Shepard Fairey Raise The Caliber Rise Above Posters Release

Obey Giant will be releasing two new posters by Shepard Fairey next week that address a huge problem in this country.

Shepard explains the prints:
“I’m always on board to help out a program that can make something beautiful out of something so raw and threatening. I think creative literal transformation is a great metaphor for spiritual transformation toward peace and harmony. I’m collaborating with the Caliber Foundation because I wholly believe in the ideology of the organization – to offer support to victims, families and communities that have been devastated by illegal gun violence.  As a culture we hear about guns all too often, but there is an insidious amount of ILLEGAL guns that are making their way into people’s hands without any regulation or control.” – Shepard
 Raise The Caliber & Rise Above posters are both 18 x 24 inch screen print on cream speckle tone paper.  Signed and numbered edition of 350 each.  A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Caliber Foundation.

Release date will be Tuesday, December 29, 2015 at 10am in the Store.
