Evolving from graffiti and street art, the next wave of artwork is now hitting public spaces. This book is a striking collection of these personal, often playful and thought-provoking sculptures and installations in urban surroundings that use and react to walls, traffic signs, trees, advertisements, trashcans and any and all elements of the modern city.
URBAN INTERVENTIONS is the first book to document these very current art projects – as well as their interplay with fine art, architecture, performance, installation, activism, urbanism – in a comprehensive way. The perceptive work brings art to the masses and helps us to rediscover our every day surroundings. It challenges us to question if cities we have are the cities we need while edding a touch of magic to mundane places and situations.
