Street Art Contexte(s) by Olivier Landes is a nice overview of the recent history of muralism and street art, through a selection of 120 artistic interventions in urban spaces. The book shows how these artworks take their full dimension when they echo a physical context - architecture, urban or rural landscape -, historical or societal, with which the artist deliberately decides to play. Far from the interchangeable productions affixed on all the walls of the world, this work pays tribute to street art as a contextual art in its own right.
