Building on Earth Crisis, Shepard Fairey approached this new body of work keeping in mind different ways to engage people through art. He created a series of six letterpress prints that will be available along with the fine art and sculpture pieces for the Earth Crisis exhibition opening this Friday, June 24 at Galerie Itinerrance in Paris, located at 24bis boulevard du Général Jean Simon 75013.
These pieces continue to address the need to protect the planet, through this powerful environmentally-themed art. Proceeds will be donated to support global environmental organization - 350.org. The lower numbered prints will be available at Galerie Itinerrance in Paris starting Friday. A very limited quantity of the letterpress prints will also be available to purchase on ObeyGiant.com, Tuesday, June 28 at 10AM PST. 100% cotton archival paper with hand-deckled edges. Signed and numbered editions of 450. 16.75 inches by 13.75 inches. OBEY publishing chop on bottom left corner. $75 Each in the Store under the Prints section. Please see original post below for details, in addition to new detail shots.
"The installation, the murals, the fine art, and the prints - they are all different platforms to put across the message that we are facing an earth crisis. I think that art is a way to engage people. Art can initiate conversations when other media fails. If a viewer likes my mural, if they like my installation, like my art pieces, that may make them consider what the image is addressing. This new body of work reflects on and builds upon, my entire history of environmentally-themed art. I hope that it appeals visually AND sparks the needed conversation about protecting our planet for future generations."-Shepard
