Synopsis

From Steve Powers (Espo) in New York to Kid Zoom in Australia, taking in Banksy's London, Paris as transfigured by Honet and OX, and the gargantuan murals of the Brazilian twins `Os Gemeos', this geographical survey of urban art includes the latest works some of the most prolific and interesting artists from around the world.



Since its genesis on the East Coast of the United States in the late 1960s, street art has travelled to nearly every corner of the globe, morphing into highly ornate and vibrant new styles. This unqiue atlas is the first truly geographical survey of urban art. Featuring specially commissioned works from major graffiti and street art practitioners, it offers you an insider's view of the urban landscape as the artists themselves experience it.



Organized geographically, by continent and by city - from New York,Los Angeles and Montreal in North America, through Mexico City and Buenos Aires in Latin America, to London, Berlin and Madrid in Europe, as well as Sydney and Tokyo in the Pacific - it profiles more than 100 of today's most important artists and features over 700 astonishing artworks.

Dr Rafael Schacter is an anthropologist and curator from London. He co-curated the `Street Art' exhibition at Tate Modern, London, in 2008. He has written for a variety of publications and has lectured on Independent Public Art around the world. His ethnography, Ornament and Order, is based on an ongoing engagement as well as more than two years' in-depth fieldwork with some of the world's most important Independent Public Artists. John Fekner is a multidisciplinary artist from New York City. A pioneer in urban art, much of his work remains site-specific in the streets and includes the hand-cut, painted stencil, I Still Have a Dream, which was installed on the outside wall of Pal's Lounge, Atlanta, Georgia, in honour of Martin Luther King Jr's birthday in 2012.
