Lovers of street art worldwide, you’ll be having a new book in your coffee table wish list soon enough. SURFACE is a new book by Danish fine art photographer Søren Solkær, and it will feature portrait anthologies of some of the most interesting street artists today.
Containing 135 portraits of both pioneering icons and today’s most significant street artists and graffiti writers, the 240-page hardcover coffee table book is one of the most anticipated releases this year. Søren, we’re told, spent the last three years documenting all these artists from all corners of the globe.
The extensive photo book features many TAE favs plus other amazing artists, including ROA, Seen, Swoon, Shepard Fairey, Blek Le Rat, Ron English, Faile, Conor Harrington, Space Invader, Vhils, Borondo, Todd James, Aryz and so much more.
SURFACE will be having a very global reach as well, not just as a book – so far there are already six exhibitions related being planned worldwide: Sydney, Melbourne, Los Angeles, New York, Copenhagen and Vancouver.
This much buzz is being created for SURFACE, and fellow Danish filmmaker Tine Juul Reingaard Hansen has been busy documenting a major part of the making of the book. Soon a full length documentary will be released, and here’s the teaser you can check out:
