Description

The first collected volume of work from feted street artist Stik, fully illustrated and beautifully presented

"Social change is what art does. I don't know what else there is, to be honest. Social change seems to me the primary function of art. I feel that's my duty. That's why I'm here. That's what art is supposed to do." --Stik

Stik first came to notoriety as an underground street artist who painted life-size stick figures during the night around London's East End. As a firm believer in the right to protest, the freedom of speech, and basic human rights, Stik has now painted murals in cities, towns, and villages all over the world, focusing his work in communities that face repression and disenfranchisement.

Having gained an international following, Stik credits his audience with the intelligence to fill in the emotional details of his work, which always consists of just six lines and two dots. Each piece is a meditation.

This is the first collected volume of his work to date. It reveals the political and artistic inspiration behind an emerging voice whose work stands alongside Banksy and Keith Haring among true activists in the street art community.

The first edition includes an exclusive limited edition lithographic print inside the book in either blue or orange.
