The Clash are my all-time favorite band and their frontman, Joe Strummer, is a hero of mine for his music, lyrics, wit, compassion for the underdog, and stance against injustice. To celebrate the release of JOE STRUMMER 002 and in honor of Joe's 70th birthday, a limited edition print inspired by the Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros song, JOHNNY APPLESEED, will be available on 9/20 exclusively from the official Joe Strummer store: https://shop.joestrummer.com with an alternate version available on obeygiant.com. Joe's lyric "If you're after getting the honey, then you don't go killing all the bees" applies to lots of things, like mistreating factory workers, but for me the idea that bees are pollinators who are crucial to sustaining Earth's fragile eco-systems is a powerful idea. I hope to honor Joe's music and extend his ideas with my No Bees No Honey print. A portion of proceeds will go to the Joe Strummer Foundation.
No Bees No Honey. 18 x 24 inches. Screen print on thick cream Speckletone paper. Signed by Shepard Fairey. Numbered edition of 325. Comes with a Digital Certificate of Authenticity provided by Verisart. $70. Proceeds go to Joe Strummer Foundation.
