The journey into the colourful world of the mural art continues.
The book MURAL ART Vol.2 – MURALS ON HUGE PUBLIC SURFACES AROUND THE WORLDfollows on in old manner to the impressive murals of the first edition. On 272 pages, landscape format, once more the reader can go on an optical journey around the world, meeting over 120 artists, crews and organizations of the international scene around their best facades and walls. From Europe to Africa, from America to Asia and Oceania are presented 1000 walls with techniques from graffiti and stencil to trompe l’œil, suiting after everybody’s fancy.
The focus is on the increasing disappearance of the limits of traditional painting and street art. Where does traditional painting end and where starts street art? It becomes obvious that the limits blur more and more and a dissociation of each is just within the viewers – or in case of doubt within the authorities – discretion.
This time, too, the artists insist on providing the reader a personal insight to their artistic background and their motivation for bringing colour in our everyday life.
Artists like ALBUS CAVUS, CHARLES JOHNSTON, CLAUDIO ETHOS, CONORHARRINGTON, GERT NEUHAUS, HOW&NOSM, INTI, LOKISS, MACREW, NASIMO, POSE2,PUBLIC ART SQUAD,REMED, STICK UP KIDS,TRULY DESIGN, WOW123, WYLAND, ZBIOKand many more point out that in mural art, only sky is the limit!

Once more the hardcover book fulfills all requirements as a solid publication of reference for all people who are into art, general public and urban planners.
