Obey for Surfrider Foundation

  • Posted by on September 13, 2010 in Art
  • It's hard to believe it's been 26 years since a handful of Malibu shredders started Surfrider Foundation. Now 50,000 members strong, it's probably safe to say Surfrider has done more for the cause of coastal conservation than any other nonprofit. Last year, to mark the 25th anniversary, Surfrider enlisted a bunch of artists, including Barry McGee, Thomas Campbell, and Raymond Pettibon, to create interpretations of 25 famous waves around the world.

    For his piece, Shepard Fairey took a Tom Servais photograph of Jaws, the legendary big wave break off Maui, and made this mixed media work based on it. The painting was auctioned off at Surfrider's Art for the Oceans event last year, but you can get in on the action by donating to Surfrider through the Obey Awareness program, or by copping an Obey t-shirt with the Jaws graphic here. All proceeds go to Surfrider Foundation.
