Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Such innovators are showcased as Antony Micalleff (featured in The New York Times and Dazed and Confused and collected by Angelina Jolie), Brooklyn-based international artist collective Faile, Parisian artist JR (known only by his initials because of the illegal nature of his work), and Conor Harrington. Debuting completely new material, Tank Girl and Gorillaz cocreator Jamie Hewlett is also one of the 20 prominent artists featured. An essay by Damien Hirst, one of the most controversial and influential artists of the 21st century, is included.

Review:

"A slippery and near-ubiquitous term in post-postmodern art, gallery owner Lazarides (who also manages street-art megastar Banksy) uses the 'outsider' label here to describe artists working outside of traditional artistic spaces-Mark Jenkins' amazingly realistic streetside human casts made of packing tape, Invader's colorful reproductions of classic video game characters in tile-but his only qualification for inclusion is 'work I admire' (though one might perceive a supporting consideration, 'work available for purchase on my gallery Web site'). To wit: Antony Micallef's exquisite, 'deeply troubling' portraits of post-consumer babylonia, Polly Morgan's elevated taxidermy, and the 'mischevous and macabre,' 'very British' Sanley Donwood (best known for his work with rock group Radiohead). Lazarides pens brief, warm biographies of most contributors, interspersing them randomly in page after page of stunning images. The text concludes with an informative (if abbreviated) index and a list for further reading. 15 b/w, 255 color images." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
