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.
OBEY’s description on Vimeo describes the video quite well. I just love hearing artists talk about their lives and their past. What makes them tick, where in life they made decisions, changes, their logical and artistic progression.
