A zippy, compact and affordable introduction to Street Craft for all fans of traditional street art or contemporary arts and crafts.
Street Craft is the next chapter in the story of Street Art. From urban crochet to street sculpture, light projections, miniature installations and more, this book brings together artists whose creations are transforming cities around the world.
Twenty-eight entries each offer a short profile of one artist followed by a first-person reflection on what motivates their creativity – and what creativity!
- Tasha Lewis’s blue butterfly swarms bring beauty to derelict corners of New York
- Spidertag intertwines sturdy rope and nails to construct abstract graffiti in Madrid
- Mademoiselle Maurice’s origami and lace graffiti bring a light touch to the streets of Paris and Hong Kong
250 illustrations emphasize the sheer visual variety of these works, from the dark and moody to the bright and cheerful.
