Obey Print Release part duex –

I’m overwhelmed with the amount of incredible artwork coming out of the Obey camp in the past two weeks.  For the third week in a row pop-artist Shepard Fairey is releaseing a killer series of music inspired prints that are a much larger format that his usual style. 

Over the past week he has released 6 massive images that have sold out in “record” time (no pun intended, really), getting one has been strictly luck I’m sure.  This weeks release of three images is no less impressive and in my opinion probably the best thus far.   I would be bummed personally if I bought any of the prints within the last two weeks since these trump those in style and impact.

These prints are expensive, around $500 per print and come in a limited edition of 50 (signed and hand numbered).  I wish I had the scratch to keep up and grab some each week, but looks like the wife has kyboshed any such impulsive urges until I get the remainder of my prints framed.  A bedroom of print tubes I’m sure is the reasoning, and I can’t argue my way out of that.

If you like this print check out the others at www.obeygiant.com the release times of his prints are always random (I’ve found anywhere between  2:00 and 5:00 EST to be the most common), remember, Obey is on the West Coast time.  The release date for these prints is todayMay 5th, good luck!

Obey Records Print Release today 4/28

As you know we here at Hi Fi Central are avid art collectors, specifically in music related prints.  Pop propaganda artist Shepard Fairey is realeasing a very cool series of prints today at a random time.  The prints are larger than his usual weekly releases and the price tag as well, $500 per print, yikes!  Granted, these prints are limited to only an edition size of 40 and are very striking.  There are three different prints being offered, but the one featured is my favorite.

Obey Giant is located on the West Coast so if you live on the East Coast release times usually happen any where from 2:00 to 5:00 EST, but again, it’s always random so you never know when they will be available for sale. 

Fairey’s prints often sell out in minutes, even the $500 ones, so if you want them you got to be pro-active and keep hitting that refresh button and then strike!  Good luck and let us know if you get one.

UPDATE: ALL THREE IMAGES ARE SOLD OUT!!

Joe Strummer Print Release today!

If you read my  April 2010 post  entitled “The Art of The Music Business” you will appreciate today’s release of a print by artist Shepard Fairey (of Obey fame).  The print will be released at a random time (my experience has been between exactly 2:00 and 4:00 EST), so get on early and keep hitting the refresh button on your browser.

UPDATE!!!  It went up for sale at 1:00 EST so get it if you can!

Often his prints sell out in minutes so you have a good chance of NOT getting one, it is a very frustrating process, however to Fairey’s credit he does make his prints available at very cheap prices, the Strummer print is $70 and is in an edition size of 450 (signed and numbered by Fairey).

As with most of Shepard Fairey’s prints they skyrocket in value nearly the next day so they are a worthwhile investment and if you really appreciate art, not bad to hang on your walls if you get them professionally framed.  Joe Strummer was the cornerstone the British band The  Clash and this print does a nice job of paying homage to the rock icon.  Hat’s off to you Shepard, nice one!
