thames & hudson :: street | studio > the place of street art in melbourne
The street art scene in Melbourne is as infamous as it is misunderstood, loved and hated in various measures, and always negotiated territory between artists and audience. This book by criminologist and arts advocate Alison Young, and artists Ghostpatrol, Miso & Timba Smits - is an interesting snapshot of a slice of the Melbourne street arts scene. Featuring work by Niels Oeltjen / Tom Civil / Tai Snaith / Ghostpatrol / Ash Keating / Al Stark / Miso / Twoone / Mic Porter and the Everfresh Crew, the authors explore the fuzzy distinctions between art exercised on the streets and in studios. Highly recommended.
