By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 1, 2011
Format: Hardcover
HEROES & VILLAINS: Portraits of Contemporary Artists comes onto the literary scene as a volume documenting a very special art movement that has been outside the mainstream so long that it is now slipping into the museums and galleries instead of remaining on the streets and in the conversations of those truly informed art devotees who have an ever-open eye an dear for the innovative morphing of redefined art. These heroes and villains have been expressing their agendas and their unique thoughts on the buildings of our cities around the world in the art form of graffiti now celebrated by at least one major museum - the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles - and in the graphic novels, handmade books carrying social comments, performance, and painted or drawn art that takes a critical look at our society and its vagaries. If artists are those shamans who inform us of our meaning, then the artists honored here are directly involved.

Photographers Tatiana Wills and Roman Cho have been creating portraits of these often strange artists who are less concerned with fame than with freedom of expression and the obsession to inform us of our follies and our under-appreciated beauties - a project that represents six years of traveling around the country and creating the portraits we are privileges to see here. Most are full page color works of individual artists or groups of artists who work together while others are framed with white border and others are in rich black and white. Whatever the format the portraits are more than posed photographs of interesting appearing people. Wills and Cho have discovered windows into the personalities and quirks and unique dress that make these fascinating psychological studies.

A book that delivers what the title promises. Spectacular photographs and engaging interviews that tell us so much about the "heroes and villains" of subculture art, from graffiti to comic books. The photographers have chosen a wide variety of poses, setting, focal lengths and cropping to convey real feeling.
