Shepard Fairey : They Live Poster
Shepard Fairey is the name behind Obey, and its famous Andre the Giant logo. But He picked up the Obey name in John Carpenter’s They Live, a cult movie where the hero can see the real faces of aliens amongst the human race, thanks to special goggles… And sometimes, behind the advertising billboards, he can also see the hidden messages those space scums brainwash us with. Commands such as… OBEY ! The famous graphic designer, responsible for the Obama campaign poster, offers us his own version of the movie poster. If you didn’t see that movie, I can only advise you to watch it. NOW. OBEY.
