This time of Canadian animal rights and environmental activist, Paul Watson. Like most Obey Giant prints, this one comes in two different colorways, Light Blue and Dark Blue. Shepard Fairey prints are extremely exclusive, and these 18 x 24 Paul Watson portraits are. There will be 450 signed and numbered portraits signed by Shepard Fairey and Captin Paul Watson at $55 each. A portion of the proceeds are going to go to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

Paul is also the founder and president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS), which is a direct action group devoted to marine conservation. His conservation group even got a reality show called “Whale Wars” on Animal Planet. On the show, Paul and his crew attempt to deter Japanese ships that hunt whales off the coast of Antarctica. On January 6th, of this year, Paul and his crew was involved in a collision at sea with the Japanese vessel Shonan Maru 2, which was engaged in security and support for the whaling fleet.

Out of the crew of six from the Ady Gil (which were at first reported unharmed), one New Zealand cameraman sustained broken ribs. The third vessel at location, Sea Shepherd’s Bob Barker, and the Shonan Maru 2, took footage of the incident, and video of the incident was released by the Institute of Cetacean Research and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
