The Ultimate Street Art Coloring Book – A Book with a Mission
More than 150 of the best street artists in the world collaborated to create a series of premium coloring books for a social cause. Diego Orlandini, a writer and illustrator from Miami, Florida orchestrated a one-year long project along with some of the best names in the street art community to create The Ultimate Street Art Coloring Book.
Legendary street artists Kenny Scharf, D*Face, Vhils, Ron English, Cryptik, Elle, Saner, Crash, The London Police, Case, Fin DAC, Meres, Daleast, Icy & Sot, Sego, Kashink, Vexta, Beau Stanton, Lady Pink, and Daze are among the selection of world-class muralists featured in the book.
A total of 153 artists participated in the street art coloring book series that might be the largest collaboration of street artists in the world.
New York-based street artist John “Crash” Matos said about Aimful Books: “it takes a village, and in this case a global village to raise children. Every book that is sold helps building micro-libraries where they are needed the most.”
Fallen Rose, painter and street artist based in Miami, shared his recent experience with Aimful Books: “This is the real deal! I’ve personally been to schools in Cambodia they donate books to.”
The coloring pages are replicas of murals from all over the world; from famous neighborhoods such as Brooklyn and Wynwood, to big cities like Los Angeles, and Paris, and hidden gems from Australia to Jordan.

Creating this book took thousands of hours. Artists of the caliber of D*Face, British iconic street artist and friend of Banksy, joined the project along with the impressive list of artists excited to share their gift with the world while participating in tangible social good. Portuguese muralist, Vhils whose groundbreaking carving technique is recognized as one of the most compelling approaches to street art created in the last decade, also participated in the book.
