The Art of Spray Paint showcases the grand and imaginative scale of spray paint art and design. Inside, you'll find jaw-dropping spray paint creations from around the world! You'll discover the process of each art form, as well as tricks of the trade, from small clever projects to huge art installations.
Much more than a book about "cool" spray paint designs, Lori Zimmer guides you through amazing large-scale art production, immersive environments, working from intuition, collaboration, the artist's role in society, alternative creative economies, contemporary mythology, storytelling, DIY projects and more.
For the cover stories, we sit down with Marcel Dzama to discuss Pettibon as a collaborator, working with the likes of Spike Jonze, Arcade Fire, and Dave Eggers, as well as the role of the artist in politics.
In conjunction with Raymond Pettibon's retrospective coming to the New Museum in NYC in February we enlisted critic and friend Carlo McCormick to comment on Pettibon's overall importance as both prolific and influential to a generation of artists.
