Street Art [electronic resource] / by Films Media Group, film distributor.; Video Education Australasia, production company.;
To some, street art and graffiti is nothing but vandalism. But to these young artists, it is a vital form of self expression. In this eye-opening program we speak to eight members of Melbourne's thriving street art scene. Through their stories we look at Melbourne's street art and the contribution of street art and graffiti to art and society around the world. We explore the history of street art, the influences on our featured artists, and the materials and techniques they use. We also define street art and graffiti, and discuss the contentious issue of street art in art galleries.10 & up.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description (Films Media Group, September 3, 2015).

Wildly creative and often subversive, street art shows that just because a work isn't in a gallery doesn't mean it's not art. From Sao Paolo to Sydney, New York to Tokyo, these artists exhibit their work in the world's most accessible museum - the street - sharing their vision with a public unable to avoid their work, like it or not. At its best, street art is not simply about slogans or personal promotion but is playful, creative and often beautiful, drawing on the energy of its surroundings. The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti focuses on the most prolific and interesting artists from around the globe - including 12 Australians.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

Bricksy : Unauthorized Underground Brick Street Art. by Friesen, Jeff.(DLC)2086822;
Intro -- Title Page -- Copyright -- Dedication -- Table of Contents -- Introduction -- Photographs -- FAQ -- Legend -- Acknowledgments.From Jeff Friesen, award-winning photographer and author of United States of LEGO#65533;, comes a hilarious new book of diorama photographs that uses LEGO bricks to spoof the famous work of the mysterious anonymous graffiti artist known as Banksy. Friesen gives new meaning to gritty street art using clean, modernist bricks. Bricksy goes beyond transforming the medium by expanding the scenes it plays on and adding a humorous twist to each one. Each of the eighty-four photographs is wittily captioned, delightful to look at, and appropriate for a wide range of ages. At the end of the book is a legend featuring thumbnail reproductions of each original Banksy so readers can test their knowledge of Banksy's catalogue with Friesen's LEGO spinoffs. While traditional street art is often rushed along by the threat of local law enforcement, Friesen has bountiful time to reimagine Banksy's work into glossy LEGO glory that comes off the walls and springs to life. Banksy's iconic characters gain intriguing new stories. Readers will discover where Banksy's monkeys are taking charge and who the bouquet thrower's star-crossed lover is. You've never seen Banksy like this before. You've never seen LEGO like this before. Bricksy is a must-have book for fans of Banksy, fans of LEGO, and anyone with a sense of humor.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.
