Shepard Faireys Revolution-Box Sets

Shepard „Obey Giant“ Fairey hatte von März bis April eine Ausstellung seiner Cover-Artworks laufen und die Arbeiten daraus gibt's jetzt als Prints in zwei superlimitierten Box-Sets für nur 950$ pro Stück. Und weil sich das keiner leisten kann, hat er alle Artworks in okayer Auflösung online gestellt: Party At The Moontower Box Set, Dance Floor Riot Box Set, hier mehr Infos zu den Sets, Hypebeast hat ein paar Bilder aus der Ausstellung.

Long before I knew about art galleries or even street art, I was excited about album cover art, if only because it was the visual counterpart to the music on the records I loved. Album covers conjured a euphoric association with the listening experience. Most of my earliest home-made tee shirts were stencils based on punk album covers… No matter how much I love art, or try to convince myself of its relevance in society, the fact remains that music is a lot cooler and way more able to reach people’s hearts and minds… but I’m a populist and I look at it this way: I may not play an instrument, but I’m gonna rock it hard as nails anyway. With my art I try to capture the same energy and spirit that makes music so powerful and democratic. REVOLUTIONS is a celebration of all the great music and accompanying art that has inspired me over the years.
