The best part of the book is the beginning section with how to recipes on making guerilla art supplies wheat paste, homemade stickers, seed balls, stencils for fabric applications, etc The exercises are a good start to getting the creative juices flowing.
Standing up remarkably well after ten years, I only wishThe Guerilla Art Kitwas a little longer and meatier In this day and age, when speaking up and speaking out is important than ever, I think this book is ripe for a thick new edition
Aw, that s neat Kind of funny to have a book to tell you how to be creative, but it s full of neat ideas My fave is the paper dice you cut out with arrows pointing in all different directions, and you take a walk rolling the die each time you get to a corner and go the way it points I ll have to try it some time
Keri Smith always has a delightful approach to creativity and community art There are some sweet ideas in here and as always, the design and layout of her books are wonderful.
Mostly legal ideas for fun guerilla art
LOVED it apparently i ve been experimenting with guerilla art without knowing it had a name like, i leave books around and even did a bookhunters thing while i was in detroit then i did a thing called keysintrees where i make a small hanging string art thing with a key on the end and a cute saying like the key to happiness isn t getting what you want, it s wanting what you have this little book gave me some new ideas like hidden fortunes and a wish tree FUN
YOU NEED THIS.
Should art only be accessible to the select few who can afford it Should creative expression be hidden away in an art gallery Creativity inspires us Art evokes emotion and makes us ThinkBlink It engages us to challenge the status quo So, why should art be relegated to just a gallery Keri Smith s book The Guerilla Art Kit, gives you some insight into what you need to know before putting your message out into the world.Full review thinkblink blog p 858 ShilpaRaikar SukasaReads
This book would be awesome if I weren t old and curmudgeonly.Still, the Moss Graffitti sounds awesome Bascially blend moss with buttermilk and paint it on a damp and cool wall Moss will then grow.Also I like The Unexpected Object though sounds a lot like geocaching without GPS AND I like Miniature Environments which is where you made a little diorama in a surprise place.Ok, nevermind I really like this book But I don t know if I could get away with some of the bolder projects Or, if I would want [...]
creative and innovative ideas and concepts are found right here in this book there s never a dull moment in reading, and scanning through this book I recommend this to who wants to try creating guerilla art, to the rebel free spirited artist who wants to make a change in his her neighborhood, town, city, and to the world DIt may be a little pricey but hey, it s worth every peso
The author just took a lot of other people s ideas and compiled them in a things to do book Maybe this would seem original to kids young teens and I m showing myself to be too elderly and jaded to appreciate what is in fact a pretty cute little book
Humorous at least I found it humorous and interesting how to be a guerilla artist, making art in public places, art including graffiti, signage, performance, and decoration Public Art says, the human spirit is alive here.
This book really doesn t have a plot at all Its just mainly this book of these random activites that you can do to express your ideas in public I thought it was pretty cool, and i planned on doing some with a few of my friends Hopefully they turn out well
Easy to follow instructions on common guerrilla art methods eg stickers, wheat paste, stencils, seed bombs, etc.I would have liked to have seen examples and historical context FYI it had a very Pinterest do good feel not very guerrilla lol.
1 As expected, I don t like it so far Seems the older I get the cynical I become towards new concepts I will continue to read because I usually end up liking the new activities foreshadowing my own future.
courtesy of Chris for my birthday lovely, fun and inspiring now to get out there and do some of the projects
I was inspired Interesting, doable ideas coupled with basic how to s for the fledgling guerilla artist.
Buy this Go play.
templates for moustaches to post on billboards instructions on how to make wheatpaste trouble in a book
Hey, if anyone wants to commit acts of guerrilla art with me, lemme know
Not only is this book filled with wonderful ideas and techniques, it also sparks new ideas in the reader.
Inspiring A book I ll return to regularly for creative inspiration, and ideas for looking at my world in a new light.
not what i expected wish it was bigger a lot of cool ideas seems like a fun idea for a bored day.
Keri Smith can do no wrong All hail Keri.
Inspiring in some ways In others, seems confining but after all, it calls itself a kit so what s to be expected
Really inspiring book I m definitely gonna try several of these things I really appreciated the focus on being environmental friendly
Great IdeasYou just may have to be careful with whom you share them.
This book inspired and taught me Adorable illustration for a good cause, and something I love Guerilla Art
LOVE IT All rebels activists and artists Need to read this
