Illustrated with full color photography on almost every page, Street Art is an extraordinary, inexpensive artbook that dares to tackle the phenomena of graffiti and street art - the artistic expression of painting on urban walls and the like (ideally with permission from the property owner, distinguishing art from vandalism). This type of art has long and storied history from the images and messages of Pompeii to the colorful and elaborate spray painting of the modern day. A surprising amount of beauty and wit lies within these distinctive street art creations, revealing a world of expression one cannot so easily find in a typical art gallery. Street Art is highly recommended as an addition to any artbook shelf, and its convenient small size make it ideal for art lovers to browse on the go (unlike most other artbooks)!
