Obey The Giant – The Story of Shepard Fairey

The story of Street Art royalty Shepard Fairey gets the cinematic treatment thanks to Rhode Island School of Design film student, Julian Marshall. The ambitious filmmaker’s thesis Obey The Giant synthesizes the years that Fairey himself spent at the school (1989-1992) including his first infamous run-in with the law when he pasted an “Andre The Giant” poster over then-mayoral candidate Buddy Cianci’s campaign billboard. The rest is history.
