Obey - Blurring the Lines between Corporations and Street Art
Obey has long been blurring the lines between street art and running a corporation.
Well, this new item seems to take that confusion to a new level. This is an actual tag from actual Obey clothing, which has been taken and hung on the streets. The back of the tag has the Obey Manifesto right above the shirt size.
What do people think? Is there a difference between Obey the street artist and Obey the clothing corporation? Does one belong on the streets and not the other? Is commercial success selling out? Or not?
