Product Description
Vigorously aesthetic, overtly political and played out in the urban social space, graffiti is the new mural art. This overdue consideration of the role and significance of graffiti within the art historical canon, presents an impressive roster of artists, including WK Interact, Shepard Fairey, Viagrafic, Mike Giant, and Os Gemeos, to name but a few.
This volume features a variety of approaches from modern mediums such as stencil to the ancient method of fresco. Working on a monumental scale and creating images that are readily accessible to the masses, this is the rejuvenation of muralism, updated for the age of graffiti.
