  • About the artwork

    My Obey Fire Sale print is a comment on the challenges any individual faces pushing for environmental and climate responsibility, especially when confronted with the massive power of fossil fuel industries whose short-sighted, profit-driven tactics include lobbying and bribing politicians who are supposed to work for the citizenry. The term “fire sale” means the liquidation of goods damaged in a fire, or it can mean a rush to sell off inventory before a bankruptcy.

    I was actually finished with this art before the record number of California wildfires broke out, but the literal fires, which climatologists say are a symptom of climate change, only amplify what I meant as a metaphorical critique of our short-sightedness which will lead to fire sales in low lying areas from Louisiana, to Florida, to Bangladesh. We need to vote and put pressure on the politicians and the corporations. The future depends on it! I’m donating proceeds from this print to The Climate Reality Project. Thanks for caring!

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.
