Overview

From Obey to Obama and all that s in between, Supply & Demand, The Art of Shepard Fairey - 20th Anniversary Edition expands upon the previous version of this book and adds 100 new pages of illustrations and text to showcase Fairey s entire body of work, a massive retrospective covering 20 colorful years.

Recently thrust into the spotlight for his image of President-elect Barack Obama, Fairey helped catalyze a movement from his unique vantage at the intersection of art, popular culture and politics. The book includes versions of the image as well as a copy of correspondence from the soon-to-be President himself thanking Mr. Fairey for his support.

Through the lens of esteemed writers and critics such as Carlo McCormick, Steven Heller, Henry Rollins, Rob Walker, Roger Gastman and more, readers can learn about Shepard Fairey, the roots of the omnipresent OBEY street art campaign, his design practice and prolific gallery exhibitions.

This massive book pulls no punches and all areas of the enigmatic artist's work, travels and travails are illuminated. From exhibitions, posters, flyers, silkscreens and stickers to high altitude pursuits, citations and police beatings, it's all documented in a museum quality layout and binding. The evidence is in, and it's clear that Shepard Fairey is not one to rest on his laurels, the work must go on. For both long time fans wanting the complete collection and those just curious to know what this OBEY business is all about, Supply and Demand is the answer.
