Back in July, Shepard Fairey and the Obey Crew ventured into Copenhagen. What started as a peaceful global mission, turned into something completely different, gnarly at times! This 4 part video series chronicles their time there. While ultimately it all worked out for the best, this particular adventure demonstrates how tough it is to go into another country and blend in when you are clearly out of your element. Even tougher when you go as an artist attempting to create a global peace message in a city torn by war & anger. Art, commerce, punk rock DIY ethos and politics all clash in this miniseries. The video series delivers a pretty powerful message. Sometimes you have to take a good ass kicking for the love of your art. Enjoy!
