______________Obey + Dface

Apotres de la desobeissance visuelle, Shepard Fairey (dit Obey) et D-face, sont aujourd hui parmi les artistes les plus talentueux et consideres du street-art. Comme l affirme D-face il s agit "d encourager les gens a ne pas seulement voir , mais aussi a regarder ce qui les entoure, repenser les stereotypes de notre culture, ne pas rester passif devant le regne de la consommation ostentatoire". A Shepard Fairey d ajouter qu il est temps de "stimuler les gens a etre plus curieux et a s interroger sur leur environnement". Une sorte de revolution par le visuel, qui detourne les langages propres a la propagande qu elle soit politique ou publicitaire, est ainsi en marche.

Obey, de son veritable nom Shepard Fairey, est un artiste activiste connu desormais dans le monde entier. L Institute of Contemporary Art de Boston affirme que c est l artiste urbain le plus influent a l heure actuelle. D-Face est devenu quant a lui l un des street artistes des plus connus au Royaume-Uni.

Obey + Dface

Apostles of the visual disobedience, Shepard Fairey (aka. Obey) and D-face, are now amongst the most talented and famous artists in street art. As D-face claims "I want to encourage people to not just see , but to look at what surrounds them and their lives, re-thinking and reworking cultural figures and genres to comment on our ethos of conspicuous consumption". Shepard Fairey adds that in his art, his aim "is to reawaken a sense of wonder about one s environment, to stimulate curiosity and bring people to their relationship with their surroundings". Using the political and advertisement propaganda codes, they are leaders of a visual revolution of their own.

Obey, aka. Shepard Fairey, is a world famous artistic activist. The Boston Institute of Contemporary Art calls him one of today s best known and most influential street artists. D-Face is on his hand one of the most prolific and famous street artist in the UK, always destroying icons to give them a better second street life.
