As part of Vandalog’s “Great in ’08” series, which will be running every day for the rest of the month. Check out previous posts here. Street artists from across the world have been given one post to give away to one artist who they feel has been doing great work recently. Today it’s Gaia’s turn (if you missed it, he was L.E.T.‘s pick yesterday). This response was actually taken from a larger Q&A with Gaia that will be posted on Vandalog as soon as I get my university applications in (I’ll hit “submit” this Friday).
Who is one artist doing really great work right now?
Gaia: The one person who has been really making a splash is the writer Booker/ReadMoreBooks/Rancour/HoodRich. While he has been getting up for quite some time now, his recent slew of rollers that he has pulled off in the past year are astounding. Always imaginative, always clean, and he has such a unique and free style.
See photos of Booker’s work after the jump…
If Booker has a website or flickr account that I don’t know about, somebody please let me know so I can link to it.
Thanks to Becki Fuller (AKA RFullerRD), Steve Rotman (funkandjazz – www.flickr.com/photos/phunk), and Danny Dawson (quasistoic) for photos, and Luna Park for both photos and her suggestions about which of his pieces to show here.
