"Cedar Lewisohn has written the first account of this visual revolution to trace its history from cave painting through to the vibrant art emerging today on the walls of London, Madrid and Sao Paulo, via Brassai's photographs of 1920s Paris and Basquiat and Haring's New York. Superbly illustrated with over 120 colour photographs of street art from around the world, the book includes interviews with leading street art proponents of the last three decades, taking the reader behind their 'tags' to encounter the often mysterious figures who are transforming cities across the globe."--BOOK JACKET." ;
