Looks at how how Street evolved from its origins in the 1970s New York graffiti scene to embrace new materials, styles and techniques, tracing how this marginal art form graduated into art galleries and the art market, while also influencing design, fashion, advertising and visual culture.
Despite having found a place in the art world, Street Art’s qualifications are often disputed both by the art establishment and practitioners themselves, all concerned with notions of authenticity. Examining Street Art’s history in detail, this book takes in the movement’s significant artists and artworks, styles, materials and methods, and showcases the works that have come to define it more than any other.
