Urban Interventions: Personal Projects in Public Spaces

New book out in February

New book out in February examines the continuum of graff to street art to public art, much of it conceptual.

Releasing in February from Gestalten, Urban Interventions highlights a group of artists whose work is (in essence) a progression from graffiti and street art. Larger in scale, these works challenge viewers to rethink their notions about the urban environment. The volume is edited by R. Klanten, S. Ehmann, and M. Huebner.
