OBEY THE GIANT – The Shepard Fairey Story

If there’s one artist from our generation who captured the world through ink, print and paint, then it has to go to fellow skater/music lover Shepard Fairey. A new 20minute film has been released overnight online based on the true story of Shepard’s first act of street art during his time at Rhode Island School of Design from 1989-1992.

It’s bizarre to see Shepard acted out in this way but if films based on real life float your boat and you are genuinely interested in his back story of how Obey Giant came about then press play. In reaction to this film, Fairey has said this week: “While I approve of the film, please note, I had no creative or financial involvement in the making of this film.”
