In this book, curator Ingrid Beazley draws parallels between classic and contemporary styles, showcasing how works from the Dulwich Picture Gallery s permanent collection by painters such as Rembrandt, Gainsborough, Rubens, Van Dyck and Murillo have influenced works by street artists working in the local area such as Stik, Conor Harrington, Thierry Noir, Phlegm and RUN. Featuring pieces by 21 internationally renowned street artists, the book is illustrated with specially commissioned colour photography throughout.
Street Art Fine Art presents a collection of classic works of fine art by the old masters reinterpreted by today's most cutting-edge street artists.
