In Obey the Giant, design writer Rick Poynor exposes the ambivalent reality beneath the seductive surface of contemporary visual culture. Ranging across design, advertising, photography, publishing and art, these essays challenge received wisdom, dismiss sacred cows and pose challenging questions about key issues and trends - from graphic memes and the poverty of 'cool' to culture jamming, designer sex and death, and the pleasure of imperfection. An inspiring call to action, Obey the Giant shows how designers and image-makers both collude with, and resist, corporate control of the image world.

Obey Giant

This book displays 10 years of graphic evolution - from the first photocopied "Andre the Giant" sticker that Shepard Fairey made at RISD to the giant billboard posters you see all around the world.

Andre the Giant Has a Posse is a street art campaign based on an original design by Frank Shepard Fairey created in 1989 while Fairey was a student at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). At the time Fairey declared the campaign to be "an experiment in phenomenology." Over time the artwork has been reused in a number of ways and has become a world-wide pataphysical movement, following in the footsteps of Ivan Stang's Church of the SubGenius and populist WWII icon Kilroy Was Here. At the same time, Fairey's work has evolved stylistically and semantically into the OBEY Giant campaign. This book displays 10 years of graphic evolution - from the first photocopied "Andre the Giant" sticker that Shepard Fairey made at RISD to the giant billboard posters you see all around the world. A stunning full-colour documentation of Fairey's T `campaign' of postering and stencils It attempts to simultaneously bring the viewer to question propaganda absorption and to encourage a better use of public space.

"Sarah Jaye Williams knows art history, art theory, and has followed my Obey art and ideas throughout my career. She has compiled quotes for the Philosophy of Obey book by meticulously reading hundreds of my articles and interviews. These quotes touch on a broad range of topics and show the evolution of my positions over the years. There is humor, irreverence, hope, pessimism, anger, jubilation, and even maybe some wisdom mixed in with all the potentially contradictory thoughts and emotions. I think there is substantial food for thought in this spectrum statements." --Artist's website.

Most people know Shepard Fairey from his "OBEY GIANT" Campaign. Beginning in 1989, he put up stickers and posters of the face of the wrestler "Andre the Giant." What looks like an advertising campaign with no product is in reality the biggest Street Art project that this world has seen. Supply and Demand is the book that finally does justice to Shepard Fairey's entire body of work, a massive retrospective covering 17 Years of this groundbreaking artist's prodigious output. Through the lens of esteemed writers and critics such as Carlo McCormick, Steven Heller and Roger Gastman, Fairey's work is seen for all its depth and placed in context as art, design, social experiment and Graffiti. This massive book doesn't fail to impress. All areas of the enigmatic artist's work, travels and travails are illuminated; from exhibitions, posters, flyers, silkscreens and stickers to high altitude pursuits, citations and police beatings, its all documented in a museum quality layout and binding.

It was 1989 when Shepard Fairey, a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, first created the now-infamous The Giant has a Posse sticker. The black and white image of the huge wrestler's subdued and vacant stare became an underground icon and by the mid-90's about a half-million had been posted around the world. This monograph is a reprint of a limited edition paperback published in Japan. It documents Shepard Fairey's career from his creation of the Giant phenomenon up to and including the advent of Black Market, a San Diego design agency Fairey formed with Dave Kinsey and Philip Dewolff and which focuses on the action sport and music industries. Today Shepard Fairey creates designs for high profile clients such as Pepsi and Universal Pictures, produces Giant art, exhibits worldwide in galleries, and still keeps his Giant images on the streets.
