Following the success of Land of Sunshine published in 2012 comes the next book titled Street Art Now. An updated snapshot of the Melbourne street art and graffiti scene over the last two years is once again all shot by Dean Sunshine on his travels across Melbourne and beyond…
Street Art Now is a larger, hardback book with 200 pages showcasing over 100 local and international artists who have painted in Australia. Plus there are also images from some of Dean’s travels overseas featuring both Australian and international artists.
“This new book provides us with an important visual diary of the changing face of Melbourne’s public spaces,” says David Hurlston, Australian Art Curator at the National Gallery of Victoria
The Land of Sunshine Blog is regularly updated with hundreds of photos from both here and overseas documenting the never ending art appearing on the streets.
Street Art Now is available nationally at the National Gallery of Victoria, National Gallery of Australia (Canberra); Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney); Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art; Heide Museum of Modern Art, Museum of Old and New Art (Hobart); General Pants outlets, and selected bookshops.
All sales from Street Art Now assist future editions and furthering Dean’s wish to provide ongoing documentation of Melbourne street art online and via printed media.
