Hyperallergic is giving you the chance to win your own copy of The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti! Five lucky winners will receive a copy of the new book The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti and three K-60 Paint Markers from Krink.
Rafael Schacter’s The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti is an extensive exploration of the phenomenon of street art and how it’s regional accents have contributed to a visual culture that spans the globe. From its birthplace in New York to outposts in Tokyo, Kiev, Santiago, and almost every continent, Schacter’s volume gives you a big picture look at the different veins of creativity that are fueling street art today. From the bold graphics of Retna in Los Angeles and Eine in London to conceptual projects by Filippo Minelli in Italy, MOMO in New York, and Homer in Kiev, the spectrum of art is breathtaking. Of particular note for Hyperallergic readers is the aggressively political work of Evan Roth of Detroit, Voina in St. Petersburg, and EPOS 25 in Prague, who all continue to push the limits of unsanctioned public art.
The book launches in NY on Wednesday, November 20 (7pm–9pm) at The Powerhouse Arena (37 Main Street, Dumbo, Brooklyn) (Facebook event), and the free event will feature a conversation with Ron English, David “Chino” Villorente, and Katsu (via Skype), moderated by Schacter himself.
