In modern art, Street Art is not easy to define. It is continually evolving, both within the market and outside of it. In some ways it is an appreciated injection of creativity for the suburbs and city streets, and in other ways is considered to be on the edge of vandalism. However, it is certainly one of the most recent and apparent phenomena to have arrived on the urban art scene in modern times.
This volume covers a lack of information on the subject today, helping the reader to understand the movement on a global level and to recreate the recent history of the art form as well as to identify its precise ancestors: from the art of cave men and women to the Mexican murales, from the counterculture movements of the 1960s and 1970s to Keith Harring, and on to the writers, stencil muralists, as well as Banksy, Blu, Ericailcane, JR, and all of the new stars of the “art on the street”.
