#ROUGH SKETCHES: VOLUME 01 -- A COLLECTION OF BLACKBOOK SKETCHES FROM 1996 TO 2015 BY REMI ROUGH. {Title from cover.} Remi Rough and Stormie Mills. Unicorn, Unicorn Publishing Group, London, 2016.

Publisher's description: A crucial player in the rise of the street art movement, Remi Rough has been enmeshed in the international art scene for more than twenty-five years. Part of the arts collective, Agents of Change, Rough re-imagines public spaces: from an abandoned ghost village in Scotland to the exterior of the Megaro Hotel in the center of London. He began with humble walls and trains in south London during the 1980's, but Rough's distinct abstract graffiti style is now on display in cities across the globe, including Miami, Berlin, and New York, just to name a few. #Roughsketches collects two decades of the artist's drawings and sketches from his diverse catalog of work. It displays the gradual progression in Rough's style, from simple graffiti lettering to the complex abstractions that he developed as he focused increasingly on the interplay between geometry, line, and space. A fascinating window into the development of abstract graffiti art, #Roughsketches also offers new glimpses into the art, mind, and sketchbooks of Remi Rough.
