TRESPASS A HISTORY OF UNCOMMISSIONED URBAN ART PDF

Is Street Art mere vandalism or cutting edge urban art? Trespass: A History of Uncommissioned Urban Art presents a survey of works by artists who work on the fringes of the recognised art world. Trespass: A History of Uncommissioned Urban Art covers a wide array of engagements, tapping in to what is a highly expansive phenomenon that is not limited by theme or concept, technique, location or age. The strength of Trespass is in the images of the works, which are essentially allowed to speak for themselves, as they would if you were presented by them in an urban setting. While each theme is contextualised by a brief essay at the beginning of each chapter, establishing the history and speculating on the contents of the chapter, each image is allowed to stand on its own. There is a distinctive edginess to these art forms.
