      Film/Edit: http://www.BrettNovak.com / http://youtube.com/BRAGIC Several months ago I was commissioned by the Halsey Institute out of Charleston, South Carolina to shoot a short film on the infamous street artist behind OBEY: Shepard Fairey. I definitely knew Shepard's work, whether it be that repetitive face of Andre the Giant popping up at every street corner I've ever been on, or as the Obama Poster that definitely did more for an election than just add aesthetic to it - but I was not aware at how incredibly inspiring Shepard would turn out to be. For a new understanding of how this skateboarder turned mega famed street star turned out to be, check this film out.

          Introducing the American artist Shepard Fairey is a bit like explaining whose portrait he famously altered for the "Hope" campaign that was widely used by Barack Obama's supporters in 2008. Since the mid 1980s he has created outstanding (then: street) art that is strong, iconic and expressive. Shepard Fairey is also a thoughtful, committed, and outspoken activist who revives the artistic virtues of standing up for the freedom of speech and fighting for rational and non-corporate ways of dealing with the issue of copyright. Obey the interview we did with him in Los Angeles in late 2010! Watch our complete archive of films on www.gestalten.tv!

            In late July of 2011, Shepard Fairey and his team headed to Copenhagen for a solo exhibition at the V1 Gallery. We decided to document the trip in hopes of capturing a behind the scenes look into the preparation for the show. The show itself was a huge success but a lot of crazy stuff happened along the way. The following videos are a very honest look at the highs and lows of the experience. We hope you enjoy it.

              On February 8th 2014 in celebration of the release of the OBEY X Suicidal Tendencies collection we threw a party in Amsterdam. At Ludwig nightclub we had live performances by Death Alley and The Local Spastics accompanied by DJ's Father Futureback and Hugo (Red Light Radio). The place was packed and things got pretty wild. The Local Spastics is a young punk rock band that started around 2010. After a first demo that takes you back to the sound of seventies punk and reminds you of bands like The Dead Boys, The stooges and FEAR, the trio quickly built up quite a reputation with their aggressive live shows, politically incorrect behavior and sarcastic lyrics. Dozens of shows follow in and out of the Netherlands. Playing In squats and on festivals, with bands like Reagan Youth, Gewapend Beton and Aux Raus. Fresh from the basements of Amsterdam, DEATH ALLEY is here to show you a serious musical rock’n roll statement. DEATH ALLEY combines ingenious but blistering guitar parts with and intensity of drumming that justifies the present-day existence of John Bonham’s Vista-Lite drum kit. Drums, guitar and the thundering bass riffs are topped off with husky vocals that remind you of nothing. The New Wave of Dutch Loudness gave birth to not just another band. No, thriving on the sharp edges of Motörhead’s rock and roll, soaked in MC5-fuelled protopunk and forged with Sabbath’s edginess, DEATH ALLEY brings a unique swinging rawness that savours of Blue Öyster Cult on steroids.

                This South Park, San Diego landmark came about as part of the Museum of Contemporary Art 2010 show, Viva La Revolucion. Fairey, one of today's most influential graphic artists, was among 20 different artists adding to the urban visual landscape throughout San Diego during the MOCA show. The mural image he created, at Public's Ivy Street building, 2202 30th St., has become a piece of the neighborhood identity. The clean facade of cement block has become a giant canvas graced with the serene image of a young Buddhist monk, surrounded by detailed gold tapestry. The process is documented with artist interviews & commentary as the building and the neighborhood are enlivened & transformed. If you haven’t seen Public’s Ivy Street building and the mural in South Park, check out this intriguing story & then head over to see it in person. A lasting piece of beauty indeed, including the mural. credits// client// JIM BROWN www.publicdigital.com exhibition// VIVA LA REVOLUCION www.mcasandiego.org artisit// SHEPARD FAIREY www.obeygiant.com music// TEEBS www.myspace.com/​teeeb Director | Cinematographer | Editor// JASON KANTOR www.jasonkantor.com Graphics// DAVID LIVELY www.livelyandsons.com

                  Recently Shepard headed out to New York City to take part in the Jonathan Levine Gallery sponsored event 10 Years of Wooster Collective: 2003-2013, a group exhibition featuring over 50 local and international street artists. The temporary space located in the Chelsea district was curated by Marc and Sara Schiller, and featured works highlighting the ephemeral art scene ever-present in the five boroughs of New York. For the fully packed exhibition, Shepard prepared three classic 3-face series works in a variety of colors, featuring more than five layers of abstract texturing on each piece. Throughout the night, numerous legendary street artists were seen walking around signing autographs and taking photos with admiring fans and fellow artists alike. Additionally, Shepard painted a peace and justice themed mural in Dumbo (District Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass). Wooster Collective was founded in 2001 with a genuine desire to share images of the city being transformed by street art with the rest of the world. In the curators' words, "While street artists express themselves in a myriad of ways, they are often joined by a set of common principles: reclaiming public space, beautifying the environment and fighting for the freedom of speech. Street art has become the catalyst for people of all cultural and economic backgrounds to challenge the system and express themselves without any filter." The website woostercollective.com followed in 2003, and has seen a rise in popularity by organizing such monumental events such as 11 Spring Street, an art exhibition in an abandoned building with The New York Times named as one of the top art exhibits of the year.

                    In November of 2013, The Obey crew traveled to Malaga, Spain where we painted a 7 story mural next to the Comtemporary Art Center. D*Face and his boys came through as well to paint the other 7 story wall on an adjacent tower of the building. After completion of the mural the crew was able to hit some street spots, soak up the sights and sticker desirable surfaces. Big thank you to Fer and his Dad, Fernando and everyone from The CAC Malaga and the to the people of Malaga.

                      The OBEY Miniramp Sessions is a project consisting of a bi-monthly series of skateboard videos, shot in the set for my new film about the early life of Shepard Fairey and the origin story of OBEY GIANT. The concept behind the project is to create a progression from video to video during which the set will slowly transform into the 1990 studio of, at the time, 20 year old Shepard Fairey. The main objective is to explore filmic styles until I find an appropriate mood for the skating scene in the OBEY movie. (This project is not directly affiliated with obey giant art, inc.)
