Preview: XCIA's Street Art Project Book Drops Today
For the past four decades, Hank O’Neal has been photographing street art from around the globe–from the back alleys of New York City to the beaches of Venice, California; from Jim Morrison’s grave in Paris to a section of the Berlin Wall. Featuring hundreds of never-before published photos–from the art of Keith Haring and Richard Hambleton to that of Banksy and Shepard Fairey–XCIA’s photographs deliver a real street art experience.
“Hank O’Neal has a remarkable talent for finding the numinous amid the grime. The same way street artists build upon each other’s work in layers, his photos add additional strata of meaning and vision to their subjects.” – American Photo
The book comes out today, and the publisher Siman Media Works will release an app version in April. In preparation for the book launch the legendary Strand Bookstore in New York City had the artist Toofly paint one of her iconic pieces on the 12th street side of the store.
