"This Prevent Police Boredom print is an updated version of my first 'art' screen print (a print on paper rather than just on a t-shirt) from 1989. Long before I was arrested for street art, I was being hassled and arrested by the cops for skateboarding. I was inspired by the skateboard culture maxim of 'question authority' and Black Flag’s song 'Police Story' and created this image of a kid holding a skateboard being grabbed by a cop. I thought this would be a great image to update for the DIY skateboard show at Subliminal Projects because the first versions I made of Prevent Police Boredom for a sticker and a t-shirt included the text 'Prevent police boredom… skateboard' in Old English, but my art teacher told me to leave the text off of the print on paper. I now have a poster version of the art which includes that essential text and I made 25 versions with different hand-stenciled backgrounds with my tributes to classic 80’s skate and punk iconography. Each of the stenciled versions has unique embellishment." – Shepard Fairey
The poster is Mint Condition and Stored Flat.
