Street Art: The Graffiti Revolution by Cedar Lewisohn accounts the history of street art from cave paintings to the controversial, colorful art emerging today on walls found on city streets.
Over 120 photographs of street art from around the world are included in the book, along with interviews with leading street artists of the last thirty five years, including Henry Chalfant, Lady Pink, Blek le Rat, Mode 2, Barry McGee (Twist), Shephard Fairey (Obey), Futura 2000 and Os Gemeos. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this!
