Space Invaders: Australian Street Stencils Posters Paste Ups Zines Stickers
Off the street and into the gallery. This exciting book looks at work from the past five years by some 35 contemporary artists from around Australia. Playful, edgy, clever, satirical and political, street art has significantly altered Australian visual culture over the past decade and has announced the arrival of a new generation of contemporary artists.
Space Invaders engages with these developments and the radically differing aesthetic offshoots of street art, from stencils to paste-ups, stickers, and zines. It also explores the legal and commercial issues particular to street art in Australia, and reveals the strategies artists have used to divide their practice between the street and the gallery. It includes insightful essays by people engaged with the scene, interviews with artists practising on the streets today, and a multitude of fabulous images.Edited by Jaklyn Babington, with essays by Andy Mac, Din Heagney and Alison Young
