Blek le Rat is known worldwide for the quirky ideas and radical politics he has brought to his art form – stencilled street art. His paintings are autobiographical, born of his personal experience, and his art has inspired the post-graffiti street artists who have followed. After stencilling provocative images in major cities throughout the world, he now lives in a small town outside of Paris and maintains his presence on the street by pasting up posters. He has worked on the walls of the biggest museums in the world and the streets of the cities in which we live for almost four decades and many art historians have acknowledged him as the leader of the stencilled street art movement. This copiously illustrated book, with hundreds of stencilled images reproduced in colour, traces Blek Le Rat’s entire career to date.
