LISTEN TO CHUCK D AND SHEPARD FAIREY…
“Shepard says I’ve inspired him, but he’s inspired me. Artists need to connect and collaborate. Lift each other up, when we can. This isn’t our first print together. But it’s the first one we’ve done since the US is turning and folks are in the streets. The world is a different place now, but art is still important.”
“Chuck D has long been a hero of mine as founder and leader of Public Enemy. He’s s an outspoken social and political voice, and activist. Chuck’s lyrics always spoke truth to power. He is a trailblazer and true original. Public Enemy created a lane in music that few have had the guts to travel. I’m always looking for excuses to collaborate with Chuck and celebrate his influence on me and culture in general.
I was very happy to be asked to participate in his upcoming art show ‘The Terrordome’ and create a new colorway of my first portrait of Chuck. The art show at Black Book Gallery in Denver will now be online because of COVID-19, more information is coming on that, but the ‘Chuck D: Fight the Power’ print will be available June 30 on store.obeygiant.com.
If you don’t own Public Enemy’s ‘It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back,’ or ‘Fear of a Black Planet,’ listen to them and witness what music at the pinnacle of its sonic, political, and revolutionary potential can be. Proceeds from this print will go to Black Lives Matter Greater NYC. All prints signed by Shepard and Chuck D. Thanks for the inspiration, Chuck!”
