With the latest book series about street artists the author C100 and the Publikat publishing house are connecting to the success of “The Art of Rebellion” which was presenting an overview about street art as a form of coeval art for the first time seven years ago. The series “Part of Rebellion” is now going deeply into details. Every release is exclusively devoted to one major international street artist and his work.
In the end of 2008 the kick off artist was FLYING FÖRTRESS from Munich – now we have the privilege to present DAVE THE CHIMP from London in the second volume. Barely one publication of the last two years hit the market without including one of his works. In this book his varied and always very humorous creations will be shown in full scope. Lots of street artists still define themselves by stickers on lanterns and mailboxes of capital cities. Dave instead constantly comes up with new brilliant ideas. Unforgotten are his instillations for Halloween 2005 in the city park of London or his steady spawning “Human Bein’s” in Berlin. His art on canvas as well as his skills as an illustrator won’t get him bored. Always loyal to his roots of skateboarding lots of projects like the companies VANS, TRASHER or HESSENMOB were born and even exhibitions on all continents were made by Dave.
No matter which medium is used all his works are combining his unmistakably sense of humor. You can literally feel the fun he’s having doing his work. The presented book is carrying this spirit forward to the readers and there propably won’t be anyone on this earth who can page through the 128 coloured pages without smiling.
