No need to introduce Shepard Fairey anymore, the American street artist that brought to the world the famous André the Giant “Obey” mural and the iconic Barack Obama “Hope“. Fairey merged trendy clothes and socially provocative propaganda to create a form of “manufacturing dissent” (in his own words). And what's best to share a message to the world than to put it on your clothes? Fairey also cooperates with other artists to design more casual, street style clothes that are equally trendy to the most committed ones.
Apart from activist streetwear, Obey also creates alternative products with other artists, like this Dark Orchid backpack.
