I am an avid follower of Wooster Collective Gallery. Today they posted a review on an amazing (soon to be released) art history book titled: TRESPASS: A History of Uncommissioned Urban Art. It was a great preview read, but what prompted me to write about this book are the artists whose essays authored this book.

For all guerrilla artists, urban painters, and appreciators of this is a really cool book. Yes, it is a good looking coffee table book, but don't stop there. The book includes wonderful essays by the artists and the introduction is penned by the very talented urban guerrilla artist, Banksy. The rich history of these artists, and the evolution of their works is inspiring. The artwork in the book can be criticized but as you read the book you see the progress made through urban art.

The book is uniquely comprised by a series of themes, by 150 artists. Every photograph in the book is work that is unauthorized and uncommissioned. The best news is that the retail sale of the book will cost around $39.99. I posted one image of a spectacular piece just to tempt you. You can do a special visual leaf-through of the book here.
