DF: Idiots on Parade
Graffiti culture has gone from a small but devoted urban following to widespread popularity. It now influences everything from popular music, comics, and fashion to tattoos and advertising. After 20 years of collaboration, the DF graffiti crew is recognized worldwide as the preeminent purveyors of this art form that operates with equal panache in plush venues and subterranean, often illegal, locales. This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the work of 21 of the DF artists, displaying their mix of irreverence, ingenuity, daring, and talent. It includes works from Dalek, Scribe, Rapes, Emit, Merz, Sub, Cycle, Quisp, East, and Carter Gilliss aka “Clark Kent,” whose grotesque juxtapositions of the everyday and the extraordinary show why the group is so distinctive. The art is shown in various contexts, including galleries and museums, popular magazines, children’s books, toys, and of course the dynamic street scene that made them famous.
