OBEY THE ARTIST travels deep inside Shepard Fairey’s creative process, exploring how politics and music inform his iconographic work. Tracing his punk rock roots from his early days of rigging copy machines and tagging to helming a thriving, independent business by harnessing the power of technology, the film follows Fairey as he transforms a photograph by National Geographic’s Aaron Huey from a digital print to the streets of L.A. in the form of a remarkable 12-foot mural in order to give voice to the forgotten history of Native Americans. The latest in a series from A TOTAL DISRUPTION, “OBEY THE ARTIST” looks at this groundbreaking artist who is innovating his independence.
