Wonderwalls - Street Art und Designer Toys

  • Sold out


Street art originally emerged from the protest cultures, civil disobedience and countercultural movements of the 1960s and 1970s, when young graffiti artists in the USA began spraying their names or simple signs on houses and underground cars. Later, more and more sophisticated images were created that covered entire building walls. The entire city became a gallery. The pioneers took great risks and mostly remained anonymous due to illegal actions. Many of the artists presented come from the skateboard and graffiti scene, grew up with figures like Bart Simpson and Luke Skywalker and were influenced by the pop culture icons of the 1980s and 1990s.
Some street artists are now represented internationally by major galleries and, like the pop artist KAWS, are also commercially successful with designer toys. In the artistic fantasy figures, the New York street culture of hip-hop, breakdancing and graffiti merge with Japanese manga culture to create a visual cosmos all of its own.

The book presents artwork from Banksy, Javier Calleja, Martha Cooper, Shepard Fairey, Daniel & Geo Fuchs, Herakut, JR, KAWS, Conny Maier, Takashi Murakami, Prune Nourry, Osgemeos, Josh Sperling, Swoon, Ricky Powell, Stefan Marx and many more.
