Now that I’m almost in my senior year of college, my love for graffiti and street art has grown even more. And what amazes me is how much information and material has been made available to artists and graff fans. From books such as Art In The Streets, The Obvious Illusion: Murals From the Lower East Side and Graffiti Kings, to movies and documentaries like Exit Through the Gift Shop and Style Wars, the fascinating lives of street artists and their works can be discovered and studied in more ways than ever before. Check out these selections and many more on street art and graffiti at the LIM College Library, and explore your own personal appreciation for this classic New York art style!
