From its origins in pre-history to the Victorians, Edwardians and the present day, this new book will cover it all. Author Philip Battle decided to crowd fund this publication through Sponsume (See more at: http://www.sponsume.com/project/all-my-own-work-history-pavement-art#sthash.ihZDxgKT.dpuf). His goal is to raise £8,000 by October 6, 2014.
It includes the personal stories of individual artists, plucked from historical obscurity and told here for the very first time; like Alice G Colman (1874-1934), Britain’s first lady pavement artist. Liverpool’s own child pavement artist James William Carling (1857-1887) with the personal stories of many others, and the social context in which they lived. It brings the history right up to date with a description of modern day pavement art; festivals, events and the popularization of the art-form across the globe, with examples of 3D anamorphic art, and other modern trends. It also includes lots of rare photos of the artists, that have been painstakingly collected by Philip over the years.
This is your chance to be a part of street painting history and help a fellow skreever and street painter to publish this important document. Every street artist should own a copy!
We wish Philip, an ISPS Board Member, all the luck and hope you will support this important work.
