Some days ago, i actually wrote about the European Invasion by Obey aka Shepard Fairey with some really nice photos of his poster actions in London, Paris and Amsterdam.
Today I found this nice video of that action days. It includes a small statement by Obey and a lot of nice impressions from the streets.
I started in 1989 with that images of “André the Giant”, the wrestler, just as an inside-joke with some friends. But I really want it to put across the idea of an image, calling the use of public space in the question.
And I wanted to use a word with the image that really makes people think about the agenda of everything they’re confronted with. So I started to use the word “Obey”. And “Obey” is really reverse-psychology…
