Street Renegades is the only book to document the guerilla element of the new street art from the latest generation of street artists, with photographs of the work and interviews with major players around the world. Graffiti and street art has been hijacked by corporate giants and multinationals, who see it as a shortcut to youth culture. So the new wave of artists is moving in fresh directions. Using the detritus of the urban environment--advertising, fly-tipped rubbish, street signs--the new generation is using different techniques to get their work noticed, subverting the streetscape in 3-D to shock, educate and entertain.

About the Book

Graffiti and street art have been at the heart of visual subcultures for the past thirty years. However, as time progresses the new wave of artists are moving in fresh directions. Corporate giants have been quick to jump on the graffiti bandwagon, perceiving it as a shortcut to youth culture. Even street stickers have been highjacked by the multinationals for advertising.

Frustrated by wholesale corporate theft of the scene, the latest generation of street artists are employing different techniques in their work, different means of dissemination, different materials, different ways of getting their work noticed. Using the detritus of the urban environment advertising, fly-tipped rubbish, street signs the new scene is subverting the streetscape in 3D to shock, educate, and entertain. This book documents the new graffiti with photographs of the work and interviews with major players around the world.
