An invitation to you from Monica LoCasio of Anonymous Gallery
I would love if could join me at the launch party for “STICKERS: From
Punk Rock to Contemporary Art,” this Thursday, October 7, 9pm, at LOVE
(40 W 8th St., NY 10012).
For three years, my partner DB Burkeman and I have worked to gather as
many stickers as possible into this volume, and at 300 pages, the book
includes the work of over 1,400 artists… It’s finally time to
celebrate them all!
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stickers aka “Stuck Up Piece of Crap” by DB Burkeman and Monica Locascio features approximately 4,000 stickers from the exploding, vibrant world of street art, DIY culture, music, and branding. Stickers illustrates the timeline of this pastime, from counterculture to politics. Stickers includes approximately 4,000 sticker graphics organized by categories and themes, with works by such diverse artists as Raymond Pettibon and Jenny Holzer; street artists such as Banksy, Neck Face, and Barry McGee; and amateur artists who “tag” the streets anonymously. With texts from artists and writers, including Swoon, Stanley Donwood, ESPO, Clayton Patterson, Carlo McCormick, and Michael Betancourt, Stickers illustrates not only the visual and social history of sticker art but also the personal relationship that street artists and pedestrians alike have with stickers. Packaged in an oversized clamshell box, the deluxe edition features 23 large, original die-cut stickers, 8 artists actually signed their respective sticker. See More
