Angeles Street Art is an investigation of the global phenomenon of street art. Told from the perspective of artists working in Los Angeles, it offers a new vantage point for understanding an art form that is widely popular yet has been the subject of speculation and much uncertainty.

Questions whether street art is the next major art movement or if it a simply a trend and the differences between graffiti and street art are explored. A number of counterintuitive themes plague street art but that does not stop the excitement and enthusiasm surrounding this engaging and exciting art form.

Street art has exploded as a creative outlet and progressed from a counter culture movement based in graffiti in previous decades to a legitimate business platform in design, fashion, film, publishing, and art. The author explores the uniqueness of L.A. along with some of the successes and pitfalls these creative artists encounter. The major themes presented will familiarize the reader with the street art scene in L.A. and add new meaning to this creative capital.

Next Saturday, November 10th the first 100 copies of “Stay Up! Los Angeles Street Art” will be available at The Last Bookstore from 3-5pm in Los Angeles. Some really great artists are showing up to sign books and hang out including The Status Faction, Blinky Óne, Septerhed, Snyder Art and Design, Cyrcle. SMEAR, Theforestlawn and photographer Lord Jim.
