Meeting with OBEY

Shepard Fairey aka OBEY

Mid-2012 we had the chance of meeting Shepard Fairey aka OBEY from Los Angeles in the US. I was so happy and so excited… even more when I sate just one meter from him!
It was during the launching of a new collaboration for Levi’s jeans, with his old mate André, the French graffiti artist living mostly in Paris.

They both imagined very cool stuff for the brand. I was very close to buy something but not my style.
