This coffee table book explores the artwork of ABOVE, the prolific anonymous street artist who has thrown up art in over 90 cities in 60 different countries. ABOVE got his start tagging trains in California in 1995 and has been creating public art ever since. Designed as a giant passport album / scrapbook / manifesto by Blaine Fontana, this title is both a beautiful street art volume and a virtual journey around the world, and is packed with hundreds of full-color plates accompanied by insight by those who know ABOVE or are awed by him. ABOVE is known for his large scale playful typographic murals, multi-layer stencils, and wooden arrows painted with words pointing upward in the urban landscape. These pieces subtly alter everyday paths, jolting people out of their routines and causing them instead to look up and focus on what may have otherwise been overlooked. PASSPORT is a gorgeous testament to street art's ability to function as a challenge, ideal, and positive impact in society.
