This vivid art book spotlights 50 artists of the Newbrow art, pop surrealism movement with over 180 striking color photos of their work. Artists from across the US, Denmark, Germany, and Australia are featured. The images themselves are filled with powerful social commentary, startling imagery, and sharp humor. The work ranges from that of street artists who trace back to the 1980s hip hop culture, using tools such as stenciling, wheat pasting, spray paint, and guerilla art installations, to illustrative artists who trace their backgrounds to graphic design and illustration. For those unfamiliar with Newbrow art, the author describes it as, a raw unapologetic form of expression that represents todays current culture. The artists presented are arranged alphabetically in the book, with text providing information about each artists life, inspiration, influences, and style. Contact information for each artist is also provided.
