Famed street artist Shepard Fairey has made his mark all over the world with his signature Obey logo, which has landed in places like Tokyo, New York, Mexico City, London, Madrid and practically every nook and cranny that you would least expect to see the artists mark. I remember seeing his work in Vancouver, B.C. once, but someone decided to take it down! That was the only time I’ve seen his street art in person. Very inspiring to have finally seen something of his in person. Very bummed to see it go. Anyway, Levi’s invited Fairey to take part in the design process of a collection centered around the Obey trademark. To observe this special occasion Levi’s welcomed Shepard Fairey to their flagship store located in New York City’s Times Square district. Shepard was putting up wheatpastes in front of a very jovial crowed cramped audience in front of the Levis campus. I can’t even image how this must look in person at night with the lights of Time Square gleaming on the posters. If you can make your way to see this in person, go!
