"When a Banksy original turns up (usually prised off a wall) and sells for £300,000, and when today's newspaper reports on a London opening for the work of the Mexican street-art collective Lapiztola, we know that graffiti has come in from the cold. In October 2013 Banksy even had a month-long 'residency' in New York, saying that he was there 'for the spirit and audacity'. It is that vibrant culture, an integral part of a city in a league of its own in terms of urban canvas material, that the photographer and writer Yoav Litvin aims to capture in Outdoor Gallery - New York City. Litvin succeeds, not only because of the breadth of styles his photographs show, but also because of the richness of the stories behind the paint and stencils. These artists include teachers, parents, loners and fashion designers. They are not all young and alienated. A surprising number are women. Some are older than you may imagine, having been stencilling and spraying for more than 30 years." --Eye MagazineReseña del editor:
