Influenced by graffiti, graphic design, typography, comic books, and digital art, street art is gaining a foothold in galleries and with serious collectors. This work investigates the tools and materials, roots and influences, where and how to show work, case studies of people 'doing it', and a list of contacts and resources.
Ric Blackshaw was part of the team (along with Liz Farrelly) that put together the highly successful and influential Scrawl titles. Since then, he has set up and run the Scrawl Collective, a hybrid illustration and design agency, curatorial service, and online gallery. Liz Farrelly is a writer, editor, and curator, specialising in the fields of graphic design, 3D design, and visual culture. As well as regular magazine work, she has contributed to over 40 design-related books.
