The Adventures of Darius and Downey: and other true tales of street art

Gallery Bon Bon

Regular price R 100.00

An unparalleled book on street art and artists, the first to be entirely narrative-driven.

Through a series of true stories, this unique book reveals the tight-knit, exciting world of street art. Darius (aka Leon Reid) and Downey (aka Brad Downey) did their first piece together in Brooklyn in 2000--a life-changing experience marking the birth of a partnership that would go on to revolutionize street art.

Ed Zipco, an acute and empathetic commentator on urban graffiti art, relates their most memorable experiences, from their early exploits and brushes with the law to their work internationally in London and Berlin. Along the way, we witness their artistic evolution from conventional graffiti tagging to ambitious street installation that are both wittily entertaining and startlingly subversive.

The introduction is by renowned street artist Swoon, famed for her intricate paper cutouts.
