  • ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: SHEPARD FAIREY

    If you couldn’t tell, we here at P.O.W. liked to nerd out when it comes to street art. We have the pleasure of working with some of the coolest, most talented artists in the world, like our good pal Shepard Fairey!

    Shepard has a talent for stripping down the detail of pop culture imagery, leaving only the most recognizable traits in a minimal 4 color composition. Take his recent wood print Flavor Flav for example, iconic yet simple.

    FLAVOR FLAV by SHEPARD FAIREY

    But that’s not to say Shep’s work lacks detail. His work is unique in the sense that when you recognize his flourishing compositions, you slowly notice all the bits and pieces of underground culture tossed in. It’s in these little details where his talent truly shines.

    HI-FIDELITY by SHEPARD FAIREY

    Our collaborations with Shepard aren’t fixed solely on limited edition wood prints, sometimes we help him take it to the streets (legally :P) with our rockin’ banner printing skills. Check out this huge large format installation we produced currently hanging in beautiful Downtown Riverside across the street from the Mission Inn.

  • WE THE PEOPLE

    Describing itself at an "Art Machine For Social Change", The Amplifier Foundation  has commissioned our good friend, Shepard Fairey to design some posters for their upcoming "We The People" campaign.

    Serving as an art based protest of America's 45th Presidential Inauguration for President-Elect Donald J. Trump, The "We The People" project is focused on distributing posters featuring the art of Shepard Fairey as well as Ernesto Yerena, and Jessica Sabogal, at this event.

    As as some areas of Washington DC will have restrictions on the carrying of signs and posters, The Amplifier Foundation intends to get around these restrictions with their kickstarter campaign. where they have taken out full page ads in the Washington Post of these images, allowing people to carry them into these areas discreetly, paste them on walls, or hang them from the windows of their home.

    For those planning to attend the Inauguration in person, or who are local to the area, keep an eye on the social media accounts of Obey Giant and The Amplifier Foundation to discover how to get some of these signs that Prints On Wood was able to produce for this event, as they will be distributed in DC at Metro stops, out the back of moving vans, and drop locations to be announced as the 45th Inauguration approaches. The artwork of these files will also be available on The Amplifier Foundation's site for download should you want to print these images yourself.

  • 3 Notable Artist Releases of 2016

    If you ask all of us here what we love the most about Prints On Wood, we'd say it would be working here! But if you asked us what our favorite releases of the past year were, then our collective opinion starts to fluctuate. While we couldn't completely agree 100% on which print we liked the best, there were definitely 3 we all seemed to think were pretty cool...

    SHEPARD FAIREY - HI FIDELITY COFFEE TABLE

    What can we say about Shepard's talent that hasn't been said already? We don't care, because his work always deserving for it to be said again! Shepard's work always looks great... whether it's slapped on the back of the a street sign, wheatpasted on the side of an electrical box, or spray painted on the entire side of a building. Being our second collaboration with OBEY, we decided to include some of their iconic street style with each of these prints being spray painted by hand with gold paint. Hang it on your wall or rest your coffee and a couple of books on it... there's no wrong way to rock this bad boy.

    VIGO EN MORTIS - HANDIEDAN

    Limited only to a signed and numbered edition of 100, Dutch artist Handiedan came out with guns blazing on Vigo En Mortis. Her work is truly mixed media, combining intricate digital art elements with three dimensional hand cut layers that require painstaking detail. Her work is almost like a WHERE'S WALDO for designers and artists alike, containing flourishes, currency notes, Pin Up Art, sheet music, skulls, and a myriad of other graphic art staples. What impressed us the most about Handiedan's art was how beautiful is translated as a wood print.

    STU - RENEE FRENCH

    I think we all liked this piece by Renee French becuase STU is a lot like all of us... cute and weird! I mean c'mon... just look at him! Those bulgey eyes, those little arms, that fluffy white fur! I just want to take him to work every day in my pocket and feed him skittles! What is STU? Is he a rat? A squirrel? A gopher? We don't care, he's STU... and that's good enough for us!
