Shepard Fairey

Obey to the better
Posted by Ole Wagner—01/2011

Introducing the American artist Shepard Fairey is a bit like explaining whose portrait he famously altered for the "Hope" campaign that was widely used by Barack Obama's supporters in 2008. Since the mid 1980s he has created outstanding (then: street) art that is strong, iconic and expressive. Shepard Fairey is also a thoughtful, committed, and outspoken activist who revives the artistic virtues of standing up for the freedom of speech and fighting for rational and non-corporate ways of dealing with the issue of copyright. Obey the interview we did with him in Los Angeles in late 2010!

Trachten featured in the May issue of Harper's Bazaar.

Trachten on DB mobil. “Das Buch ist eine Hommage an fast vergessene Traditionen vieler deutscher Regionen. Wie ein Farbrausch, prunkvoll und überwältigend, ziehen die Bilder den Betrachter in den Bann.”

Trachten featured in the April 17 edition of Süddeutsche Zeitung. “Trachten spielen wieder eine Rolle in der Mode: weil sie für Ursprünglichkeit stehen und ein wenig Weltflucht. (Dieser) Bildband feiert die Kleider-Kunstwerke…Eine Augenweide.”

Trachten in the April 19 edition of Welt am Sonntag. “Der Modefotograf Gregor Hohenberg reiste fünf Jahre lang durch Deutschland, um Menschen in Trachten zu porträtieren. Seine Bilder zeigen eine erstaunliche Vielfalt der Formen, Schnitte und Verzierungen – und sie erzählen von hoher Handwerkskunst.”

Imagine Architecture reviewed in the April/May issue of Cubes. "An interdisciplinary bridge for those who wish to seek inspiration beyond their field of architecture, photography or modern art."

The New Nomads featured on Milk Decoration.

Corso interviewed Sven Ehmann about The New Nomads.
