Description - Blek le Rat: Getting through Walls by Sybille Prou

This book is a unique view inside the life and work of one of the most private, but also one of the most loved, most applauded and most influential figures in the vibrant world of street art. Blek le Rat is revered and acknowleged by the international street and graffiti community, and his work has influenced record and CD design, advertising and graphics, as well as the work of many street artists around the world.

From small, simple stencils to complex multimedia events, the distinctive and ground-breaking art of Blek le Rat is showcased here for the first time, demonstrating the fascinating development of his technique and creativity over two decades. Whether it's his unique images of Lady Diana and kidnapped French journalist Florence Aubenas or his iconic silhouette of a rat, we see why 'The Genius of Blek' is hailed in King Adz's film about this mysterious and elusive, yet deeply creative figure.

Blek le Rat offers stunning photography of over 300 of the artist's work in situ. With an in-depth personal exploration of the method and meaning behind Blek's stencils, as well as a taste of the evolution of urban art from New York, Paris, Barcelona and Buenos Aires to London, Taipei, Naples and Berlin, this book cannot fail to inspire street and urban enthusiasts and students alike.
