Publicerad den 6 november 2015

In issue 01/2015 of Ekfrase: Nordic Journal of Visual Culture, Svein Torfinn Heddeland gives a very positive review of Peter Bengtsen's book The Street Art World (2014).

Heddeland concludes that Bengtsen's book, with its solid theoretical and empirical foundation, is a welcome addition to the increasing number of publications on street art and graffiti, and states that the book will "undoubtedly be used as a reference work in future studies of street art". The reviewer further remarks that the book is "unusually beautiful" and commends the "aesthetic expression in both design and selection of illustrations". <link https: ekfrase jo_t_brochmann_tagging_-_en_bok_om_stygt_som_pent_og_pete>The full review (in Norwegian) can be found here. <link en the-department staff peterbengtsen>More about Peter Bengtsen
