The January 2011 of ARTnews magazine is hitting stands with a cover story I wrote about the new shape of street art. Specifically, it’s a look at the more abstract, geometric, sculptural and conceptual interventions going down in cities across the globe. (That’s Spanish artist Nuria Mora featured on the cover.) You can read the story online, but may I recommend picking up the mag. The article is illustrated with all kinds of incredible pictures, which you won’t be able to see otherwise.
As part of this, there’s a couple of street art-related tomes that really deserve a plug: Trespass: A History of Uncommissioned Urban Art and Urban Interventions: Personal Projects in Public Spaces. These are two very thoughtful books devoted to the subject. Definitely check ‘em out.
As always, thank you for reading!
