Summary "Melbourne is a city of nearly four million people, lively and culturally diverse. Its riches includes an amazing sub-culture of street art, of such vigour that it ranks in variety and power with the graffiti capitals of London and New York. Although street art is essentially a subterranean activity, the topography of Melbourne, with its radiating railways running through walled canyons and a tight-knit inner city of walls and laneways, gives even the most conservative citizen a chance to observe the outpourings of the street art armies of the night. The result is lively and public debate, not only on the merits of the activity, but on the skills of the practitioners. As in other cities, street art is bordering on artistic legitimacy, and is part of a cross-over with fashion, design, graphics and advertising. The artistic parade presented in Matthew Lunn's Street Art Uncut explores all genres of the trade including throwups, stencils, murals, stickers, posters, plaques and sculptures. Matthew Lunn's knowledge of the artists themselves and their stories, and his understanding of the methodologies and the psychology of street art, make this both an absorbing and visually stunning book." -- BOOK JACKET
