Publisher's description: Hendrick Beikirch, or ECB, is seeking to change our perception of what graffiti is, or can be - extending its limits. ECB is a German painter working on largescale black and white, or grayscale murals in public spaces worldwide. This new book is a compilation of the artists' work, and provides insight of that work through photographs and interviews. ECB looks for new approaches, and blurs the lines between fine art and graffiti. The scale of his outdoor murals, often of anonymous faces, makes the work accessible to the masses. The astounding scale is made evident in one of his best-known works, Where there is no struggle, there is no strength. Located in Busan, South Korea, the mural of a local fisherman is over 20 stories and measures 70 metres high, making it Asia's tallest mural. Photographs in the book show the work in progress, as well as its context, which is situated against Busan's skyscraper backdrop. Blurring Boundaries is an intimate photographic look at ECB's process, body of work and the people who inspire him.
