Researchin' - 'STREET/STUDIO'
Found this book down at local library. Yes sometimes sandwiched between the multiple Picasso and Monet books, you can come across a gem. Street/Studio - The Place of Street Art in Melbourne (by Alison Young, Ghostpatrol, Miso and Timba) captures the tasty crop of new talent emerging from the lane ways of Melbourne. I was already familiar with the beautiful work of Ghostpatrol and Miso, but another artist in the book that made me swoon was Tai Snaith. Her illustration, collage and street based work draw on the absurd and sweet. One of my favourite combos...check her work!
