  • Moon Over Biloxi Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Shepard Fairey- OBEY Moon Over Biloxi Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Moon Over Biloxi 1-Color Hand-Pulled Limited Edition Silkscreen Print on Fine Art Paper by Shepard Fairey Rare Street Art Famous Pop Artwork Artist. Signed & Numbered Moon Over Biloxi Screen Print 18 x 24 inches Edition of 400 July 27, 2010. "The title of this print “Moon Over Biloxi” is a tribute to the Dead Kennedy’s song “Moon Over Marin”. In 1984 I picked up maybe my 4th punk record which was the 2nd Dead Kennedy’s album “Plastic Surgery Disasters”. The album is a great listen all the way through and includes some blistering tunes like “Riot” and “Bleed For Me” laced with social commentary. The surprise song though is “Moon Over Marin”… detractors have called it the Dead Kennedy’s “U2” song, but I disagree. “Moon Over Marin” is more melodic than most DK, but juxtaposed with the darkness of the lyrics, the song evokes a powerful sense of existential melancholy. I think the concept that struck me, and stuck with me, is that our disrespect of each other and the planet may doom us, but things will continue without us. I think it is healthy to recognize impermanence, but also to appreciate the value of the ephemeral. Moonlight, real or electric, will probably be around, but what it will be casting light on is the real question. There will always be a moon over Biloxi." -Shepard

  • Ceci N'est Pas Une Spongebob PP Archival Print by Shark Toof

    Shark Toof Ceci N'est Pas Une Spongebob PP Archival Print by Shark Toof

    Ceci N'est Pas Une Spongebob PP Archival Print by Shark Toof Limited Edition Print on 310gsm Museum Fine Art Paper Pop Artist Modern Artwork. PP Printers Proof 2019 Signed & Marked PP Limited Edition Artwork Size 24x18 Archival Pigment Fine Art. "Ceci N'est Pas Une Spongebob, This Is Not A Spongebob" Decoding "Ceci N'est Pas Une SpongeBob" by Shark Toof "Ceci N'est Pas Une SpongeBob" is a provocative piece by the renowned street pop artist Shark Toof, challenging the boundaries of pop culture iconography within the context of modern street art. The artwork is a Printer's Proof (PP) archival print from 2019, meticulously signed and marked by the artist, denoting its status as a rare collector's item. Printed on 310gsm Museum Fine Art Paper, this piece exemplifies the high-quality medium Shark Toof employs to ensure durability and depth of color, crucial for the archival pigment fine art that this work represents. A Fusion of Street Art and Pop Culture This piece is a testament to the collision of street pop art and graffiti artwork with mainstream pop culture symbols. Shark Toof takes the universally recognized figure of SpongeBob SquarePants and distorts it, presenting an image that both acknowledges and subverts the original character. The title itself, a nod to René Magritte's "The Treachery of Images," prompts viewers to question the nature of representation and reality in art. Shark Toof's work suggests that the image of SpongeBob we see is not the character itself but a representation skewed by the artist's perspective and the cultural context in which it is viewed. Shark Toof's Artistic Commentary In "Ceci N'est Pas Une SpongeBob," Shark Toof is not simply replicating a beloved character; he is initiating a dialogue about the saturation of media icons in society and the consumption of these images. The distortion and decomposition of SpongeBob's features invite the audience to reflect on how mass media shapes and sometimes distorts our perceptions. This work captures the spirit of street pop art by using graffiti artwork's spontaneous and rebellious essence to comment on and criticize phenomena. The layered textures and vibrant colors reveal the complex relationship between commercial imagery and artistic expression. The art piece explores the tension between street art's ephemeral nature and fine art prints' enduring quality. Shark Toof bridges two seemingly disparate worlds by choosing SpongeBob, an icon from an animated children's show, and placing it in the sophisticated realm of limited edition prints. This juxtaposition challenges the viewer's understanding of what constitutes 'legitimate' art, questioning the hierarchies within the art world. Through "Ceci N'est Pas Une SpongeBob," Shark Toof contributes to the discourse on the value and significance of street pop art and graffiti artwork in contemporary culture. By recontextualizing a figure from the lexicon of popular media, he endows it with new meaning and elevates it within the art canon. This artwork is a visual spectacle with an intellectual engagement, prompting conversations about the nature of art, media's influence, and street art's power to transform and transcend ordinary objects and characters into extraordinary pieces of cultural commentary.

Ocean & Sea

Maritime Motifs in Contemporary Art

The ocean has been a boundless source of inspiration across various art forms for centuries. In the domains of pop art, street art, and graffiti, it takes on a new life, serving as both subject and symbol. Artists have harnessed the allure of the sea and the mystique of its depths to challenge viewers, provoke thought, and communicate poignant messages through their creations. The vastness of the ocean is reflective of the infinite possibilities within these art movements, enabling a diverse range of expressions, from the critique of pollution to the celebration of marine life.

Environmental Commentary through Ocean Imagery

Within the urban canvases of cities around the world, street and graffiti artists employ oceanic imagery to raise awareness about environmental concerns. These artworks often feature marine creatures entangled in plastic or oil spills, pointing to the devastating impact of human waste and chemical pollutants on oceanic ecosystems. Pop artists in galleries harness similar themes, using bright colors and familiar icons to draw attention to the need for ocean conservation. The visual shock of seeing sea life juxtaposed with symbols of human negligence brings the message home to an audience that might otherwise remain disengaged from environmental advocacy.

Street Art and Graffiti: Nautical Narratives

Graffiti and street art are particularly potent in conveying narratives of oceanic proportions. They transform public spaces into forums for dialogue, bringing the narratives of the sea to those who may have never dipped their toes in its waters. These pieces range from murals of epic underwater scenes to the intricate tagging of sea creature silhouettes, each artist contributing their unique wave to the ocean of urban expression. This form of art is transient, much like the tides themselves, often here today and gone tomorrow, which underlines the urgent message of many ocean-inspired street artworks – the fleeting beauty of our seas amidst the strain of human influence.

Cultural Currents and Pop Art's Oceans

Pop art’s treatment of ocean themes delves into the cultural currents of society, making the familiar unfamiliar and encouraging onlookers to reconsider their relationship with the marine world. Iconography like the simple wave, a ship in peril, or a bottle with a message inside, become infused with new meaning in a pop art context. This artwork might be found gracing the walls of boutique seaside cafes or the galleries of coastal cities, capturing the zeitgeist of an era increasingly concerned with the plight of our planet’s waters.

Artistic Advocacy and the Sea

The unifying thread in the depiction of oceans across these art forms is the underlying advocacy for marine preservation and environmental activism. Artists like Shepard Fairey, with his "Obey Giant" campaign, intertwine commercial iconography with messages that critique consumption and environmental disregard. This approach has been instrumental in not just beautifying spaces but in steering conversations towards the health of our oceans. The sea, with its profound beauty and depth, is a powerful protagonist in the narratives constructed by these artists, a testament to the critical role art plays in echoing the issues of our time. Each wave of artistic interpretation brings the ocean closer to those who encounter it, allowing the sea to flow through concrete jungles and into the hearts and minds of an urban populace. This body of work continues to expand, driven by the tides of creativity and the currents of social consciousness, anchoring the ocean firmly in the fabric of contemporary art.
