From Obey Giant:
The Obey Salad Days print was created to accompany the “Salad Days” exhibition, a selection of my art from 1989-1999 at the Cranbrook Museum. My show is a companion show to Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die: Punk Graphics, 1976-1986 and Salad Days is meant to show the influence of punk on my early work’s aesthetics, concepts, and methods. The Salad Days print features a recreation of the paste-up I made in the process of refining the Obey Star Icon in January 1996. I did not learn how to use a Mac until late 1997, so the star image was created by hand using a star window cut out of paper to choose the right cropping for the Icon Face I had just illustrated. I like the idea of revealing the low-fi techniques that drove punk and my early career (and still do!). A limited number of Salad Days posters will be for sale at the show opening Cranbrook Art Museum. If you are in Michigan, check it out! If you can’t swing it, get one on Tuesday on Details below. Thanks for caring! -Shepard
