We are dropping some SIGNED first edition copies of Cheryl Dunn's seminal book, Some Kinda Vocation. These are out of print and hard to find in mint condition. Ours are new, minty fresh and signed by the artist. We are selling these for the same price as they were normally sold - unsigned when the book originally came out in 2007.
Also included is a rare, 60-minute film (DVD) documenting the scene imported to Tokyo and focused on 13 artists in particular--including McGee, Johanson, Mills, Killgallen, Templeton, Frost, Thomas Campbell, Stephen Powers, Tommy Guerrero, Todd James, and Mark Gonzales. Through candid interviews, riveting footage of art in action, and a massive demolition derby in the streets of Tokyo, the film captures these artists just before they broke through to the mainstream (thanks to Beautiful Losers). Features extra rare footage of all of the artists as well as short films about Johanson and Gonzales.
Photographer and filmmaker Cheryl Dunn has been one of America's foremost chroniclers of the underground scene since the mid-1990s. This first retrospective looks at the worlds of street art, graffiti and life on the creative margins from an appreciative insider's point of view. It features documentary photographs of San Francisco artists like Barry McGee, Margaret Kilgallen and Chris Johanson, as well as others from Los Angeles and her home town of New York, including, like Phil Frost, Mike Mills and Ed Templeton.
