The UK Street Art team have been invited by Gestalten and Simon de Pury to the exclusive preview of the book Beyond the Street: The 100 Most Important Figures in Urban Art launch this Friday.
Soon to be appearing in the shops, and one to be snapped up, Beyond the Street features interviews with leading artists such as Shepard Fairey, Swoon, and Os Gemeos. The book also offers the views of representatives of the most important sales outlets for street art including Jeffrey Deitch and Jonathan LeVine Gallery. In addition, curators from auction houses such as Christie’s and Phillips de Pury comment on the development of street art in a classical art context. Interviews with key commentators, collectors, and enthusiasts such asMartha Cooper, Wooster Collective, and Agnes B. provide further insight. Brought together, these separate and distinct perspectives create a uniquely authentic collective portrait of street and urban art that is captivating, informative, and entertaining.
