Stickers: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art

January 24th, 2011 at 11:37 pm

If you’v ever been intrigued by the enigmatic little adhesive treasures found in dense urban areas like NYC, then I recommend checking out an art book simply titled, Stickers. It’s authored by my good friend and colleague DB Burkeman, an old school cat who is largely responsible for pioneering the rave and drum & bass scene in the US . DB came to NYC in the 80′s, when graffiti and punk was still thriving, with already having an affinity for the medium in England, and like anyone coming to NYC with an artistic taste, immediately became enamored by the ever changing creative life of the street.

This book is the culmination of obsessively collecting stickers for many years, and even more so with the help of friends when he discovered he needed to share his collection with the world through this book.

Stickers is very comprehensive, it not only touches on the originating graffiti and punk cultures, but expands from skate graphics, to contemporary art, to big brands with cult followings.

Another reason why i’m plugging this thing. Two pages feature my handmade postal stickers from a couple street campaigns two summers ago (pictured above). It’s really an honor to share a book with some legendary artists and writers like Revs & Cost, and well, pretty much everyone who made a name for themselves. This book really is a who’s who.

The photos above are of the limited edition hard cover version (only 300). Which came with a bundle of hand signed stickers. The last shot is of Typcut artist Lee Trice’s contribution.
