A celebration of the world's best typographic street art.
Although we are bombarded by words every day, it's somehow more appealing when they are placed on the street by artists rather than advertisers. Urban Scrawl documents some of the world's most interesting text-based street art, from formal typography to angsty scrawl. Photographer and street-art lover Lou Chamberlin has been collecting images of urban scrawl, large and small, for more than 15 years. Whether thought-provoking, political, humorous or shocking, these examples of text in the city - spanning 54 cities across 22 countries, will make you reflect, chuckle or sometimes even laugh out loud.
Lou Chamberlin is an artist, author and arts educator. For more than 10 years Lou has been photographing and chronicling international street art. Urban Scrawl is the fifth book she has published on this topic, following Burn City, Street Art: International, Street Art: Australia and Street Art: Melbourne. By visually preserving various forms of creative expression in photos, Lou contributes to a greater appreciation of the role street art plays in the cultural life of cities around the world. She has been teaching and writing about art for more than 20 years.
