MURAL ART: Vol 2 (BOOK)
The book MURAL ART Vol.2 – MURALS ON HUGE PUBLIC SURFACES AROUND THE WORLD follows on in old manner to the impressive murals of the first edition. On 272 pages, landscape format, once more the reader can go on an optical journey around the world, meeting over 120 artists, crews and organizations of the international scene around their best facades and walls. From Europe to Africa, from America to Asia and Oceania are presented 1000 walls with techniques from graffiti and stencil to trompe l’œil, suiting after everybody’s fancy.
The focus is on the increasing disappearance of the limits of traditional painting and street art. Where does traditional painting end and where starts street art?
