Berlin is an international epicenter for the arts and has become a destination spot for street art creators and admirers alike. Urban Illustration features the most stunning and innovative street art from Berlin, where unknown local heroes and famous international street artists share a common canvas.
In the course of documenting over 500 of the best examples of art work in the streets of this dynamic German capital, the book transcends it's core function as a city guide and becomes a magic carpet for armchair travelers and street art officionados alike.
With a focus on popular techniques such as stencils, cutouts, markers and wheatpaste, the author Benjamin Wolbergs documents the diverse styles of artists including D*Face from London, Faile and Swoon from New York and Fuck Your Crew from Berlin, just to name a few.
In addition to the images, 17 in-depth interviews give detailed information about the artists backgrounds and methods. A separate City map leads the way to the locations in the heart of Berlin where author Benjamin Wolbergs took his fascinating photographs, and where new street art is waiting to be discovered daily.
