XOOOOX

Clever critique of consumer culture
Posted by Gestalten—02/2012

The first German street artist to come to prominence on the international art market releases his first monograph.
It focuses mainly on his portraits of female models that he prefers to stencil or wheat-paste onto surfaces of older buildings scarred by the passage of time. Other work featured are the artist's reinterpretations of brand logos such as Hermés, Chanel or H&M as statements against the superficial promise of luxury. 

The documentation of XOOOOX’s work on the street is complemented by photographs of select exhibitions and of the artist at work. The book is edited by Benjamin Wolbergs, an author and photographer who specializes in subjects related to urban art.
