"Earth Crisis" encapsulates 25 years of Shepard Fairey’s work focused on environmental themes, from its recent manifestation as a globe suspended from the Eiffel Tower to posters, murals and prints. "Earth Crisis" includes two oversized volumes in a slip-case. Volume one contains more than one hundred pages encapsulating Fairey’s entire ouvre of environmentally focused work. Volume two is a massive board-bound 10-print set, suitable for display either intact or as frame-worthy stand alone pieces.
“My political stance on protecting the planet is driven by my concern for the quality of life for future generations.” Shepard Fairey
About the artist:
Shepard Fairey is the man behind OBEY GIANT, the graphics that have changed the way people see art and the urban landscape. What started with an absurd sticker he created in 1989 while a student at the Rhode Island School of Design has since evolved into a worldwide street art campaign, as well as an acclaimed body of fine art. In 2003, Fairey founded Studio Number One, a creative design firm dedicated to applying his ethos at the intersection of art and enterprise.
Fairey’s art reached a new height of prominence in 2008, when his “HOPE” portrait of Barack Obama became the iconic image of the presidential campaign and helped inspire an unprecedented political movement. The original image now hangs in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
