  4. Walls and Frames - Fine Art from the Street

    210 Pages, full color, hardcover.

    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 Gêmeos, 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,

  5. Vhils

    160 pages, full color, hardcover.

    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.

  12. Delusional - The Story of Jonathan LeVine Gallery

    Widely revered as the “artists’ gallerist,” Jonathan LeVine has nourished a much needed alternative viewpoint within the stilted New York art market. In the pages of Delusional, readers will discover the fascinating backstory that brought this punk kid from Trenton to the hallowed gallery walls of Chelsea.

    LeVine began his career in the arts publishing a fanzine in the 1980s and then curating shows at diverse venues in the 90s. By the turn of the millennium, LeVine had opened up Tin Man Alley, his own gallery located in New Hope, and then Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

    The Jonathan LeVine Gallery was officially launched in New York City in 2005. Since then, LeVine has brought his considerable talents to bear, focusing on work influenced by illustration, comic books, graffiti, street art and pop culture imagery.

    Levine’s featured artists tend to share a strong figurative and narrative inclination and include Doze Green, Shepard Fairey, Audrey Kawasaki, Gary Baseman, Camille Rose Garcia, Tara McPherson, Josh Agle (aka Shag) and a long list of other esteemed artists*.

    Lavish illustrations throughout complete the package.

  13. BANKSY - You Are An Acceptable Level of Threat

    The single best collection of photographs of Banksy's street work. Period. BANKSY - You Are An Acceptable Level of Threat concentrates on this singular artist's iconic imagery, spanning the late '90s up until the end of 2011.

    As Banksy's cheerfully aggressive political work becomes ever more relevant, this comprehensive tome sets about presenting his art in the context of the era he was responding to.

  18. Morris Park Crew The Official History

    No other graffiti crew from New York City’s graffiti heyday conjures up more images of angel dust-smoking, beer-drinking, “crazy white boys,” than the Bronx-born-and-bred writing group Morris Park Crew (MPC). This official history of the crew tells the stories behind the group with never-before-published photos, oral histories from MPC members, and details on the 2009-2010 MPC revival. Starting in 1977, when founding members Slip, Wedge, and Speed started the crew, this account continues with details of how Cap 1 took over and led the crew down its unforgettable path in the 1980s. With a penchant for going to war with rival graffiti crews for train space and territory, which in turn led to the largest city-wide cross-out campaign, the MPC was known as a bunch of thugs who beat, hung, and shot perceived rivals and a group of talent-less “toys.” Wrapped up in this raw tell-all about the bad boys of NYC graffiti, are not just accounts of the crew’s passion for graffiti, but the real-life challenges its young members faced in their urban environment.

    Vandals provides insight into a hidden movement that is dangerously appealing. Instead of simply photographing the finished works, Müller documents the process behind it. Across 192 pages, Vandals reveals the atmosphere, emotional tension, passion and teamwork behind each act of urban vandalism.

  21. World of Urban Decay

    Arresting art photography takes the curious into the depths of worlds that normally remain hidden behind gardens overrun with wild vegetation and tall fences blazoned with “Keep Out!” signs. Photographer Martin ten Bouwhuijs’s regular urban exploration missions throughout Western Europe have culminated in this collection of haunting images made in abandoned hospitals, morgues, monasteries, power plants, schools, factories, swimming pools, and castles. Each location is described in a brief history. Capturing the venues in various states of neglect, these photographs reveal remnants of once-habitable spaces: from furniture still in place but covered in thick dust to dramatic vaulted ceilings speckled in mold and water stains to walls that have given way in complete disrepair. More than 150 dramatic images continually heighten anticipation by showing long views down empty corridors and wide views of rooms with doors that lead elsewhere – you never really know what you are going to see around the next corner.
    Author: Martin ten Bouwhuijs started urban exploration after seeing a TV news report on the subject. He went to his first factory the next day. He lives in the Netherlands.
