confrontational yet poised dynamic that defines the composition. Fairey's choice of subjects, Ron and Niagara, is particularly telling; their depictions are rendered with a stark contrast of black, white, and a commanding red, highlighting their iconic stances and the charged atmosphere they embody. Fairey's narrative intention behind "Let There Be Dark" is as compelling as the visual force of the artwork. In his words, he captures the essence of Ron and Niagara's personas, juxtaposing Ron's aggressive frontality with Niagara's seemingly delicate yet cunning disposition. The addition of a switchblade subtly caressed by Niagara adds a layer of danger and a nod to the femme fatale archetype. This imagery is not merely decorative; it is a deliberate act to challenge and subvert the viewer's expectations, a hallmark of Fairey's style that has cemented his place in street pop art and graffiti artwork. The title, "Let There Be Dark," invites interpretation, playing on the biblical phrase "Let there be light," suggesting a reversal or an embrace of shadow and complexity over simplicity and illumination. This reversal is symbolic of the more significant cultural critique often found in Fairey's work, where the binaries of good and evil, light and dark, are not just questioned but also deconstructed. Beyond the visual and thematic layers, the print's collectibility is further enhanced by its fine art attributes. The use of Coventry Rag Vellum fine art paper, known for its durability and smooth texture, ensures that the colors' vibrancy and the lines' precision remain intact over time. The paper choice reflects Fairey's nuanced understanding of materials and their role in elevating street art to OK art status. Shepard Fairey's "Let There Be Dark Red Silkscreen Print" is an authentic representation of the spirit of street pop art. It bridges the gap between street art's raw expressiveness and silkscreen printing's calculated precision. With its limited edition status and the artist's signature, the print is not just a piece of art; it is a cultural artifact that captures the pulse of contemporary society and the ongoing dialogue between street art and the mainstream art world. It is a vivid example of how street pop art continues to shape and influence our visual language and cultural conversations.
