TIMEBOMB Trading Inc is excited to announce that they are the exclusive Canadian distributor for Obey starting Spring 2018.
OBEY Clothing President Don Juncal remarks, “I have known Garret Louie for over 15 years, and have admired the businesses he and his partners have built. It’s wonderful that after all these years, the OBEY Clothing brand and Timebomb Trading are finally working together.”
OBEY Clothing was founded on the art, design and ideals of Shepard Fairey. What started for Fairey with an absurd sticker he created in 1989 while studying at the Rhode Island School of Design has since evolved into a worldwide street art campaign, as well as an acclaimed body of fine art. OBEY Clothing was formed in 2001 as an extension of Shepard’s range of work. Aligned with his populist views, clothing became another canvas to spread his art and message to the people. The clothing is heavily inspired by classic military design, work wear basics, as well as the elements and cultural movements Shepard has based his art career on. Through designers Mike Ternosky and Erin Wignall, Shepard works to create designs that represent his influences, ideals and philosophy.
Garret Louie, Director/Co-Owner at Timebomb – “I’ve always been a big fan of OBEY as their culture aligns exactly with what we’re about. I really respect how they have been able to change with the times and stand strong after all these years”.
