2nd Edition Special Anniversary Black & White Edition

THE PHILOSOPHY OF OBEY (i.e. Obey Giant / Shepard Fairey) is one of the fundamental texts of 21st Century aesthetics - short, bold, candid, puzzling and remarkable in its power to stir the imagination of philosophers and artists alike. Arguably one of the most compelling works of philosophy and art written in the twentieth-first century, Philosophy of Obey is the only artistic - philosophical work that Obey has published during its campaign. Written in short, carefully crafted sentences of extremely revealing candor, it will capture the imagination of a generation of Street Artists and philosophers.

For Obey, discourse is something we use to examine reality which is in itself both elusive and unobtainable. Obey famously summarized this book in the following words: I aim to bring something new to every artwork. The work is prefaced by Sarah Jaye Williams introduction to the first edition. Obey Giant (1989 2008) is regarded by many as one of the most significant street art campaigns.

This book is a work of theoretical philosophy, contemporary art, and contemporary art history. Any illegal activity or actions deduced or derived from this work is entirely inappropriate and beyond the scope and intent of either the author or publisher.
