The Art of Rebellion 4 – Masterpieces of Urban Art is the latest book from the famous bestselling series. What began in 2003 as the first book ever on street art, then a small collection focusing on the new street art phenomenon, has now entered the fourth round – this time as a solid art book, 216 pages long and as heavy as a phone book!
Author Christian Hundertmark (C100), who himself is active as an urban artist and enjoys the respect of the artists mentioned below, provides an insight into the worldwide urban art scene. The concept of the book differs from the majority of street art books. For this book, each artist was asked to send only his favorite, personal work together with a short text explaining why this particular work was chosen. To emphasize the special character of the concept, most images are displayed in large format – in contrast to the stamp format images of other publications.
Because works with visual and substantive graffiti influences are included, an attempt is made in this band to close the gap between the respect for graffiti writers and street artists. That is why many big names from the graffiti scene, such as Nug, Egs, Dmote, Delta, Zedz or HoNet, line up with famous street artists such as The London Police, El Tono, Nuria Mora, Dave Kinsey, SpY or Slinkachu.
“One of the most successful street art series ever published with 100,000 copies in print, Art of Rebellion was the originator, presenting the finest artwork ever created by artists on the street worldwide.
