Street Art. The Graffiti Revolution
First published in hardback in 2008, this is the first account of the development of street art as a global phenomenon within the context of the history of art. This book defines street art as a genre related to, but distinct from graffiti writing, tracing its history from cave painting through to the Paris walls photographed by Brassai in the 1920s and on to the often witty, sophisticated imagery found on city streets today. The book will feature new and exclusive interviews with key figures associated with street art of the last thirty-five years, including Henry Chalfant, Lady Pink, Lee Quinones, Jenny Holzer, Blek Le Rat, Goldie, Mode 2, Barry McGee (Twist), Shepard Fairy (Obey), Futura 2000, Malcolm McLaren, Miss Van and Os Gemeos.
