Street CraftParis and Hong Kong Other artists create sophisticated urban interventions bearing their personal tags such as the artist SpiderTag who intertwines sturdy rope and nails to construct abstract graffiti in Madrid and GorillaLighting who haunts Berlin’s industrial estates with impermanent projectionsEach artist’s profile includes project descriptions artist statements and a selection of photographs of their work a document of the vibrant panorama of Street Craft which like the art form itself engages with its audience in new and exciting ways. What a neat bookIt profiles many street artists and like with any art some of the work really appealed to me while others I didn't care for I really liked the butterflies by Tasha Lewis and the Mini Cross Stitch in Germany The little people has always been a favorite as well Maybe these appeal to me over paintings or other installations because they're not doing any damage to the area they are installed in like a painting would do The yarnbombing was fun to see also There are really some creative people in the world
