Shepard Fairey has been making waves for over 20 years in the art scene, and as one of the first magazines to showcase his artwork way back when (Issue 0003 to be exact) Arktip is throwing down an amazing 20-year retrospective of the artist and his work. To help get the celebrations cracking, Arktip are hooking up with Alife LA to commemorate Fairey’s career with exclusive giveaways and limited edition pieces available on the night. If you happen to be in LA on June 19th, get down to this once in a lifetime shindig and crack open a cold one for us! More details below!
Longtime Arkitip and Shepard Fairey supporter ALIFE will host the release of the issue event (June 19th 7-10pm) at their onsite ALIFE Presents gallery space, footsteps from their Hollywood retail location. Arkitip first worked with the NYC brand way back in 2001 for a issue retrospective showcase and product release. ALIFE held Shepard Fairey’s 2000 New York solo exhibit ‘Repetition Works’ at its former Orchard Street location in New York City.
The new issue edition will be available along with special Obey x Arkitip x ALIFE commemorative t-shirts. Designed and produced specifically for the issue release. Shepard Fairey will create a new site specific installation at the onsite gallery location. In compliment to the installation, Shepard has designed a 14 x 48 ft. billboard directly above the gallery location that will be on view for one months time.
