Obey slice it up

Shepard Fairey will be releasing a new print next Thursday January 9.
Slice It Up, inspired by Punk aesthetics, is a 18 x 24 inch screen print which comes signed and numbered edition of 100.  Shepard Fairey explain the idea as follows:

“Some of my earliest inspiration in art and design comes from Punk and Post-Punk album art as well as the do-it-yourself ethos of the movements themselves.  I love that Punk was not about virtuosity, but ingenuity, creativity, attitude, and fearlessness. If you don’t like it, rip it up, or slice it up, and start over. Malcolm McLaren once told me “be prolific, not precious”… words to live by.”

Slice it Up will be available HERE next Thursday at a random time between 10am and 12 noon PST for $45 each.
