Off the street and into the gallery. This exciting book looks at
work from the past five years by some 35 contemporary artists from
around Australia. Playful, edgy, clever, satirical and political,
street art has significantly altered Australian visual culture over
the past decade and has announced the arrival of a new generation
of contemporary artists.
"Space Invaders" engages with these developments and the
radically differing aesthetic offshoots of street art, from
stencils to paste-ups, stickers, and zines. It also explores the
legal and commercial issues particular to street art in Australia,
and reveals the strategies artists have used to divide their
practice between the street and the gallery.

National Gallery of Australia

book is essential for anyone interested in street art and new
