Beyond the Street
Order "Beyond the Street. The 100 Leading Figures in Urban Art" by Patrick Nguyen and Stuart Mackenzie (Eds.) (Die Gestalten Verlag 2010), and you will get 2,5 kilos of street art.
Artists and organizers of festivals and galleries are interviewed, and (surprise!) you get a lot of pictures too.
I don´t know if the 100 selected really are the 100 leading figures, and since I´m Norwegian I´m happy to find two in here from my country; DOLK and the Stavanger festival NUART. Thanks to NUART I have also seen works by some of the chosen 100, like Swoon, Blek Le Rat, D*Face, Nick Walker, Herakut and Know Hope.
Just click on the picture above, and you should be able to read who is in this fine book.
