Andre The Giant Has A Posse (OBEY)

Recommended Posts

Guest SaddamInsane

i like his art, his posters are dope and his efforts are sick, but it is a little odd because your never sure whos actually putting em up, but whatever you have to respect the way he spread his shit around like propaganda and have kids putting his name up for him. and it still is his art even if soemone else is puttign it up.

He even has a smooth explaination of it all with the term coined as "phenomenology". It's funny how far it has gone and what it inspired. Love it or hate it, Obey the Giant insane amounts of coverage and it is mostly illegal.

Obey is such big trend. its sad to see someone's art that you like become such a commodity, but at the same time i'm glad that one more artist is able to avoid the 9-5 routine and make his living off of what he does. he gets all of my best wishes. i only wish that all the kids buying the clothing line could understand the passion and effort that goes into street art.

the man is fucking briliant....tons of kids put up his stuff now. and maybe not everyone agrees with that or thinks that that is "keeping it real" or what ever. but he started out just like all of us.doing it all by himself right here in providence. <<side note>> i believe he started it all with a 10 foot whole body poster of andre the giant going over a picture of mayer cianci on a bilboard when he was first running for office... i think thats fukking hot. and hes done good for himself since then... whats wrong with that? dont you wish you could sit back make your art all day and get paid for it.... i know i do. i say he got out...good for him.
