New Book: Billboard Bandits

Billboard Bandits: Outlaw Artists in the Sky

A 208-page hardcover packed with photos and interviews, Billboard Bandits dives deep within graffiti and street art subcultures and their fascination with conquering the billboard.

The book's interviews include 18 top graffiti and street artists from the USA and UK, including Augor.MSK, the Billboard Liberation Front (BLF) and Ron English. They specialize in everything from integrating their pieces into the advertisement itself to adding their artwork to the blank billboard back. A few are "billboard liberators," manipulating the ads to convey their message (subvertising).
