Wild Art is an incredibly vivid, colourful and current collection of over 300 extraordinary artworks that are too offbeat, outrageous, kitsch, quirky or funky to 'make it' in the formal art world of galleries and museums. From pimped cars and graffiti to extreme body art, ice sculpture, flash mobs, burlesque acts, portraits made from bottle tops, paintings made by animals, light shows, carnivals and giant artworks that can only truly be appreciated from the air, this book has it all. The works featured here are variously moving, funny or shocking, celebrating the beauty and art in anything and everything.

Authors David Carrier and Joachim Pissarro have studied alternative and underground art forms and cultures for years and have compiled the ultimate collection of creative works to challenge and engage every reader's perception of what is and isn't art.
