Cale Waddacor

Thames & Hudson

This visually rich survey, the first of its kind, showcases recent work by over 200 artists and details the continent’s major street art projects, collectives and festivals. Taking readers on an introductory tour of the cultural influences and idiosyncrasies of individual street art scenes from Kenya, Morocco, Senegal and South Africa to Tunisia, Angola and Egypt, the fully illustrated book elaborates on styles, processes and contemporary visual cultures and puts the explosion of street art in Africa into a social and cultural context.
