From small and simple stencils to complex multimedia events, the distinctive and groundbreaking art of Blek le Rat is showcased here for the first time, demonstrating the fascinating development of his technique and creativity over two decades.

This book, with its indepth personal exploration of Blek's motives and working methods, and his own comments on the meaning of his art, also offers a taste of the evolution of urban art from NewYork, Paris, Barcelona and Buenos Aires, to London, Taipei, Naples and Berlin.
