Walls and Frames, Maximiliano Ruiz, Gestalten, Off The Shelf

Walls and Frames
Fine Art From the Streets
Author: Maximiliano Ruiz
Publisher: Gestalten

This is a big un, not so big on text but big on illustrations. A great inspirational title with approximately 90 artists to choose from. Perfect publication for your library and coffee table for sure!

A weighty book of goodness, it shows how graffiti has changed in public opinion and is now thought of in a more positive rather then negative light. With artists that translate their work from street wall to gallery wall! A quote from this publication explains it perfectly, "What began as an anonymous and illegal act of 'vandalism' has conquered it's discrimination to the point where it has built a respected reputation..."

Some artists that feature in this publication are:
Dan Witz
Blek le Rat
Faith 47
Miss Van
Smash 137
Not just paintings on offer but also sculptures and prints.
