Printed Matters Sydney – Shepard Fairey

19197620_10155511986911318_1336756774_o

Printed Matters is an ongoing series of exhibitions, focusing on the importance of printed material in Shepard Fairey’s art. Each exhibition highlights the significance by incorporating a variety of Fairey’s printed material, including serigraphs on paper, editions on wood, editions on metal, and fine art collage. New works are added for each venue, making each Printed Matters exhibition a unique experience. Beginning in 2010, the Printed Matters platform was first presented in Los Angeles, and for its next instalment will exhibit in Sydney at The Old Rum Store in the Kensington Street Precinct in Chippendale (Sydney), on view from Saturday, 17 June – Sunday, 9 July 2017.

Fairey is known around the world for his iconic imagery; whether it’s the Barack Obama HOPE poster, his evolving sticker campaign, or his brand OBEY. He will be appearing as a keynote Game-Changer speaker for Vivid Ideas, as well as painting his largest mural ever, located at 309 George Street. In addition, he currently has a free public exhibition at the Darling Quarter precinct entitled ‘Revolutions’.

“I can’t imagine my art practice without the influence of, and the use of, printing. Some of my biggest art influences were not paintings, but printed things like album covers, skateboard graphics, punk flyers, and T-shirt designs … Some people say print is on its way out, that it will be wiped out by digital media, but I say you can never replace the provocative, tactile experience of an art print on the street or in a gallery. Printing still matters.” Shepard Fairey

In addition to the exhibition, T-world is releasing two exclusive T-shirts to commemorate the show and Fairey’s tour as an official OBEY x T-world collaboration. The limited- edition T-shirts are exclusive to the event and only available at the pop-up gallery, reflecting the ethos of T-world’s “Print is Premium” stance.

Adnate – ‘Always Been Here’

Melbourne based artist, Adnate, is considered one of the most influential street artists in Australia and has used his artistic practice to draw focus to the Indigenous peoples of the country. ‘Always Been Here’ is a powerfully emotive display of the faces he has encountered across Australia. The show poignantly represents the spiritual beauty of Indigenous culture and champions a deep respect for tradition.

Boywolf x T-world – ‘Film the Police’

In 1991, Rodney King became victim to police brutality. Wrong place, wrong time. NWA’s “F#ck the Police” became the anthem to bring attention to such outrage. In 2016 – not a lot has changed except to catch the guilty now you need to “Film the Police”. This tee produced by Boywold and T-world, with type styles by the talented Ohnoes, is dedicated to keeping the law accountable, 25 years later.

The minds behind the tee have a word of warning though: ‘We advise that you don’t go getting arrested at night wearing this tee. As night prevails, the key message pays homage to a song lyric by NWA that changed a generation.’

Available in 3 colours. Hit up www.boywolf.com for pre-sales, the tee is only available in limited numbers so best not sleep on this one.
