Graffiti world : street art from five continents by Nicholas Ganz( Book )
18 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,167 libraries worldwide
Graffiti is as old as cities--from the political slogans scribbled on public buildings in ancient Roman cities, to anonymous spray-can art that began appearing on city walls in New York and Philadelphia in the late 1970s, graffiti art has stood the test of time. As hip-hop culture spread from America, graffiti became a worldwide phenomenon, emerging in the 1980s as the symbolic artistic language of young people everywhere and one of the most potent influences on youth-oriented marketing and design. Today's young graffiti artists incorporate a variety of mediums--including stickers, stencils, oils, acrylics, and oil-based chalk--as well as an ever-expanding range of social commentary. With more than 2,000 illustrations by over 150 artists from all over the world and interviews with many of them, this book is a comprehensive survey of graffiti art.--From publisher description

Street logos by Tristan Manco( Book )
20 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 603 libraries worldwide
"Graffiti art is constantly changing. Fresh coats of paint and newly pasted posters appear overnight in cities across the world. New artists, ideas and tactics displace faded images in a perpetual process of renewal and metamorphosis. From Los Angeles to Barcelona, Stockholm to Tokyo, Melbourne to Milan, wall spaces are a breeding ground for graphic and typographic forms as artists unleash their daily creations." "Current graffiti art is reflective of the world around it. Using new materials and techniques, its innovators are creating an original language of forms and images infused with contemporary graphic design and illustration. Fluent in branding and graphic imagery, they have been replacing tags with more personal logos and shifting from typographic to iconographic forms of communication. Subverted signs, spontaneous drawings, powerful symbols are curious characters represent a worldwise outdoor gallery of free art." "Street Logos is a celebration of these developments in twenty-first-century graffiti, an essential sourcebook for all art and design professionals and a delight to everyone excited by the vitality of the street."--Jacket

Make your mark : the new urban artists by Tristan Manco( Book )
11 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 240 libraries worldwide
"In an age when Banksy's installations are protected by Plexiglas and graffiti artists exhibit in galleries as well as on the street, Make Your Mark explores the work of thirty-five urban artists who use mark-making techniques--drawing, painting, and other methods--to create a diverse array of work. Ranging from figurative painting, illustration, and comic book drawing to tattoo art, poster design, and mural-making, the work is stylistically original, often incorporating experimental techniques or elements of the handmade. This is the intersection of traditional and "street" sensibilities, from Mexican-born artist Carlos Donjuán's paintings of masked figures to the atmospheric drawings of Bucharest-based artist Mark Francis Williams, whose work responds to the new shopping malls around his city that offer "a hyper-real, super-beautiful sense of certainty" but conceal an ominous underbelly. Other featured artists include the French illustrator and graffiti artist Bault, the American muralist Zio Ziegler, and the Japanese painter Fuco Ueda. As in his previous books on street art and other nontraditional genres, author Tristan Manco's curatorial eye is a valuable guide at the frontier of a new genre. Students, artists, and anyone interested in art will be inspired by the integrity and grit of these unconventional creators on the rise."--

Anthony Lister : adventure painter by Anthony Lister( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 49 libraries worldwide
Adventure Painter contains a compelling, action-packed mix of Anthony Lister's gallery work and outdoor paintings. With an international following and a general disregard for borders, this prolific street artist and painter has managed to marry the empathy and abjection of 20th century figuration with the irreverence of the street. Born in and currently working out of Australia, the thrust of his work is equally informed by Bacon and Schiele, his childrens drawings and the Chapman brothers. Adventure Painter documents Lister's physical and intellectual travels as he's explored themes ranging from flawed superheroes to characters portraying classical mythology's pop equivalents, with recent work segueing into feminine iconography and ballet as an extreme sport. His contradictory, often carnivalesque, layered action paintings have hung on the walls of solo exhibitions at galleries in Sydney, Miami, New York, Toronto and Melbourne
