About Obey Giant
|Obey Giant is a street art campaign and an experiment in phenomenology by artist Shepard Fairey. Its sole purpose is to make people question their surroundings. Shepard started the campaign in 1989 while attending RISD (Rhode Island School of Design). Though his "experiment in phenomenology" is pushed through stickers and prints alone, Shepard's other artistic works often include fine art, screen prints (including Band Prints), skateboards, clothing, and toys. Although many of these works include imagery from the Obey Giant campaign, they are not regularly considered part of it.
