An encyclopedia of street culture for those who love Banksy or Irvine Welsh and want to know about the cutting-edge talents, past and present who have shaped urban cool.

This eye-catching insider1s guide includes old school graffiti legends, avant-garde street artists, film makers, DJs, designers, writers, and poets who have influenced urban culture. From the groundbreaking New York artists of the 1980s to the unique work of modern-day Iranians, this book shows how street culture has penetrated every aspect of modern life.

Street Knowledge includes work and exclusive interviews from some of the world1s most famous artists and talents, such as Banksy, David LaChapelle, Kelsey Brookes, Quik, Tony Kaye, Tama Janowitz, The KLF, Shawn Stussy, Obey, Irvine Welsh, Martha Cooper, and Benjamin Zephaniah, as well as lesser-known and up-coming talents who are literally coming up from the streets.

About the Author:

King Adz left his former life as a filmmaker and advertising exec to pick up a pen and do what he loves best. In his current incarnation as writer, cook, and street culture aficionado, he roams the globe to touch, taste, and experience what's happening on the ground and document his findings.

Review:

Praise for King Adz's Previous Works:
Really great stuff. Quirky, idiosyncratic, but mostly it gave a great feel for the complexities of hip, webdriven urban culture. Eric Hansen, author of "Motorcycling with Mohammed"
Adz s volume succeeds as a visual travelogue of street art and cutting edge design. --"Publisher s Weekly"
?What makes the book most compelling is that, by virtue of placing the featured street art in the context of the cities where it appears, it doubles as an underground guide to the hottest art, culture, music, fashion, dining and film spots in some of the world's hippest cities.?--Brain Pickings Blog
?This book is a perfect coffee-table compendium of all that's cool out there in the global urban jungle, from Banksy to "Yo! MTV Raps," and then some. Illustrated lovingly throughout, this is a must-have for fans of street art and culture & its origins and a great guide to what has become one of the most important art forms to emerge from in recent years.?--Digital Slander Blog
?In "Street Knowledge, " [Adz] presents an A-to-Z guide to the form, capturing starts like Banksy and Obey in exclusive interviews, early pioneers, and related art forms, for hip-hop to fashion.? --"Zocalo Public Square"
?An encyclopedia of street culture for those who love Banksy or Irvine
