Trailer for Hulu's 'Obey Giant: The Art & Dissent of Shepard Fairey' Doc
"The idea that someone didn't like it, didn't really phase me." Hulu has premiered the trailer for the new feature-length documentary titled Obey Giant: The Art & Dissent of Shepard Fairey, which will be available on Hulu starting this weekend. Made by Oscar-winning documentarian James Moll, the film profiles the life and work of artist Shepard Fairey, following his roots in punk rock and skateboarding to his creation of the iconic Obama HOPE poster and the controversy that surrounds it. We're big fans of street art and the artists behind controversial street art, including Banksy (including his two docs Exit Through the Gift Shop and Banksy Does New York) and many others. Fairey is also a prominent, well-respected artist and this seems like a fascinating, exciting look at his life and all of his work. I really want to watch this doc.
