UNCOMMISSIONED ART by Christine Dew

“This ambitious survey of contemporary Australian graffiti documents, through an abundance of excellent photographs and sharp informative text, the vibrancy of this illegal street culture. Like all good books about art, Uncommissioned Art helps us better understand what is right in front of our eyes.”  —The Age

Combining beautiful color images from Australia’s thriving graffiti and street-art culture with analysis of the history and evolution of the scene, this guide discusses the complex issues raised by the presence of graffiti in public spaces. Increasingly gaining currency as a potent and respected art form worldwide, the immediacy and ephemeral nature of street art comments on political and social change and the shape of the urban landscape itself, and this collection contributes to the local, national, and international conversations about art and design, popular culture, and urban planning.
