Off The Shelf

Street Art London
Author: Frank Stream 156 Malt
Publisher: Dokument Press

A pleasant handful this one...

As you know London is a hot spot for graffiti in the UK. Everyone who is anyone can generally be found painting on walls, tagging on doors or slappin up stickers in this vibrant City. Global street art stars like Banksy, Alice Pasquini, Obey, Mr Brainwash, Roa and Ron English are just a small number of people to bomb the back streets of the big smoke.

If you are like us and haven't got the time to scot around endless avenues for the illusive Phlegm or Pez piece, then you will appreciate the editors that put this little beauty together. This book offers an ace collection and execution of the still photography which shows us images of our favourite art, has a chat about the artist and tells us the area it can be found (E1, W12, EC1 for example). What more could you ask.

Bit from the Book:
The streets of London are not actually paved with gold but their walls are decorated with the liveliest, freshest, coolest street art in the world. Full of unique quotes from the artists, Street Art London is a eminent opportunity to find the cream of the crop and to be inspired by and acquainted with the street artists of London.

So yeh see it's time to save the shoe leather and splurge on a publication - it will delight your visitor's if it's left on the coffee table as well...
