The Art of Rebellion – A Book on Street Art
Originally posted on StreetArtLondon.co.uk: As the title suggests this book is the third in the Art of Rebellion series from Publikat. Continuing in the same vein as it forebears Art of Rebellion III contains a wealth of outstanding street art images from all over the globe spread over 200 pages. You can get it here
The breadth of street artists featured in The Art of Rebellion III is impressive to say the least. There are interesting pieces by well known artists such as Blu, Nick Walker, Shephard Fiary, Paul Insect, Zevs, Escif and Zevs but also some focus on less well known artists which is good to see. As you’d expect with from a publication like this, the quality of the photography throughout is excellent. Another nice touch is that the book gives details of where to find out more information on each of the street artists featured.
London is represented in the book by the likes of Paul Insect, Conor Harrington, Eine and Roa. Eine has four whole pages devoted to his work, primarly focussing on his alphabet shutters in Middlesex Street and “The Strangest Week” on Hackney Road. Two of Roa’s London pieces also make an appearance in the book, Roa’s (now buffed) lenticular rabbit from Curtain Road and the Hackney Road beaver.
