Talk About Street Art

From the OBEY Giant posters to Banksy’s stencils and from iconic bubble letter tags to mosaic space invaders, street art is omnipresent.
This book covers all aspects of an art form that is often underappreciated, ephemeral, and illegal. Street art is found on every continent, and the book gives focus to each country and its own modes of expression and specificities.

“Part of an ongoing series edited by art journalist Elisabeth Couturier, Talk About Street Art is a sort of primer on the phenomenon. Each book answers basic questions about a style, like explaining its origins, techniques, commercial possibilities, how it differs from north to south, and short biographies of key artists in the field. This one, by Jerome Catz, is full of images from around the world and kissed with the art form's promise.” –The Star Ledger
