Softcover, 192 pages, 16 x 22 cm

The past few years has seen an explosion in the quality of street art – and a significant and growing proportion of those works are by women. Interestingly however, women are only a tiny minority of the artists represented in most street art books. This stunning volume seeks to redress the balance, featuring the works of over 50 artists, with detailed biographies of each by street art specialist Xavier Tapies, in a chunky, high-quality paperback format, packed with amazing imagery and great analysis.
The artists come from all over the world – the likes of Bambi, Lady Aiko, BTOY, Neozoon, Miss Van, Caratoes, Nadege Dauvergne, Jules Muck, Din Din, Vexta and Binty Bint. What is striking is how many have global careers – Vexta in NYC, Miss Van in Barcelona, Lily Mixe in London, Lady Aiko in South Africa, Handiedan in New York, Elle in London and Rejkyavik, to name a few instances.
Women Street Artists is essential for anyone into street art or the contemporary art scene, and brilliant inspiration for all new artists and street artists out there.
