Mammoth Book of Street Art: An Insider's View of Contemporary Street Art and Graffiti from Around the World
Informed by his love of hip hop and grafitti, editor JAKe has compiled a fresh, diverse collection drawn from Rio, Berlin, London, Philadelphia and other street art hotspots. The emphasis is on humour and the artworks venture beyond grafitti to 'installations' such as RONZO's Credit Crunch Monster, cemented in the centre of London's financial district. JAKe brings an insider's awareness of context to this collection which comprises both photographs from his personal archives and a selection of the world's best street art from the artists themselves.
