From the publishers behind Banksy's mega-selling Wall and Piece, comes the fully-illustrated, beautifully presented book by feted London street artist, STIK. Stik first came to notoriety as an underground street artist who painted life-size stick figures during the night around London's East End. As a firm believer in the right to protest, the freedom of speech, and basic human rights, Stik has now painted murals in cities, towns and villages all over the world, focusing his work in communities which have not been afraid to express themselves in the face of repression and disenfranchisement. Having gained an international following, Stik credits his audience with the intelligence to fill in the details with just six lines and two dots to imply emotion. Each piece is a meditation. This is the first collected volume of his work to date. It reveals the political and artistic inspiration behind the work of one of this country's most brilliant and inspiring artists.
