The Covert To Overt print series features three limited edition prints inspired by photographs by Jon Furlong. Jon Furlong’s latest show, COVERT TO OVERT: The Photography of Obey Giant closes this Saturday, Oct. 24, at Subliminal Projects. In addition, from 4pm – 5pm this Saturday, Oct. 24, Shepard will be signing copies of his new book COVERT TO OVERT: The Under/Overground Art of Shepard Fairey at the gallery. Many of the photographs in the show you’ll recognize from the pages of the book. Be sure to mark the date!!

Jon Furlong may seem low-key, but like a courageous war photographer, he is ferociously adept at capturing art action as well as the results of the action. Jon has been honing his skills on trips and missions with me and the OBEY crew for almost ten years, even picking up an X-acto knife or spray can when needed. There is no doubt that Jon has a naturally great eye for composition and light, but these OBEY photos are phenomenal because Jon’s complete immersion in the process makes him uniquely qualified to capture significant moments and angles. My new book achieves a new level of quality and intimacy in the documentation of my art process thanks to the photography of Jon Furlong. – Shepard Fairey, 2015
