Street art is more than artistically acknowledged graffiti. This book highlights this new art form in all its facets, beyond the cliches. From installation art to socially critical tags to photo-realistic mural paintings: street art exists in all forms and sizes. ‘Street Art Today’ maps the genre and investigates new tendencies such as ecological street art, the naive wave, trompe l’oeil… The core of the book is a Who’s Who of the international street art scene, a list of the 50 most influential street artists, from Banksy to Pixel Pancho. Including 10 revealing and surprising interviews.
Street Art Today features interviews with Elian, Fintan Magee, Alexis Diaz, Ella & Pitr, Faith47, Guido van Helten, and Levalet, alongside spotlights on many artists including Maya Hayuk, ETAM Cru, Nychos, Aryz, Phlegm, Os Gemeos, Roa, Telmo Miel, Case Maclaim, Rone, Tristan Eaton, Space Invader, JR, Banksy, and so many more.
Bjorn Van Poucke is the founder of Street Art Belgium and has organised many Street Art Festivals. He is well known to many artists and is an expert in social media.
