Shepard Fairey People’s Climate March Poster

No comments:

Details from Shepard Fairey on his new poster:  Only 3 days until the People’s Climate March!

Most of you know that I am very concerned about the dangers of climate change. Dick Cheney said “if there is even a 1% chance of a terrorist attack, we must do everything in our power to be prepared”. 95% or more of the scientific community agrees that climate change is happening, and is a dramatic threat to the planet, yet far less is being done to fight climate change than to fight terrorism.

It’s a good thing the streets of New York will be flooded soon — with hundreds of thousands of people demanding solutions to our out-of-control climate crisis. It’s both an honor and a calling of my conscience for me to contribute a poster to the People’s Climate March effort and get something urgent across about one of the biggest threats facing present and future generations. Lady Liberty and all of us are in trouble if we don’t push our leaders to take bold action.
-Shepard Fairey

The poster is 18 x 24 inch screen print on Speckletone paper.  Signed and numbered edition of 300. Proceeds go to
On sale now at Obey Giant in PRINTS.

Inner State Gallery Presents Spoiled Rotten By David “MEGGS” Hooke
An Entirely New Body Of Work From The Prolific Australian Artist

- To Join The Advanced Collector Preview Email -

Opening to the public Friday, September 19th from 6-10pm, Inner State Gallery is proud to welcome Australian artist David “MEGGS” Hooke for his solo exhibition Spoiled Rotten. The exhibition of over 40 new paintings and multiples explores the wondrous decay of social morality stemming from modern society’s obsession with pop culture and overindulgent materialism, and continues MEGGS’ perpetual fascination with dualism and finding beauty in tragedy.

The city of Detroit plays a major influence in MEGGS’ philosophy behind Spoiled Rotten, as he created an entirely new body of work during his five-week residency at Inner State Gallery and 1xRUN. The exhibition highlights Detroit as an inspirational juxtaposition of a spoiled past and its position as a new canvas for growth and rebirth. MEGGS’ use of deteriorating signage and locally sourced materials from the city’s abandoned and forgotten places emphasizes the revival of social pillars such as community and the idea that destruction and decay breed new beginnings.

The genesis of Spoiled Rotten lies in MEGGS’ painting entitled ‘Life’s Ups and Downs,’ which features a split image of the inflated iconic yellow happy face balloon juxtaposed with its discarded, decaying, and deflated other half.

“This concept started when I saw a deflated happy face balloon, which is an image I’ve been obsessed with lately. The ‘happy’ balloon is a classic icon that depicts playfulness, optimism, and the idea of, “Have a nice day!” Yet, the balloon is also a very disposable item and has a limited life span. It deflates. I think this is something that people can identify with and it ties into that idea of duality in Detroit,” Meggs said.

The exhibition also marks the debut of a new sculptural collaboration between MEGGS and artist Rafael Batista of Brooklyn, New York. Batista, who hand-sculpted each piece, gives new life to MEGGS’ happy face balloon images, taking them from canvas to 3D collectors’ items.

Originally from Melbourne, Australia, MEGGS has proven to be one of the most progressive street and fine artists with countless murals and gallery shows worldwide. MEGGS’ massive large scale murals throughout the globe have made him a must see artist at mural festivals like POW! WOW!, Forest For The Trees, and Sea Walls. Taking this same tireless work ethic to fine art gallery shows with creative and immersive installations at California’s White Walls and Thinkspace galleries, MEGGS’ Spoiled Rotten will be sure to impress.

Please join them from 6-10pm on September 19th for an artist welcoming reception and opening night celebration.

Cyrcle Totym Print Release Details

No comments:

CYRCLE the two-man collective born out of Los Angeles, California in 2010 have a new print they are releasing with 1xRUN on Thursday. Totym is a 5 color screen print that will have an edition of 75 signed and numbered.

"The piece was created during our recent travels to Europe, specifically in Vienna, Austria 2014. It is the last piece of the OVERTHRONE! theme. We are pleased with marriage of concept and composition as well as the color theory/balance. The piece was a digitally created design paying homage to pre-computer, traditional graphic design. The concept is rooted in breaking down mythologies, and overthrowing power.

We wanted to create the final piece of art for the OVERTHRONE! campaign, ending with this print. The design suggests the infinite nature of mythologies of the mind and the power they wield." - Cyrcle

Cult Classic Horror Blu-Ray/DVD Covers for MGM/Fox Halloween Series

No comments:

Earlier in 2014, Skuzzles partnered with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) Studios and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment in developing artwork for 13 cult classic horror films. The DVDs and Blu-rays feature illustrated limited edition artwork created by a collective of incredible artists from all over the globe (Dan Mumford, Ghoulish Gary Pulin, Jason Edmiston, Todd Slater, Randy Ortiz, Josh Budich, Justin Osborne, Paul Shipper, Gregorz Domaradzki "Gabz", Francesco Francavilla) .

At Skuzzles, they really want to offer artists the opportunity to work on titles they're passionate about. Skuzzles try to direct and pair artists where the it seems fit, but ultimately they want the artist to have equal say in how the art is executed. The goal is to keep the end result as close to the artists original vision as possible. Having said this, here' s a little bit of feedback from the artists regarding their concepts behind the artwork:

Todd Slater: Invasion of the Body Snatchers - "What if the pod with the flower was shaped similar to a sternum in a ribcage (it's really close now) and the white tendrils expand and extend from the pod to form more of the ribs and skeleton? The background could be deep dark outer space. My thought is that *the pods are building a new you*."

Randy Ortiz: Silence of the Lambs - "...I wanted to go a more symbolic route and have it be clean and classy."

Dan Mumford: Last house on the left - "... I found the scene where Mari walks into the water to be quite haunting and probably the most pivotal moment, so i worked from that and created quite a haunting still moment based around the lake she walks into. We also have two of the murderers standing there and her necklace dangling down with the smallest hint of blood red seeping through."

Jason Edmiston: Child's Play - "For my Child's Play art, I wanted to show Chucky's maniacal character, at the pinnacle of his power. I love the black magic quality of the movie, and tried to capture the killer doll in mid-chant, surrounded by crazy voodoo lightning, He scared me when I first saw this movie as a teen, and I wanted my cover art to evoke the same feeling. Most of the Child's play art is dark, with a black background. I thought my brightly lit piece would stand out from previous iterations."

All the films can be found at your favorite retailer with the new artwork.
