LOS ANGELES — Guerrilla street artist Shepard Fairey’s latest project could either be a brilliant business move or the ultimate act of subversiveness for the man behind those ubiquitous propaganda-style posters plastered from Los Angeles to New York to Tokyo and emblazoned with the single command: “Obey.”
Fairey, who continues feeding the Warhol-meets-Big Brother-cult phenomenon he began in 1989 based on a crudely rendered image of pro wrestler Andre the Giant, recently introduced a contemporary women’s line with partner One3Two, the Costa Mesa, Calif.-based maker of his two-year-old men’s wear line, also called Obey.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
