Subway Art

(No reviews yet)

Out of stock

In 1984 the groundbreaking Subway Art brought graffiti to the  world, presenting stunning photographic documentation of the burgeoning  movement in New York. Thirty years later, this bible of street art has  been updated with over seventy photographs not included in the original  edition and new insights on an incredibly rich period for urban art and  its legacy.

In new introductions, authors Martha Cooper and  Henry Chalfant recall how they gained entry into the New York City  graffiti community in the 1970s and 1980s. New afterwords continue the  story, tracing the decline of the subway and graffiti scene in the late  1980s to its unexpected rebirth as a global art movement. The authors  reveal how the lives of the original subway artists have unfolded and  mourn the loss of several to the darker forces of the street. 153 color  illustrations
