Viral Art: How the Internet Has Shaped Street Art and Graffiti,’ a new ebook by awesome local dude and Vandalog creator, RJ Rushmore, traces how the histories of street art and graffiti have been shaped by communication technologies, from trading photos by hand to publishing books to sharing videos online… And it’s out today!

“If you want to understand street art and graffiti, you have to understand how books, movies, magazines, photographs and the internet have affected artists and fans,” explains Rushrore, adding: “[‘Viral Art’] is the most comprehensive look to date at how the internet has affected street art and graffiti. Conceptualizing the internet as a public space, I conclude the book by arguing that the future of street art and graffiti may lie in digital interventions rather than physical ones.”

Love, love, LOVE this! (RJ even mentions this here blog in the book…) Definitely worth checking out! Read it here.
