OBEY Giant

Andre the Giant Has a Posse is a street art campaign based on an original design by Frank Shepard Fairey created in 1989 while Fairey was a student at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). At the time Fairey declared the campaign to be “an experiment in phenomenology.” Over time the artwork has been reused in a number of ways and has become a world-wide pataphysical movement, following in the footsteps of Ivan Stang’s Church of the SubGenius and populist WWII icon Kilroy Was Here. At the same time, Fairey’s work has evolved stylistically and semantically into the OBEY Giant campaign.
