Purchase Revolution Girl Silkscreen Print by WK Interact x Shepard Fairey- OBEY Hand-Pulled 1-Color on Speckletone Fine Art Paper Limited Edition Artwork Obey Pop Culture Artist. 2007 Signed by WK Interact & Shepard Fairey- OBEY Limited Edition of 250 Artwork Size 18x24 Silkscreen Print. No Obey/WK Revolution Girl Prints Were Numbered in This Edition, and Half of WK Did not Sign; Both Artists Signed This Artwork. Small Crease to the Lower Right Facing Corner. "Revolution Girl" is a compelling collaboration between Shepard Fairey, the founder of OBEY, and WK Interact, an artist known for his dynamic street art. This one-color silkscreen print, produced in 2007, exemplifies a confluence of two distinctive styles that have shaped the visual vocabulary of street art and pop culture. Measuring 18x24 inches and printed on Speckletone fine art paper, the piece is part of a limited edition series with only 250. Significantly, this print is dual-signed by both artists, a rarity given that not all prints from this series were signed by WK Interact, and none were numbered, adding a layer of exclusivity to this artwork. The image is a stark, high-contrast depiction that conveys a sense of urgency and defiance, characteristic of Fairey's work, blended with the kinetic energy of WK Interact's approach to street art. The piece features a figure that is an assertive and revolutionary instance, capturing the ethos of protest and empowerment. This artwork speaks to the heart of street art’s purpose—to challenge norms and inspire change through visual disruption. The presence of a small crease on the lower right-facing corner of the print is a testament to its journey and authenticity, a nod to the often impermanent and rugged life of street art. By merging their distinct artistic signatures, Fairey and WK Interact create a narrative that is both a political and aesthetic statement, resonating with the core of pop art’s intent to blur the boundaries between 'high' art and 'low' culture. "Revolution Girl" stands not just as a work of art but as a cultural artifact that encapsulates the spirit of its era, where art became a loudspeaker for social and political discourse. This print is a testament to the influence of street art in the contemporary art scene, marking its evolution from the fringes to a recognized and vital form of artistic expression that engages public consciousness.

Each has carved its distinct identity in the ever-evolving art scene, bridging the gap between street aesthetics and fine art. Their contribution to this art form has not only inspired a generation of artists but also brought street art into the global limelight. WK Interact, a French artist based in New York City, is renowned for his kinetic, motion-based black-and-white street art. His works often depict figures in motion, creating a sense of velocity and dynamism that is emblematic of urban life. The artistry goes beyond traditional graffiti as his murals often interact with the architecture and environment they are placed in, reflecting a deep connection with the urban landscape. A key concept behind his work is to capture the energy and pace of city life, turning mundane structures into a living art spectacle. "I’ve known WK for almost 25 years, but I admired his art for many years before that. When I started putting art up on the streets of NY in the early 90s, WK had some of the best murals around lower Manhattan. We’ve collaborated a few times over the years, and when I was in NYC in December, WK shot some portraits of me as part of an artist homage series. Usually, I’m uncomfortable being the subject of art pieces, but I love what he did with the final art because it merges our aesthetics very harmoniously… and my face is less of the focus!" -Shepard Fairey "In 2009, I was invited by Shepard Fairey to have a solo show at the Subliminal Project Gallery in Los Angeles. 14 years later, I have the pleasure of visiting Subliminal Projects once again… to sign a new limited edition print, on which we collaborated. I met Shepard long ago… I’ve joined him on many adventures around the world, from Berlin, Japan, NYC, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, to Paris. Early on, I realized as we were hitting the streets with paste ups, that we shared something in common and that was the constant desire to work. Shepard was the first person to contact me and extend an invitation to participate in the game. I admire how sharp he is… he forgets nothing. I’m grateful that he let me paint his portrait, but I’m mostly honored to call him my friend." –WK Interact
