Edited by Carlos Fundora

Forward by Monica Rose Kelly

With a forward by NOLA muralist & illustrator, Monica Rose Kelly, this book chronicles some of the history of street art and graffiti in New Orleans and looks at how this ephemeral art form has adorned the streets of New Orleans—coming and going—and shares the context of the murals, tags, wheatpastes, slap ups, and masterpieces.

 

WHY YOU WANT IT

No book like it exists, New Orleans: Murals, Street Art & Graffiti Volume 1 

This initial printing is being offered at a significant discount and in a limited quantity!

To raise awareness of the art being created in New Orleans at the street level, getting this book in hands outside of the city will associate NOLA with the broader international movement taking place. I want NOLA artists to see their work in professional print among many other world-class artists. I want a copy in the Martha Cooper Library at Urban Nation in Berlin, in the Museum of Street Art in Amsterdam and Poland and circulating the hands of people all over the country.

Let’s get the street art of New Orleans out in the world!

WHO WROTE IT  & WHY

My name really is Kady Perry, and for the past ten years, I have devoted my life to organizing, promoting, advocating for (and once creating) murals, public art and street art, and graffiti. I recently graduated this past May with an M.A. in Arts Administration from the University of New Orleans. I have devoted the past year writing and designing a book on the visual art found in the streets of New Orleans and co-founding a non-profit to promote street art in New Orleans called NOLA Art Walk.

 
After building close friendships with local street artists over the years curating shows and helping artists get paid gigs—I found myself overseas or in New York wanting to share their work. It was clunky to pull out my phone and navigate IG. I realized it was time to find a quick and easier way! I began to dig through my collection of pictures and, given the volume of images, I started in the neighborhood I live in.  I have individually reached out and interviewed over fifty artists and custom designed pages for each with a back and forth dialogue to ensure they love what will go out into the world.

 

The first book is complete and ready to be ordered!
