Art As A Weapon Documentary Project featuring Shepard Fairey

Engaging the culture of humans rights in Myanmar, Shepherd Fairey inspired this documentary exploring the parallel between street art and free speech. The phrase “Art As A Weapon” refers to the struggle in Burma between Buddhist values and political oppression. This theme is investigated by Fairey – founder of subversive label OBEY, who has created a large-scale illustrated mural of a Burmese monk in an attempt to draw attention to this contentious issue. Visit the hompage for the Art Is A Weapon movement here as well as contribute to their Kick Starter movement.
