Description


The essential visual guide to the global phenomenon of graffiti and street art.

With over one thousand works and fifty street artists, Street Art provides an extensive sampling of the latest trends in the world of street art and graffiti. A visual catalogue with an illustrative selection of the avalanche of talent inundating today’s streets in major cities all over the world, including New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, London, and Paris, Street Art includes sections on 3-D, wild style, tags, stencils, and stickers, giving a comprehensive overview of the different types of street art that are predominant in today’s urban landscape.

In the pages of this book the reader will find the starting point for street art of the second decade of the twenty-first century, a melting pot of creativity, originality, color, shape, and texture that seemingly emerges directly from the pavement. The best street art represents the cutting edge of modern artistic vision, fleeting works of art that often mix vibrant colors, unconventional techniques, and, increasingly, political commentary. The 504 pages within showcase sheer talent, expressed without restraint, and a self-taught and above all completely free artistic aesthetic. Street Art, in short, is the art of the future.
