Due to high demand for the recent Delicate Balance print and our desire to do something to support the victims of the November 13 terror attacks in Paris, we made a new print with a different color way and will be sending proceeds to @sweetstufffoundation to benefit those victims. Sweet Stuff Foundation will be dedicating all donations through December 31 to the Paris terror attack victims and their families and we’re pleased to be supporting their call to action to give assistance to the many people whose lives have been affected by the violence of that day. Release Date: TOMORROW: Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 10am PST on ObeyGiant.com. Signed and numbered edition of 450. $60. Limit 1 per person/household. #EiffelTower #EarthCrisis #COP21 #Paris #ClimateChange #obeygiant #obey #shepardfairey #print
