This book is a unique view inside the life and work of one of the most private, but also one of the most loved, most applauded and most influential figures in street art. From small and simple stencils to complex multimedia events, the distinctive and groundbreaking art of Blek le Rat is showcased here for the first time, demonstrating the fascinating development of his technique and creativity over two decades. This book, with its indepth personal exploration of Blek's motives and working methods, and his own comments on the meaning of his art, also offers a taste of the evolution of urban art from NewYork, Paris, Barcelona and Buenos Aires, to London, Taipei, Naples and Berlin. It will inspire and inform enthusiasts of street and urban culture and students alike.
