ABOUT THE ART
Long time friend and man of iconic style, Jason Jessee invited us in to his realm to work together on a collection that we are proud to introduce for Spring 2010. The common thread that ties Jason and OBEY together is the underlying drive to do it yourself. Seeing Jason’s surroundings opened up an understanding of his ability to take everything from found objects to blank pieces of paper and somehow make them intriguing and unique.
Jason pulls from a wealth of knowledge from times past where you hand made objects. Seeing hand tooled leather, metal sculptures and giant wood slabs sitting right along side skateboards, bikes and guns offers a look in to how Jason weaves the past and present together. The OBEY 4 Jason Jessee collection is a hand picked assortment based on some key pieces that have become synonymous with his style as well as an illustration by Shepard and some moments in time captured while visiting him in Watsonville.
