Urban Interventions – The Book

Urban interventions are – in addition to graffiti and classical street art – my main topic and I think the majority of you has also a partiality for it. For that reason, I will present you a new book, called “Urban Interventions – Personal Projects in Public Places”…

“Evolving from graffiti and street art, urban interventions are the next generation of artwork to hit public space. Using any and all of the components that make up urban and rural landscapes, these mostly spatial interventions bring art to the masses.

They turn the street into a studio, laboratory, club, and gallery. Modified traffic signs, swings at bus stops, and images created out of sand or snow challenge us to rediscover our environment and interact with it in new ways. The work is an intelligent and critical commentary on the planning, use, and commercialization of public space.” (press release)

I think, the 256 pages, full color book, with artworks in cities including New York and London, but also in countries such as China, Columbia, and Turkey, is the first about that special form of urban art. It will be released next month and I will be one of the first who get it…!
