Figment is finally having a book launch!
From the fb page:
‘Figment’ is the first book from Toby Fairbank who runs the Melbourne street art and graffiti website allThoseShapes, http://allthoseshapes.com/, which now has over 300 artist pages and 8000 photos from around Melbourne.
Figment’s 200 pages contain over 320 photos most in landscape A4 placed together somewhat randomly as you would find them in the streets. The adventures are shown visually with all artist information and text left till the end of the book to let the art speak for itself.
Some of the art comes from the more obvious places such as the infamous Hosier Lane; some from regularly pasted places like Fitzroy, Northcote and Brunswick, some from the railways and some from abandos like the now departed Collingwood silos.
The artists in the book come from Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, New Zealand, Iran, UK, Italy, Belgium, Japan, Brazil, France, ++ though all the art was created in Melbourne.
For most of the art in this book, Figment is now all that remains. If you would like to have a copy of this sweet reminder, Figment is being launched on Thursday 16th January @ Trunk bar 275 Exhibition St, Melbourne.
There will be live art by Rus Kidd & Loadz (and possibly one other…!) which can be purchased at the end of the night (if you are lucky enough to be first!) music by euonim and copies of Figment to be bought and signed.
