“I’m a big fan of #DavidLynch and have been honored to create art for the David Lynch Foundation (@davidlynchfoundation) in the past. I think David is a unique personality with an unusual fearlessness in his art making whether it be film, music, or visual art. David’s approach to art is largely informed by his practice of meditation which has allowed him to ignore the static and reach for something deeper without being paralyzed by fear of failure, which is why I also think it’s great to support programs of Transcendental Meditation for all people. I’m excited by this outlook on creativity and I’m happy to do my part to help the effort.” - Shepard

For @obeyclothing's latest #OBEYAwareness campaign, they’ve partnered with the #DavidLynchFoundation , "which brings mediation to those suffering from stress and toxic stress." 100% of the profits generated from the sale of the David Lynch Awareness Tee will go to the Foundation to help provide #TranscendentalMeditation to those in need.

Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, The Doors drummer John Densmore, Garbage singer Shirley Manson, and I are celebrating music and activism with WERD, a “live magazine” at The Theatre at Ace Hotel (@theatre_acedtla) in #LosAngeles on April 28th! All proceeds from the event are going back into arts education benefitting P.S. Arts (@ps_arts). I’m excited to speak with Perry and discuss art and music, and I’m looking forward to watching the conversation between Shirley Manson and my good friend John Densmore. There will be acoustic performances and an all-star jam by artists still to be announced. I wouldn’t be where I am today without my education, so I’m proud to participate in this event and do my part to help provide funding for the arts. Tickets ($55 and $33.50) go on sale this Friday, March 24 at 10AM (PDT) at AXS.com (link in bio). See you there!

Thank you @howie_brdk for capturing my mural in Downtown, #Cincinnati on your #Leica !

Floral patterns have been a part of my art practice for many years. I like the dichotomy of the hypnotic classic floral pattern against the more cautionary element of the gas nozzle, which forces the viewer to take a deeper look beyond the surface. 📷: @jonathanfurlong

@realdonaldtrump just announced that he is recommending full termination of funding of the National Endowment for the Arts (@neaarts) and National Endowment for the Humanities (@nehgov), the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and the Institute for Museum and Library Services (@us_imls), for Fiscal Year 2018. Trump is the first ever American President to push to eliminate funding for ALL of the nation’s cultural agencies.

Not only does Trump’s agenda reveal how indifferent he is to programs that enrich people’s lives regardless of their economic standing, but he must also be ignorant to the positive impact the arts and culture make economically. Let’s face it, one of the main things the U.S. produces and exports is culture! Trump’s idea is that the arts, EPA, etc… need to be cut to increase military spending. The U.S. outspends on the military against the next eight highest funded countries combined. In fact, Trump’s proposed $50 billion increase in military spending equals 70% of China’s ENTIRE military funding.
If you are like me, and you think the arts, culture, and public broadcasting are things that are important to our quality of life and national character, use your voice to protest Trump’s proposal.

I painted this Mandala Ornament mural in Miami in 2010. This was the first time I used my stencil process to paint a large mural. Before 2010 most of my murals were wheat pasted. Thank you to @kaotik954 for sharing this great photo. #shepardfairey #obeygiant #miami #publicart #mural

I’ll be traveling to #Australia in June to headline @vividsydney's Game-Changer talk on Saturday, June 17th at the Sydney Town Hall!
