For fifty years, graffiti and street art have been challenging conventions and stimulating debate around our perceptions of what constitutes art. As the genre enters its sixth decade, this ground-breaking book presents a new interpretation of where street art and graffiti are situated today. Introducing the concept of 'Intermural Art' - art in between the walls - Rafael Schacter presents a genre at a key moment of transition. While many street and graffiti artists are still challenging the orthodoxies of the public sphere, an increasingly large group are reshaping the field by no longer furtively entering the institution, no longer slavishly reproducing exterior works inside, but instead attempting to merge out and in to create a form that articulates graffiti, street and contemporary-art influences. Through forty profiles of the leading proponents of this new approach from around the globe, Rafael Schacter presents a compelling analysis for 'Intermural Art' while also showcasing some of the boldest work being made currently.USD$69.95

Street art has firmly established itself as a facet and attitude in the landscape
of contemporary art. Today, young artists are going beyond their work on the streets to present their innovative styles in galleries. They are aspiring to follow in the footsteps of stars of the scene such as Shepard Fairey, Faile, and Os GÃªmeos, who have already exhibited their work in renowned museums including the Tate Modern and Fondation Cartier. Walls & Frames documents the work of this next generation of street artists. The book presents the evolution of these ambitious talents, who are keeping their connection to the street alive while establishing themselves in the art market with work in traditional formats such as painting, sculpture, installation, and prints. It shows how artists who work with limited time and a small selection of tools on the street are developing other styles, concepts, and techniques in the studio that are, in turn, influencing the direction of contemporary art. Interviews with the artists and other insiders as well as an insightful text by the curator Maximiliano Ruiz illuminate the context, working methods, and perspectives involved in this inspiring scene. Walls & Frames takes a detailed and authentic look at the intersection of young street art and contemporary art. Its fresh outlook appeals to those familiar with these developments and new to the scene as well as to a wide
range of artists, collectors, gallerists, journalists, and designers. The book presents current work by artists from around the world including AJ Fosik, Alexandros Vasmoulakis, Alexone, Amose, Andrew McAttee, Anthony Lister, Axel Void, Ben Frost, Blek le Rat, Bom-K, Boris Hoppek, Calma, Conor Harrington, Dan Witz, Dave Kinsey, Dixon, Docteur Gecko, Doze Green, Dran, Eelus, Eine, Elbow Toe, Evol, Fefe Talavera, Gaia, George Morton, Herakut,

Vhils is undoubtedly one of the most skilled and talented young artists on the urban art scene today. He creates technically masterful, contemporary portraits by not only adding paint or other materials onto surfaces, but also carving, drilling, scratching, ripping, or blasting his images out of walls. With nothing less than archeological meticulousness, Vhils penetrates through countless layers of posters, dirt, and plaster to set free the unsettlingly poetic images hidden in urban spaces.USD$60.00
288 Pages, full color, hardcover: This book is a striking collection of the personal, often playful and thought-provoking installations in urban environments that use and react to walls, traffic signs, trees, ads, and any and all elements of the modern city. It is the first book to document these very current art projects – as well as their interplay with fine art, architecture, performance, installation, activism and urbanism – in a comprehensive way. This perceptive work brings art to the masses and helps us to rediscover our every day surroundings. It challenges us to question if the cities we have are the cities we need while adding a touch of magic to mundane places and situations.USD$69.00
