Burger #86 – Obey Style


Burger365 Has a Posse…

Here is my tribute to Shepard Fairey’s OBEY GIANT campaign which he called “an experiment in phenomenology.”  Unless you have been living under a rock, you have seen the iconic Andre the Giant image with the words “OBEY” underneath.  Although the campaign and Shepard’s artwork have been around for a while, he gained international fame for his Barack Obama Hope poster that coincided with the 2008 Presidential Election.  Still creating great work and featured in Bansky’s film, Exit Through the Gift Shop, Shepard also runs the Subliminal Projects Art Gallery in Los Angeles.  The gallery always exhibits the freshest art around and you can sometimes catch Shepard there on the 1’s and 2’s.  The campaign has also spawned a successful clothing line that shows off all of his street style art.  For more information, check out the website at ObeyGiant.com

    Good one! I like the bold graphic with great use of positive/negative space to create the burger. Also, good choice on the typeface — really fits in nicely. I saw that you were inspired by Skull-a-Day — another great project, and it inspired me to create more and blog about it. Not as ambitious as you guys with one a day, but making it a habit has really helped me create more. So, well done on the burgers!
