The Ideal Power print was inspired by the need to address gender inequality regarding both wages and basic respect. I believe power should come from the quality and merit of one’s work only rather than being influenced by any other variable including gender. Equality is important on every front, but I chose to focus on discrimination and double-standards toward women because I think the prejudice is so insidious and pervasive that most people only recognize the most inflammatory instances of sexism if they recognize it at all. As a husband and father of two girls, I want to see women treated with equal dignity and respect, with access to the same opportunities and wages as men. Though gender inequality is a global problem, studies show that in the U.S. women make about 80 cents to the man's dollar for the same jobs according to the latest report by Pew Research Center (link in bio). I’m ashamed when I read a statistic that illuminates how far we have to go as a nation to achieve the standards of morality, fairness, and equality that we claim to aspire to. I’d like to see legislation that fines and penalizes companies that consistently and measurably pay women less related to men. Let’s face it, capitalism and corporations get away with whatever they are allowed to get away with. We can punish the most egregious corporate offenders with our spending choices only if we fully understand the scale of their gender bias. In that regard, I’d like to see both government investigation and regulation as well as consumer awareness groups that alert the public to the companies who disrespect women’s rights to equal pay. A portion of proceeds from this print will benefit the United Nations Population Fund (@unfpa), who advocates for women and girls, promoting legal and policy reforms and gender-sensitive data collection, and supporting initiatives that improve women's health and expand their choices in life. - Shepard Ideal Power. 18 x 24 inches. Screenprint on cream Speckle Tone paper. Signed by Shepard Fairey. Numbered edition of 450. $55. Available Tuesday, May 2 at 10AM (PST) on ObeyGiant.com in Store under Prints. Limit 1 per person/household.

Launching today at Art Market San Francisco (@artmarketproductions), @theskateroom collaboration is an evolution of the DIY silk screened skateboard I began making in the 90’s as an art canvas that could go on four wheels or a wall. These new boards are more refined art pieces, but the spirit of skateboard culture is what drives this new collaboration. ‘No Future’ is a response to the election of #Trump. My art is usually social and political regardless of who is in the White House, but my concerns and frustrations are amplified by the election of #DonaldTrump. I joked while Trump was campaigning that his slogan should be ‘Manifest Density,' a parody of ‘Manifest Destiny,' which was an embarrassingly egotistical pronouncement by rich white men that it was God’s desire for them to conquer ocean to ocean in the territory that would become the United States. Trump appealed to an uninformed electorate who looked for scapegoats and were driven by most likely one or more of the dark impulses listed in the image. I’m pushing for a future where those impulses have no place and definitely no traction. Let’s move forward, not backward! You can purchase my series exclusively on theskateroom.com or during Art Market San Francisco. Set of 3 hand screen printed 7-ply Canadian maple skateboards. 31 inches x 8 inches. Limited edition of 450. Following The Skateroom business model, 20% of profits from this edition will be donated to a cause having an impact on society. For this collaboration, I’ve decided to support The Amplifier Foundation (@amplifierfoundation), an art machine for social change. For further info, visit theskateroom.com.

Today marks the 4th anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, a tragedy that took the lives of 1,100 garment workers in Bangladesh in 2013. We now refer to this day as #FashionRevolutionDay, and use it as a time to reflect on how we can respect the process of how the clothes we wear are made. I’m proud to join @obeyclothing and the fellow @fairtradeusa activists including Rose Marcario (CEO of @patagonia), @kellyslater (Pro Surfer), and Nancy Green (CEO of @athleta) to kick off #FashionRevolutionWeek. Social responsibility and justice have always been very important to Obey in both message and practice. A longstanding challenge for Obey Clothing has been how to bring high quality clothing to our customers at an affordable price while adhering to our moral code from a human labor standpoint. In other words, how do we reconcile our value system with the pressures of the economic system? We have always researched diligently and chosen to work with manufacturers who provide a fair wage and ethical working conditions. We made the further step to become an official FAIR TRADE USA partner. Fair Trade is a program in apparel and we hope to grow with it as more Fair Trade Approved factories become available. Our hope is not only to benefit the workers of the Fair Trade factories, but to lead by example and promote the expansion of the Fair Trade program. - Shepard You can shop the Fair Trade Collection now on ObeyClothing.com! #WeWearFairTrade #WhoMadeMyClothes

I’m incredibly proud of this new billboard now up at @highlinenyc in New York at 17th Street and 10th Avenue. If you’re familiar with my work, you can see this is a mash up of my “Demagogue" collab with #franzferdinand and "No Future” art, both inspired by a certain demagogue’s arrival to the White House. I am glad that people are taking a stand against the destructive politics of fear and division that continue to be the calling card for the Trump Administration. These first 100 days have been brutal, but we have to continue to push forward for a future with no ignorance, no sexism, no racism, no xenophobia; a future where apathy is the exception NOT the norm. Every act of moral courage makes a difference. Thanks for caring! - Shepard Thank you @turtleconservancy for the billboard space! Check out #highlinenyc for their opening day of the summer season tomorrow from 1-6pm! by @turtlesarentslow #resist #westandunited #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #resist #westandunited #nyc #newyork #demagogue

Corporate donations create a distorted influence in politics and corrupt our democracy. This is an issue that effects all Americans by insuring that corporate interests are put before the interests of the average person. Californians, please sign this petition for AB 14, a crucial bill to get Big Money out of our state politics! I’m proud to live in California because our state leads on so many of the issues I care about. We MUST pass this petition to continue to support genuine democracy!

I first illustrated the Dark Wave piece in 2010 as a response to the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico. I made some fine art pieces of the image that I liked even more than the screen prints and decided I’d like to release an offset of the fine art version. I am releasing this both because I like the image, and because unfortunately, the environmental hazards of off-shore drilling are just as relevant today as they were in 2010…especially with the relaxed regulations under the new administration. I enjoy doing illustrations of water with its hypnotic ripples and reflections. There’s oil in this water, which mixes ok in an illustration, but not so well in real life. I want future generations to inhabit a livable planet. - Shepard Dark Wave. 24 x 36 inches. Offset poster on thick cream Speckle Tone paper. Signed by Shepard Fairey. Open edition. $35. Available Thursday, April 20 at 10AM (PDT) on ObeyGiant.com in Store under Prints.

I couldn't be more proud to share the logo I designed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of my favorite bands - Misfits! As a teenager growing up in South Carolina, the #Misfits were a revelation for me. Aggression, style, irreverence, AND parent-baiting lyrics... the Misfits served up the incendiary cocktail I had been searching for. The Misfits art is pure alchemy genius and the best example of remixing marginal subculture imagery into a cohesive cult brand in history. The thing I love about the classic Misfits imagery is that it is well designed, but has a do-it-yourself charm that is organic and unfussy. With the classic Misfits iconography so well-known and revered, I decided to put my ego as an artist and designer aside and focus on an approach for the band's 40th anniversary logo that builds upon and remixes some classic Misfits images while creating some new elements. In my tribute, I wanted to channel the attitude and be true to the Misfits irreverent four decades in horror business. Like it or not.. you think they really care? Visit ObeyGiant.com to learn more about what this project meant to me both as a fan and as an artist/designer! You can get the all-new Misfits 40th Anniversary Tee before its available in any store (link in bio). Please note, all orders will be shipped the week of May 1st. I'll also be doing a poster variation of the Misfits 40th art and there's talk of a Misfits x OBEY Clothing collection in the works. Stay tuned for more! - Shepard #Obey #ObeyGiant #ShepardFairey #MisfitsxObey

The “Spirit of Independence” print is being released to celebrate and support Providence's @niceslice_pizzeria, owned by my long time friend and supporter Al Read. With corporate developers putting the squeeze on the neighborhood, Nice Slice was evicted and forced to leave their current location. Al and his partner Rob are working to open a new Nice Slice in a more “up-and-coming” area further west, not far from my old studio. 100% of profits will go to moving and transition expenses for Nice Slice. Thanks for supporting independent businesses and for helping me help my friend! - Shepard Spirit of Independence. 18 x 24 inches. Screen print on cream Speckle Tone paper. Signed by Shepard Fairey. Numbered edition of 400. $45. 300 available Thursday, April 13 at 10AM (PDT) on ObeyGiant.com in Store under Prints and 100 available at Nice Slice in Providence this Saturday, April 15.

I was saddened to find out that downtown New York culture legend #GlennOBrien just passed away. I got to know Glenn a little bit in recent years because he interviewed me a few times, but I was aware of his contribution to many of the coolest scenes in #NewYork, all the way back to his involvement in #AndyWarhol’s studio and @interviewmag. He later did a cable access show called "TV Party" which featured people like #Basquiat and #Blondie. One of my all time favorite interviews was with Glenn; I sat with him in New York for a brilliant conversation for the recent show he created with @m2m called "Tea At The Beatrice With Glenn O’Brien" (link in bio). I was amazed by how intelligent, insightful, and knowledgeable Glenn was about everything. It was very meaningful validation for him to consider me worthy of being on his show, and his presence will be missed in the New York world. - Shepard

Watching #AlGore's documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" was a turning point for me. Even though I had created some images about protecting the environment before that, the film woke me up to the urgency of addressing climate change. The upcoming "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power" is a similar call to action. We must come together globally and combat climate change. The threats to the environment are even more grave in our current political state, so I'm glad this documentary is releasing this summer. Take a look at the trailer (link in bio) and remember that we have to keep fighting. Thanks for caring! - Shepard @aninconvenienttruth

If you’re a podcast fan and you haven’t listened to @crimetownshow yet, do yourself a favor and start listening. The show is excellently produced by Zac Stuart-Pontier and Marc Smerling, who also did the phenomenal @hbo series The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst. The podcast investigates the culture of crime in different cities starting with Providence, Rhode Island and the organized crime and government corruption that has run rampant in that city. Our paths converged when they came across the 1990 Buddy Cianci mayoral campaign billboard that I liberated for my own art agenda. The show is great, I suggest starting from the beginning but if you’re eager to hear about the billboard bombing, check out Chapter 14 - the Renaissance Man which I’m a part of. The website CrimtownShow.com has some great archives from this motley cast of Providence characters.

My daughter Vivienne and her partner-in-crime Lola Roberts recently launched their own brand called @tigerlightscreative to empower young girls to believe in themselves, promote female positivity, and tap into their inner tiger. They’ve used their platform to release a collection of t-shirts, stickers, and pins that remind young girls to believe in the power of the feminine. A portion of the proceeds generated from sales go to select charities that they believe are making a difference for women everywhere! Today marks the last day of #WomensHistoryMonth so I’d like to dedicate today to my daughters Vivienne and Madeline, and my wife Amanda for inspiring me and women everywhere to empower themselves and never take no for an answer! To learn more about Tiger Lights, visit www.tigerlightscreative.com and follow them on Instagram! - Shepard
