This review is from: Happy Graffiti: Street Art with Heart (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I own a half dozen or so books collecting graffiti and street art images and I have to say this is one of the least impressive of them. First of all, it is a pretty slim volume, clearly designed for the bathroom reader rather than serious enthusiasts. But more to the point, the art it collects is for the most part fairly unimpressive. That's not to say there is nothing of interest here, but there are many books out there that provide far superior collections. The title suggests an emphasis on "positive" graffiti, suggesting that most other books of this kind do not. That is not my experience at all; the majority of the street art that finds publication is "happy" graffiti, and is usually a bit bolder and more colourful that what is collected here. A decent book to flip through but if you have any interest in this subject, you probably already own several books of far greater quality.
