MAKE YOUR MARK: THE NEW URBAN ARTISTS. Tristan Manco. Thames and Hudson Inc., New York, 2016. 256 pp. with 493 ills. (414 col.). 31 x 26 cm. LC 2015-941301 ISBN 9780500292181 In English.
Publisher's description: Ranging from figurative painting, illustration, and comic book drawing to tattoo art, poster design, and mural-making, the work is stylistically original, often incorporating experimental techniques or elements of the handmade. This is the intersection of traditional and street sensibilities, from Mexican-born artist Carlos Donjuan's paintings of masked figures to the atmospheric drawings of Bucharest-based artist Mark Francis Williams, whose work responds to the new shopping malls around his city that offer a hyper-real, super-beautiful sense of certainty but conceal an ominous underbelly. Other featured artists include the French illustrator and graffiti artist Bault, the American muralist Zio Ziegler, and the Japanese painter Fucu Ueda As in his previous books on street art and other nontraditional genres, author Tristan Manco's curatorial eye is a valuable guide at the frontier of a new genre. Students, artists, and anyone interested in art will be inspired by the integrity and grit of these unconventional creators on the rise.
