Vol. 296: The Street Art Special last edited by pikahyper on 01/07/20 12:00AM View full history

    Some say that today's most innovative artists are not hunched over a desk pouring their souls out onto dead-tree or a Wacom -- but spray-painting and wheatpasting them onto walls. Don't tell them where art doesn't belong, because that's exactly where they'll take it. In this issue we speak with leading artists Shepard Fairey and Hebru Brantley, and present a thrilling tale from Tristan Eaton (all three are cover artists as well). With unconventional storytelling from other creators, plus the latest by Richard Corben and Grant Morrison, this is one you don't want to miss!
