Combining beautiful color images from Australia's thriving graffiti and street art culture with analysis of the history and evolution of the scene, this illustrated guide discusses the complex issues raised by graffiti's presence in public spaces. Increasingly gaining currency as a potent and respected art form worldwide, the immediacy and ephemeral nature of street art comments on political and social change and the shape of the urban landscape itself, and this collection contributes to the local, national, and international conversations about art and design, popular culture, and urban planning.
