OBEY IN NYC / JERSEY
Last Friday, I joined Shepard and the OBEY Giant crew as we flew out to NYC for a week long of murals, good times and the opening of Shepard’s first solo exhibition since 2010 – ON OUR HANDS – Sept 17th at Jacob Lewis Gallery.
After touching down at JFK, we hopped in the rental car ( they love us renting cars from them ) and jammed through the Holland tunnel to head to the first mural location, set up by MANA Contemporary in Jersey City. I wasn’t expecting it to be that big, but all I can say was wow! Here’s a look at the first day of work and a taste from across the river. More to come, so stay tuned.
