The subcultural movement of Street Art is a phenomenon that reaches from the darkest urban backstreets to the most glamorous international art fairs.

Simon Armstrong examines how it evolved from its origins in the 1970s New York graffiti scene to embrace and influence contemporary culture. Examining Street Art's controversial history in detail, this book provides a full-colour worldwide journey, taking in all of the movement's significant artists and artworks, styles, materials and methods, and showcasing the works that have come to define it more than any other. It also examines its close relationship to Pop Art and Digital Art, and explores possible futures for Street Art.
