Two of the greats come together for one of the coolest collabs you will see this year. If you don't know Shepard Fairey or the Obey story, hes the man behind the infamous Obama "Hope" campaign poster. Shepard has been pasting up his Andre Obey image for over 20 years and has surely gotten up in more places than any other artist in the world.
In recent years his Obey art project has expanded to include a clothing line bearing the same Andre image as features on many of his paste ups but always open to collaborations has decided to pay tribute to one of his biggest influences, Keith Haring. Haring may have died shortly after the first Obey paste up began appearing on the streets but his artistic legacy lives on more so today than ever before. There's a massive retrospective of Haring's work currently on display at the Brooklyn Museum, combined with the amazing Obey t shirts, sweats and jackets, it really is a Summer of Love! Well it will be when you buy some of these amazing goods, available soon from Boarderline!
