Some of you might remember the launch of the book Street Art Fine Art, which we attended together many months ago. The author, Ingrid Beazley, has now invited the group to another launch for a special side project, details below:
"I had a number of covers of my book Street Art Fine Art printed blank and asked the artists in the book to paint 5 covers each. Almost all of them did and I have this stunning set of exquisitely hand painted books that Pace London is putting on show. They will be suspended from the ceiling in specially designed acrylic holders.
I have made an accompanying book, Street Art Book Art, which is basically photographs of all the 70 different covers and some introductory text. Street Art Book Art is being printed with 15 different covers, a separate one for each participating artist. There will be a limited edition of 100 books of each artists’ cover. £10.
My last year’s book will be on sale, and also an updated, paperback version that includes 6 more artists who have added to the project since. (It costs a more reasonable £20.)
The painted books are not for sale."
We are going to the launch party of Street Art Book Art on Friday 26 June from 6-8pm. The show will run from Saturday 27 June – Sunday 5 July, 10am-6pm.
