Featuring every image in Robbie Conal’s storied poster campaigns, this is the definitive history of ‘America’s foremost street artist’ (Washington Post). A foreword by Shepard Fairey, American contemporary street artist and activist, sets the scene. Conal’s satirical posters of political figures are given richer context as his life story is insightfully joined with art criticism by expert Daichendt. Conal’s art has been featured on CBS This Morning, on Charlie Rose, and in Time, Newsweek, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, and others. Conal has received a National Endowment for the Arts Individual Artist Grant and many other honours.
G. James Daichendt, EdD (Carlsbad, CA), is professor of art history at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. He is the author of several books and an art critic and journalist for Artbound on the nation’s largest public television station, KCET.
