Summary "A collection of street art and graffiti by 300 of the most respected street artists in 25 countries, Global Street Art explores what happens when the artform is separated from the crime. Organized by type and location, it investigates the media that the artists work with, the "canvases" they work on, the themes that arise and the "galleries" in which the works are displayed. Also examined is how this new public space is affecting our cities and moving art into the future. Along the way, the author shares his best stories about documenting street art, featuring big guns, massive dogs and abandoned buildings." - Back cover.
