ABOUT THE ART

"This Friday, Feb 6. (2015) check out the Dennis Morris - Bob Marley show “Revolutionary Dreams,” celebrating what would be Bob’s 70th birthday, opening at Known Gallery. I created a Bob Marley print based on one of Dennis’s photos for this show, that will be for sale there with a limited number to be released on our website on the following Tuesday. The Bob Marley print is an edition of 500. Hope to see you there!"

-Shepard

The Bob Marley print is based on a photo by Dennis Morris.

Quote from Shepard’s 20th Year Supply & Demand:

“I bought Bob Marley’s Rastaman Vibrations shortly after I started skateboarding in 1984, purely because the only good skateboard ramp where I lived was called “The Rasta Ramp.” I had mostly been listening to punk rock, but I was excited to discover reggae, which even more boldly embodied many of the same elements of social protest as punk but in a way that was much more palatable to my parents.

I think my parents bought me Bob Marley and the Wailers records for every Christmas or birthday until I had accumulated their entire catalog; my very conservative grandmother even bought me a Bob Marley shirt from Jamaica. I leaned more towards punk, but some punk bands, most notably Bad Brains, embraced both punk and reggae. Bob Marley’s music always cheered me up during my high-school years of personal struggle. I’m always inspired by how steadfast and positive Bob was.”
