More About This Textbook

Overview

Artist Michael De Feo (aka The Flower Guy) has plastered his painted flowers in cities all over the world, 15,000 in the streets of Manhattan alone. Alphabet City: Out On the Streets is his first book. It's a vibrant body of work inspired by the acute observational skills of children who would stop on the street and point out De Feo's art to their parents, while he was in the act of installing it. Ten years of witnessing this phenomenon, the arrival of his first child Marianna, and the fact that many of his street artist friends were also having children were the drivers behind this unique publication: De Feo's alphabet presented in the context of the streets of Manhattan, a book for both adults and children.

Hand painted, made of paper and glue this work examines the concept of street art spawned by childhood memories. It is friendly, approachable and ephemeral all at once. In the real world De Feo's fleeting images invite interaction simply because they won't exist for much longer than a month -- in this book they will. Bound as a board book, Alphabet City: Out On the Streets is guaranteed to appeal to children, and there's absolutely no doubt that it will appeal to adults, particularly those who are established and budding fans of Michael De Feo. His work first appeared in books such as The Art of Rebellion, I NY, Stick'em Up, Street Logos and Graffiti World, and it has been featured in many newspaper and magazine articles around the world.

Michael De Feo has a BFA in Graphic Design from the School of Visual Arts and a MAT in Art Education from Manhattanville College. He currently teaches art at a high school in Connecticut. His art adorns the streets of New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, Amsterdam, Utrecht, and Munich and his works have been exhibited in art shows around the world.
