Exit through the gift shop by Banksy( Visual )
14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 318 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
Bomb it ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 302 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 )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 186 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 128 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 )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 71 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
