street studio…

Good friend and artist Ghostpatrol recently sent me a copy of a book he has co-produced/written with fellow artist Miso,¬† Allison Young and designer Timba Smits on the unique and ever evolving Melbourne street art scene. The book features the work and words of 10 of Melbourne’s most prolific artists and crews talking about what inspires then to do what they do. It’s a really intimate look into the world of street art from the perspective of those who produce it, and really puts a light on the controversial medium; one which has drawn equal amounts of fire and attention from authorities and admirers. If you can get your hands on a copy, it’s a must have for anybody interested in the street scene from the south end. Published by Thames and Hudson Australia.
