Popular Street Art from Around the World Makes Its Way to The Ultimate Street Art Coloring Book
Street art and urban art have become increasingly popular in the last couple of decades. Urban art emerges from the city life, inspired by the community, architecture, and lifestyle. It’s often displayed in public spaces such as parks, walls, bridges, often combining street art and graffiti. The lines in the urban art world have been blurring and artists whose works were only seeing on the walls of abandoned buildings, exhibit to thousands or millions of people in galleries and museums across the world now. Grafitti artists who only tagged the streets are crossing over to the fine arts. Conversely, traditional artists are also crossing over and painting on walls from Tokyo to New York, letting their creativity be seeing outside museums, galleries or private collections.
Street art, which can be found in virtually any metropolis of the world, alongside galleries and contemporary museums, is now available in a portable medium now: in the form of a gorgeous adult coloring book. More than one hundred of the best street artists in the world, who have exhibited in museums or painted in the streets, came together in a coloring book worthy of a museum collection. It features murals from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, from Canada to Jordan, Mexico, and Australia, to Miami, and Manhattan.
Some of the murals turned into coloring pages include the artwork of legendary street artists Kenny Scharf, D*Face, Vhils, Ron English, Cryptik, Elle, Saner, Crash, The London Police, Case, Fin DAC, Meres, Daleast, Icy And Sot, Sego, Kashink, Vexta, Beau Stanton, Daze and a many others. The book includes the work of bona fide street artists who have been in the scene for decades such as Lady Pink, one of the pioneer females in the graffiti subculture of the 1980s to Kenny Scharf who was a part of the 1980s East Village Art movement along with Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring.
The works of such street artists, the likes of Vhils, D*Face, and eL Seed have exhibited in museums from Lisbon to Beijing, from Germany’s MUCA to Spain’s CAC of Malaga to The Qatar Museum. Urban art is present in contemporary art institutions from California to New York in the form of installations, paintings, and even specially commissioned collections.
