Exit through the gift shop by Banksy( Visual )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1,728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the inside story of Street Art - a brutal and revealing account of what happens when fame, money and vandalism collide. It follows an eccentric Los Angeles based French shop-keeper turned amateur film-maker as he attempts to capture many of the world's most infamous vandals on camera, only to have British stencil artist Banksy turn the camcorder back on its owner with wildly unexpected results. This fascinating study of low-level criminality, comradeship, and incompetence is modern-day fairytale ... with bolt cutters." -- Back of container

Bomb it( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film tells the story of graffiti from its cave-painting ancestors through its notorious explosion in New York City during the 70's and 80's as living museums appeared on trains rolling between the Bronx and Brooklyn. This film explores the many manifestations of "bombing," the global graffiti culture where the love of art and ego clashes explosively with law and order. From New York, Tokyo, Berlin, Barcelona, Cape Town, and Sao Paulo, each city boasts its own unique style and form of graffiti, and artists. Through grainy night vision footage and interviews, graffiti writers explain why they risk arrest and injury to express themselves, to reflect their society, and engage in a battle for control over the urban visual landscape. A study of the power of art to disturb, protest, and enlighten
Mayday : the art of Shepard Fairey by Jeffrey Deitch( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The final exhibition before the closing of New York's seminal Deitch Projects, May Day is simultaneously a call for heightened awareness and a celebration of the rebirth embodied in revolutionary movements. May Day presents an evocative collection of paintings from one of the most important artists of our time. Portraits of advocates of the working class and oppressed define the collection. Fairey stakes the claim that artists, musicians and writers such as Joe Strummer, Jean Michel Basquiat and Cornel West all have parts to play in stimulating response to injustice. With energy and urgency befitting the title May Day, Fairey captures the radical spirit of his subjects. Says Fairey, "These people I'm portraying were all revolutionary, in one sense or another. They started out on the margins of culture and ended up changing the mainstream. When we celebrate big steps that were made in the past, it reminds us that big steps can be made in the future."--Pub. desc

Stoked : the rise and fall of Gator( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark 'Gator' Rogowski was a celebrity with a six-figure income at age 17 and at 24 convicted of rape and murder, sentenced to prison for 31 years to life. Sexy, good looking and charismatic, he became one of the faces of skateboarding during that mid-Eighties moment when, as a newly monetized 'sport' it moved from its punk rock roots in Southern California out into Middle America. Utilizing archival footage, extensive interviews of friends, skating contemporaries, business associates, and journalists, along with audio commentary recorded in prison by Gator himself, this film is the result of six years of persistence and investigation. The subject, however, is how the commercialization of a once authentic youth culture curdled the fortunes-and psyche-of its first golden boy
Shepard Fairey Inc. : artist, professional, vandal by G. James Daichendt( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shepard Fairey Inc. - Artist/Professional/Vandal, is the first treatment of his extraordinary domain that is not an authorized product of his studio. From clothing and advertising to the world of fine art, the reach of this "street artist" extends to all aspects of society; yet given his great success, he is also the target of critics and detractors. He has challenged conventions, formulas, paradigms, and traditional borders that make many uncomfortable, spurring consistent debate over the legitimacy of his artwork, the authenticity of his background, and the ethics of his design processes. By reflecting on the many layers of being an antimodern artist, we learn much about both the current state of the art world and Fairey's influence on it. Featuring a wide variety of remarkable color photographs and a foreword by Robbie Conal, Shepard Fairey Inc. gives us a fresh, objective understanding of the work of this astonishing artist"--Provided by publisher

Obey: covert to overt : the under/over-ground art by Shepard Fairey( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seminal artist's recent art and poster works, and his triumphant return to his street art roots with murals, all in work never before published. Shepard Fairey rose out of the skateboarding scene, creating his Andre the Giant Has a Posse sticker campaign in the late 80's, and has since achieved a mainstream recognition that most street artists never find. Fairey's Hope poster, created during Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, is arguably the most iconic American image since Uncle Sam. Fairey has become a pop culture icon himself, though he has remained true to his street art roots. "Obey Covert to overt" showcases his most recent evolution from works on paper to grander art installations, cross cultural artworks, and music/art collaborations. The book also includes his ubiquitous streetwear and chronicles his return to public artworks. His signature blend of politics, street culture, and art makes Fairey unlike any other subculture street artist working today.0This book showcases the significant amount of art he has created the last several years, street murals, mixed media installations, art/music events, countless silk screens, and work from his extremely successful "Obey" brand

Eleven Spring by Shepard Fairey( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In December of 2006, an unlikely group of nearly 100 street artists from all over the world came together to participate in an art show celebrating Eleven Spring Street, long a premiere destination on the international Street Art map. The New York Times wrote, "One of the best shows of the season flamed past just before Christmas: a weekend long display of graffiti created by artists from around the world at, and in honor of, 11 Spring Street." The methodology was mixed media to the max: Wheat paste, paper, spray paint, house paint, markers, metal objects, found objects… the result was chaotic yet undeniably arresting. Marc and Sara Schiller of the Wooster Collective curated the three-day event, calling the show Wooster on Spring. It featured street art superstars like Shepard Fairey and Swoon as well as emergent talents including JR, Prune, and Doze Green. The result was a potent mix of artists who brought the street inside by re-claiming the walls for themselves, and a tipping point for what has become an international art world phenomenon. The three-day public viewing session was a landmark downtown event that drew crowds in the thousands, with people waiting up to five hours to get inside. With an Introduction by Shepard Fairey, an Afterword by JR, and an essay from Randy Kennedy of The New York Times, [this book] captures an important moment in Street Art's history. All the works that were created for the show were subsequently covered up or destroyed by renovation. [This book] allows these vibrant works to live again, ready for a new generation of admirers to enjoy and celebrate."
Let fury have the hour( Visual )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his feature directorial debut, author and visual artist Antonino D'Ambrosio spins a lively social history that chronicles how a generation of artists, thinkers, and activists channeled their creativity into an organized response and resistance to the reactionary politics that increasingly defined American culture in the 1980s. This idea of art as political statement came to be known as 'creative response,' and, through insightful and energetic interviews with more than 50 influential creative voices, D'Ambrosio traces the movement from its earliest inklings in the Reagan-Thatcher era through three decades of social and political change. An exuberant mixed media collage that incorporates graphic art, music, animation, and spoken word ... D'Ambrosio's stylish and inspirational film pays due homage to the parallel creative history of late 20th-century America in the words and work of the artists themselves."
