Fans of the hit graffiti title Street Sketchbook will delight in this new volume dedicated to the journeysboth geographical and imaginativeof street artists. Twenty-six of the hottest new artists working worldwide today have opened up their sketchbooks to share their impressions as they travel on road trips, trek halfway across the globe, and explore internal landscapes. From widely diverse backgrounds, these cutting-edge artists share one crucial decision: to bypass conventional routes for the creative road less taken, the urban streets and alleyways. From doodles on a bus in Central America to fully realized murals spanning the Israel-Palestine border, Street Sketchbook: Journeys is an engrossing travelogue of visual free expression.

Book News Annotation:

Manco, the author of Street Sketchbook, traces the personal and imaginative journeys of 30 street artists from countries around the world, including China, the US, Japan, Russia, and especially Mexico. Most of the artists profiled in this 9x12" color art book work on the street with graffiti art and murals, but they also use printmaking, filmmaking, animation, and even performance art. The book is illustrated with color photos of street art, murals, gallery installations, and sketchbook drawings on every page, revealing the artists' obsessions, passions, and working methods. The profiles delve into the sources of their ideas and explore key turning points in the artists' lives that have shaped their artistic expression. Many of the artists profiled are concerned with social and political issues, some draw on history and folklore as a means of exploring their own identity, while others take inspiration from nature. Manco is a graphic designer. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
