Video-rama: On Tender Hooks and Subway Art, 25th Anniversary
On Tender Hooks: The Art of Isabel Samaras
Continuing our love of all things Isabel Samaras, we’ve just posted a video of Isabel talking about her new work that will be on view at the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco this May. Isabel—one of the celebrated artist of today’s Pop Surrealist scene—has distinguished herself by applying meticulous technique and a sense of history to wry observations of contemporary popular culture.
Subway Art: 25th Anniversary edition
By Martha Cooper + Henry Chalfant
We’ve also posted this week a video interview with Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant, the renowned photographers behind the legendary book Subway Art.
Here’s what some people are saying:
This lavish new edition stunningly reasserts Subway Art ‘s place as the signal book on the authentic graffiti phenomenon, with pictures you can at last climb into and explore the way devotees of the earlier edition could only dream of.
– Jonathan Lethem
Not to sound dramatic or anything, but this book pretty much changed my entire life. It’s the reason why you know me as ‘eskay’ today. It’s the reason why I love art. It’s the reason why they have my name on the books down at 100 Centre Street.
