New publication ‘The Mammoth Book of Street art’ is an insider’s selection of the most outstanding graffiti and other street art from the UK and around the world.
Informed by his love of hip hop and graffiti, editor JAKe has compiled a fresh, diverse collection of street art drawn from Rio, Berlin, London, Philadelphia and other street art hotspots. The emphasis is on humour and the artworks venture beyond graffiti to ‘installations’ such as RONZO’s Credit Crunch Monster, cemented in the centre of London’s financial district. JAKe brings an insider’s awareness of context to this collection which comprises both photographs from his personal archives and a selection of the world’s best street art from the artists themselves.
This book is beautifully put together and offers a fantastic global perspective on contemporary street art.
