Street Art : Contemporary Prints
Graffiti has evolved into a rich and democratic form of visual expression that is now most often labelled 'street art'. As it matures, street art has moved indoors; galleries now exhibit and sell limited-edition prints by established artists with recognizable self-created brands, including Banksy, Blek Le Rat, Shepard Fairey, Eine and Miss Tic.
This beautiful book is the first to look specifically at street art prints – now highly prized in their own right. It introduces the artists, symbols and subject matter that dominate the genre and places their prints in the wider context of urban art. The book jacket unfolds into a poster.
