An international survey of the very best artists working today in dubstep graphics, the vanguard visual component to the international electronic music phenomenon
Originally an electronic dance music form from the garage, drum and bass, and dub reggae clubs of South London, dubstep has merged with street art, pop art, and design to become a global design and music phenomenon, now entering the mainstream and influencing the likes of Snoop Dogg and Rihanna. The artists that supplied the scene with its imagery for t-shirts, posters, logos, and merchandising have grown a fantastic and distinct brand of provocative graphic design, pop artworks, and street art. Their subversion of regular corporate brands and language have also become a witty trope in recent advertising campaigns. The best of these artists worldwide are featured here, with amazing imagery and detailed analysis showing their influences and connections. This volume is essential for all graphic designers, fascinating for anyone into the club scene, and of interest for those wanting to keep abreast of street art and contemporary visual culture.
"It's a fascinating read...You can read it in easy chunks, or, as I did, devour it because you can't stop checking out what one more director had to say."--"Omaha World Herald"
