Shepard Fairey is the man behind OBEY GIANT, the 1989 art and graphics campaign that changed the way people see art and the urban landscape. Fairey steeps his ideology and iconography in the self-empowerment of those who refuse to be manipulated by the machine of manufactured consent.
Incase for Shepard Fairey is a capsule collection of accessories for Apple device users featuring one of the world’s most preeminent street artists. As a cultural provocateur, social critic and artist, Fairey’s bold illustrations have created some of the most enduring cultural memes in modern times.
“The artworks that comprise my series for Incase all overtly or sublimely reflect the concept of Peace. Peace seems like a simple idea, but evidence of its fragility is far too visible. I believe peace, beauty, and harmony are not only related, but intertwined. Visual symbols of peace manifest similarly in many different cultures, transcending language and reminding us of the basic loves and needs we all have in common. Peace is a struggle, but whether the images are ornamental, hopeful, or cautionary, this series promotes harmony.”
