AMERICANA – Shepard Fairey & Neil Young

July 23, 2012

Perry Rubenstein Gallery (LA) presents a special project by Shepard Fairey and Neil Young on the occasion of the release of Young’s new album with Crazy Horse, “Americana,” which features reinterpreted classic American folk songs. Shepard has created eleven new paintings, each one inspired by the songs such as Oh Susannah, This Land Is Your Land and Clementine.

Shepard created a portrait of Young for his May Day show back in 2010, based on his view of the musician as a social commentator philosophically aligned with people like Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, and Joe Strummer.
Shepard states, “Neil really liked the art and I was thrilled he asked me to collaborate by making paintings inspired by the songs on his “Americana” album. I’m a huge fan of Neil’s music in general, but when I heard the album I realized how much the subject matter of several songs reflected the aspirations and tragedies of those pursuing the American dream.”

Smashing it in London!

July 5, 2012

Last week was EXCEPTIONAL!!!
Shepard was in town raising the bar higher than ever at the London Pleasure Gardens while we were getting busy with shop installations, playing music, getting loose and throwing the first Obey Radio night in the UK!
Add in some BBC Breakfast TV coverage, a piece in the London Evening Standard, some flaming Sambucas and the dirtiest grimey beats our friends at Earnest Endeavours could put together, stir in some live T-Shirt printing from the UK arm of the Hit & Run Crew and mix with not a lot of sleep and you are starting to get the picture.
Before I start to tell the story I want to thank everyone who helped us last week and came out showing support for Obey and what we do xxxx

























I’ll let Shepard have the last words!!!
