This cute book is soon to join the collection. Street Craft, by Rikka Kuittinen is a collection of art works, including street sculpture, yarn bombing, ‘urban crochet’, light installation and more, which are transforming tiny corners of cities around the world.
28 artists are featured, each providing a short bio and then what inspires them, followed by some glorious photographs of their works. Works range from the dark to bright and cheerful and are all emotive.
Street Craft is becoming a cultural phenomena, you’d be hard pressed to find a populated area that doesn’t feature some ‘guerrilla art‘ – not always legal, sometimes unappreciated, but always making a comment.
This and other street art books are available at the Library.
