New Book: Street Art London: 100 UK Graffiti Artists

Steam's book! He's a Foto King, so it's got to be good. Get them while they last.


A compilation of the latest and best street art that has graced London's bare walls, complete with quotes and commentary from the artists themselves.

The streets of London are not actually paved with gold but, their walls are decorated with the liveliest, freshest, coolest street art in the world (and not just from the elusive Banksy). London's bare, sometimes decrepit walls have become public galleries on which the British and international street artists have maintained an un-authorised exhibition for over ten years.

STREET ART LONDON is focused on the latest and best of London's many street artists. The ephemeral pieces that infuse the street scene with new meaning are preserved in this book, which not only allows these works to be enjoyed long after the council paints over them, but also places the pieces within a broader context.

Welcome to a selection of some of the best street art that London has seen, as photographed by one of the most long standing and influential appreciators and documenters of the form – Steam
