Urban Interventions

Gestalten has just released a brilliant book, Urban Interventions. There are so many “street art” books out there with a haphazard selection of derivative work that I’ve become a bit jaded. This book is such a nice surprise, bursting with energy and filled with amazing work I’ve never seen before.

    Urban interventions are the next generation of artwork to hit public space and It is the first book to document these very current, personal art projects in a comprehensive way. I’ll definitely recommend it.

      i think there have been some similar books around before, take, for example The Art Of Rebellion 1 and 2. And it feels that the urban intervention genre had already hit its (popularity) peak a few years ago.
      Anyway this seems a book worth checking out

    awesome!
