Fabled as a region that embraces freedom of expression in all of its guises, the San Francisco Bay Area has long been a world-renowned cultural hotbed. Now in paperback, Bay Area Graffiti is the first comprehensive retrospective of the area’s vibrant contemporary street-art scene. Documented by the distinctive photographic eye of Steve Rotman, the book’s images showcase innovative art made all over the Bay Area, as well as how it blends into the region’s stunning landscapes.
Rotman’s photographs are accompanied by dozens of artist interviews—with the likes of JENKS, ABNO, CHUBS, HARSH, NESTA, REYES, CYMES, APEX, and many, many more—which reveal personal stories, insights into inspiration, and harrowing tales of agility, all in the name of getting up.
Steve Rotman is a San Francisco-based photographer who trains his lens on urban art. Under his internet handle Funkandjazz, he has posted more than ten thousand images on the web and established himself as a true aficionado of Bay Area graffiti and street art.
