STREET ART, BOOK ART. Ingrid Beazley. Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, 2016. Published by Heni Publishing, London. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 156 pp. with 203 col. ills. 30 x 27 cm. ISBN 9780956873866 In English.
Due date: August 2016. Publisher's description: Street Art Book Art is a follow-up to Street Art Fine Art, which reproduced artworks created for a show at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in which classic works of fine art were reinterpreted by some of today's most cutting-edge street artists. The juxtaposition of styles and the subtle humor inherent in the project made it a favorite of gallery-goers and contemporary artists alike. Inspired by the success of the original show, Ingrid Beazley commissioned fifteen of the artists represented there -- including SStik, Conor Harrington, Thierry Noir, RUN, Christiaan Nagel, and Mad C -- to produce a series of unique cover designs directly on copies of Street Art Fine Art that had been produced with blank covers. The result is an absolutely fascinating mish-mash of forms and styles, commenting on and transforming the original work, which itself was full of commentaries and transformations of familiar art. Street Art Book Art, with its beautiful reproductions of the artists' wide-ranging cover designs, reminds us that art itself is endlessly inventive, whether it's in a museum, on the street, or even on your bookshelf.
