ABOUT THE ART

"Happy Earth Day everyone! But then again, every day should be Earth Day since we live here every day! This “Bliss at the Cliff’s Edge” image is my modern take on the 19th-century romantic landscape featuring sunbathers enjoying the dramatic oceanside setting. The Industrial Revolution and the discovery of oil as a fuel source created convenient advances that left more leisure time for the public to enjoy. At the time, these advances seemed to have no downside but we now have an overwhelming scientific consensus that the pollution and carbon emissions from oil and gas are dramatically harming and heating the planet and contributing to more extreme weather. We are at the cliff’s edge when it comes to preventing the most catastrophic damage to the planet. The technology exists, the only thing missing is the will of the people to put the future of the planet and the lives of our kids before convenience and profit. A portion of proceeds from this print go to Greenpeace USA‘s efforts to fight for responsible environmental policies. Please support them if you can! Thanks for caring!"

-Shepard Fairey

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Frank Shepard Fairey (born February 15, 1970) is an American contemporary graphic designer, and illustrator who emerged from the skateboarding scene. He first became known for his "Andre the Giant Has a Posse" (…OBEY…) sticker campaign, in which he appropriated images from the comedic supermarket tabloid Weekly World News. His work became more widely known in the 2008 U.S. presidential election, specifically his Barack Obama "Hope" poster.

The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston calls him one of today's best known and most influential street artists. His work is included in the collections at The Smithsonian, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
