Shepard Fairey The Music of David Lynch Poster Release

Be it the synthesized echo of the Twin Peaks theme song, the Angelo Badalamenti score to Blue Velvet or Mulholland Drive’s “Llorando,” David Lynch deploys music in his work to stirring effect, creating layers of meanings in a sequence of melancholic minor chords or startled key changes. On April 1, the David Lynch Foundation celebrates its 10th Anniversary with The Music of David Lynch, an exploration of the director’s use of immersive and ambient sound in his films, Twin Peaks and original catalog. All proceeds benefit the non-profit Foundation to bring Transcendental Meditation to at-risk populations suffering with PTSD.

Shepard Fairey on the poster : 
I’m a big fan of David Lynch’s movies, art, and music so I was excited to be asked to create an image for the David Lynch Foundation, his Transcendental Meditation organization. This is the second time that I was asked to make something for the foundation, I also did the image for the David Lynch Foundation benefit concert featuring Paul McCartney at Radio City Music Hall back in 2009.
I think David is a unique personality as well as someone with a unique look.  It is great to try to capture him in an illustration because he is such an icon.  This is a solid organization to support, so if you purchase the print consider it as a win-win, you get a poster and support a worthwhile cause.
The lineup for “The Music of David Lynch” is awesome, so check it out next Wednesday, April 1 at The Ace Theater in downtown Los Angeles. There are a very limited number of the VIP tickets left.  -Shepard
The poster is 18 x 24 inch screen print on cream speckle tone paper.  Signed and numbered edition of 2100. 
Release date: April 1, 2015.  100 Prints will be available in the Obey Giant store at random time between 10 am and 11am PST in PRINTS.
