ABSTRACT / URBAN


In essence, urban art was born of experimentation and abstraction. The wildstyle, the scratch, the collage of sampled sounds, b-boys battling against gravity...

Slanted, on its head - challenging perceptions across the cultural spectrum.

In this new book we examine the birth, fusion, and evolution of urban arts through a series of landmark works. Discussing defining moments and key contributors with the those who drove and bore witness.

This isn’t a hip-hop who’s who or an A-Z of style writers. This is about the challengers, the left-turns, the pioneers, the forgotten, the fearless, the upsetters... the game changers.

We Join the dots, crossing the tracks, focusing on the works that redefined the art form.
