In a world where the remix culture is at the base of every great invention, King Kong, with their DIY philosophy did not literally invent anything, but in fact conceived something fresh, new and original by opening a window onto a whole new world of images, sensations and reconstructions. King Kong is a talented team, that despite being scattered around the world, chose to take on this extraordinary editorial project. By displaying the work of some of the most creative minds from around the globe, the book stunningly shows how different life paths and approaches merge together into a singular perspective of the streets. These artists are Giorgio Di Salvo, Camilla Donzella, Panda, Lele Saveri and Sha Ribiero and their project aims to exhibit personalities and to capture the emotion and cliches of a post-modern, post-political, and post-artistic first generation. This beautiful intersection of illustrations and photography is paired with an insightful introductory text by Federico Sarica.
