    Obey Clothing has released ‘The Rise’ short film, featuring an interview with founder, artist Shepard Fairey. Shepard talks about the influence graffiti, skateboarding and punk rock had on his life and the ways it shaped his art career. Key moments such as a school trip to NY and the melding of styles by brands such as Shut Skateboards allowed him to develop his techniques. Look out for some classic 90’s skate footage as well.
