Jean-Michel Basquiat and his unique, collage-style paintings rocketed to fame in the 1980s as a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the art world had ever seen. But before that, he was a little boy who saw art everywhere: in poetry books and museums, in games and in the words that we speak, and in the pulsing energy of New York City. Now, award-winning illustrator Javaka Steptoe's vivid text and bold artwork echoing Basquiat's own introduce young readers to the powerful message that art doesn't always have to be neat or clean--and definitely not inside the lines--to be beautiful.USD$17.95
128 pages, Paperback- London based artist Dave the Chimp was one of the first street artists who went outside to paint with brushes and acrylic paint. Since 1996 Dave has been extremely prolific in the streets and galleries and has channeled his talent and passion for skating toward designing skateboards for German Skateboard label Hessenmob.
His original style and bold black lines, all hand painted, are humorous, often incorporating lighthearted social commentary. He has painted public service announcements against smoking, “get out the vote” posters, and is often referred to as a “positive” graffiti artist who is just trying to bring a smile to his neighbor’s faces and some beauty to his run down neighborhood.
However humble his aspirations, Dave the Chimp has managed to have an impact around the world with his art. Included is an interview with the artist and many examples of his fine work on walls as well as graphic projects.
Dave the Chimp is the second publication in the Part of Rebellion Series, monographs focusing on artists from the groundbreaking Art of Rebellion and Art of Rebellion 2 first published in 2004.USD$19.95
128 pages, softcover. Third edition in this remarkably successful series is devoted to one of the greats of the Dutch and European street art scene, Erosie. Active since 1993, Erosie has developed a totally unique style that in his own words "...looks for parallels between and the nuances of the graffiti-codes, the illustrated image, commercial visual language and the traditions of art..." His goals are to use, confirm, deny or question these fields visually and/or conceptually in the quest to define his own personal visual language, which is a mixture of street art and pop art. He uses humor, mixes graffiti lettering with typography, challenges us with puns and wordplay and his illustrative style is a cross between Edward Gorey and Robert Crumb — think no further than the headless chicken or the two rappers, Jay-Z and Nas, battling it out in cartoon form.USD$19.95

96 pages, hardcover- Hailing from Sao Paulo, Brazil, Herbert Baglione has become highly respected and recognized around the world for his distinctly singular work both on the streets and from the studio.

The heart of his work is formed by his relationship to emotional matters such as death, human coldness, family, the world and the work of other artists and his strong desire to retain his sense of wonderment as it pertains to the world around him.USD$19.95

It is assumed that every inch of the world has been explored and charted; that there is nowhere new to go. But perhaps it is the everyday places around us—the cities we live in—that need to be rediscovered. What does it feel like to find the city’s edge, to explore its forgotten tunnels and scale unfinished skyscrapers high above the metropolis? Explore Everything reclaims the city, recasting it as a place for endless adventure.
Plotting expeditions from London, Paris, Berlin, Detroit, Chicago, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, Bradley L. Garrett has evaded urban security in order to experience the city in ways beyond the boundaries of conventional life. He calls it ‘place hacking’: the recoding of closed, secret, hidden and forgotten urban space to make them realms of opportunity.
Explore Everything is an account of the author’s escapades with the London Consolidation Crew, an urban exploration collective.
The book is also a manifesto, combining philosophy, politics and adventure, on our rights to the city and how to understand the twenty-first century metropolis.USD$19.95
This book it has its direct origin on an international call for papers, issued by Pedro Costa and Paula Guerra, which aimed to give body to a publication on the thematic of creative milieus and cultural scenes in contemporary urban spaces. The organizers of that publication were surprised by the great quality and interest of the proposals for papers which were presented, even if many of them were not focused specifically and directly on the “creative milieus” and “urban scenes” approach they were looking for. Interestingly, many of the papers raised the issue of the relation between urban interventions (particularly street art approaches) and public space. That was so stimulating that the authors, drawing also upon previous work on that area, decided to give birth to another project, complementary to the edition of the original idea of book, which would be specifically focused on issues of urban interventions, street art and public space. For that, they joined Pedro Soares Neves, which have been working for years in the field of street art and urban interventions, is executive director of Urbancreativity international research topic on Graffiti, Street Art and Urban Creativity. The diversity of contributions put together in this book acknowledges the variety of debates and perspectives that mark contemporary discussions on the relation between art and public space, with particular reference to the case of graffiti and street art, which attracted most of the contributors that came from various disciplines and backgrounds.

128 pages- Graffiti and street art have been at the heart of visual subcultures for the past thirty years. However, as time progresses the new wave of artists are moving in fresh directions. Corporate giants have been quick to jump on the graffiti bandwagon, perceiving it as a shortcut to youth culture. Even street stickers have been highjacked by the multinationals for advertising.Frustrated by wholesale corporate theft of the scene, the latest generation of street artists are employing different techniques in their work, different means of dissemination, different materials, different ways of getting their work noticed. Using the detritus of the urban environment—advertising, fly-tipped rubbish, street signs—the new scene is subverting the streetscape in 3D to shock, educate, and entertain. This book documents the new graffiti with photographs of the work and interviews with major players around the world.
