Street Art

We rated this book:


Graffiti and street art have grown from small acts of rebellion and creativity secreted around the world to one of the most dynamic and socially conscious art forms in the world today. Seemingly every major city has masterpieces appearing on walls, building facades, and other established spaces, and names like Banksy continue to grow in popularity, stature, and influence with each passing day.

Street Art collects photographs of dozens of works of artistic rebellion from cities as disparate as Detroit, Paris, Sao Paulo, and Reykjavik to show off these wonderful, mind-blowing pieces, all documented in vivid color, bringing their massive scale, ambition, and artistic chutzpah right into your living room.

This is an absolutely gorgeous book, one that treats the art form with the respect it deserves, interviewing some of the key names in the movement, recommending art shows and other events centered around these remarkable works, and more. This is a celebration of visceral, heartfelt emotion presented on a canvas unlike any other, and the sheer depth and breadth of the style occurring globally today is amazing.

Street Art is as humbling and engrossing as it is delightful to flip through.
