History of Obey
OBEY was founded in 2001 by none other than Shepard Fairey, the world-renowned artist who seeks to improve the world through his art. What began for Fairey with an absurd sticker he made in 1989 while studying at the Rhode Island School of Design, has since grown into a global street art campaign and an acclaimed collection of fine art. OBEY Clothing was founded in 2001 as an extension of Shepard's work. In line with his populist views, clothing became another way of spreading his art and message to the people. The clothing is heavily inspired by classic military design, workwear basics, as well as the elements and cultural movements that Shepard based his art career on. Through designers Mike Ternosky and Erin Wignall, Shepard works to create designs that represent his influences, ideals and philosophy. OBEY Clothing is also known for raising political and corporate issues through its clothing. OBEY is about diversity and gaining experience, thinking about your surroundings and the purpose of asking questions.
