Description

Artistry with spray paint goes much deeper than what some would write off as vandalism. Modern spray paint artists use the medium in a myriad of inventive ways, see them in The Art of Spray Paint.

With roots in graffiti and utilitarian projects, spray paint has come to the forefront of the art world, seen both on the streets and in museums across the globe.

The Art of Spray Paint investigates the diverse artists who are thriving with the medium, from the evolution of graffiti by John “CRASH” Matos, to the photo-realistic stencils of Logan Hicks, or the precise lines and can control of Tristan Eaton. Zimmer provides a window into the world of 20 leading artists working with spray paint in diverse ways including graffiti, urban art, stencil, portraiture, crisp graphic work and mixed media.

You’ll also discover DIY projects and tricks of the trade, as well as a focus on the artist’s role in society, the rise of mural festivals and its effects, and each artists’ background and attraction to spray paint as a medium.

Contributors include: CRASH, PichiAvo, BR163, Logan Hicks, Joe Iurato, Nick Walker, Caroline Caldwell, Casey Gray, Tristan Eaton, Matt Eaton, Hueman, Elle, Tatiana Suarez, Conor Harrington, Remi Rough, Will Hutnick, Rubin415, Rebecca Paul, Zac Braun, Ian Kuali’i, Ele Pack,  and Dana Oldfather
