With street art finding firm ground on gallery walls these days, new models of skipping into the contemporary art market are emerging. Walls & Frames: Fine Art From The Streets documents the next wave of artist's to go from painting murals to mounting retrospective exhibitions. These are the folks born (in art world terms) from the likes of Os Gemeos and Shepard Fairey. Josh Keys, a rapidly rising gallery star through his imaginative hyper realism, joins artists like Jeff Soto and Dan Witz in the heavy mix presented.
Edited by Maximilliano Ruiz, the book offers interviews with both artists and insiders. In short, it is a snap shot in time, a sort of year book dedicated to the next in line. Fascinating, forceful, quick — much like the artists themselves.
