    Oeuvre signée, datée et numérotée par Shepard Fairey.
    Effet or pailleté, état parfait, neuf.
    Edition de 550.

    My Obey "Fire Sale" est un commentaire sur les défis que chaque individu doit relever en matière de responsabilité environnementale et climatique, en particulier face à la puissance des industries des combustibles fossiles dont les tactiques imprévoyantes comprennent le lobbying et la corruption des hommes politiques. L'expression « Fire Sale» désigne la liquidation de biens endommagés par un incendie qui peut entraîner une ruée sur la vente des stocks avant la faillite. Le nombre record de feux de forêt en Californie cet été m'a inspiré cette oeuvre, mais les climatologues disent que les incendies littéraux ne font qu'amplifier ce que je voulais dire par une critique métaphorique de notre myopie.

    "Fire Sale" dans les zones basses de la Louisiane, en Floride, au Bangladesh. Nous devons voter et faire pression sur les politiciens et les entreprises. L'avenir en dépend !

    - Shepard

Shepard Fairey (Obey)

Born in: 1970 United States

Famous artist


Shepard Fairey alias Obey was born in 1970 in Charleston, US.

He gets to know the universe of graphic design very early, at age 14, when he draws images to be printed on t-shirts and skateboards. He is influenced by the work of artists such as Andy Warhol or Russian artist Alexander Rodtchenko.

In the late 1980s, Obey and a group of friends from the Rhode Island School of Design create a series of stickers and posters with the figure of wrestler Andre the Giant and stick thousands of them on the walls of American cities. Andre the Giant Has a Posse is one of the first and most important "viral" Street Art campaigns, showing the ability and force of this new illegal means of expression.

His work became world famous during the U.S. presidential campaign in 2008, with the creation of the poster HOPE of Barack Obama that became an icon of the campaign. The Institute of contemporary art in Boston considered Obey as one of the best and most influential street artists of our time.
