The day when graffiti was reviled as "vandalism" have long been left behind - top street artists are now a big draw for both galleries and collectors. But the original impetus to decorate public space with personal with artistic statements ranging from the revolutionary to the intensely intimate still makes a liberating appeal to these creative types.

Street Art: Guerrilla Style

From vandalism to avant-garde

Jean-Michel Basquiat, Banksy, Shepard Fairey, JR and the once much-maligned world of street art now has its own pantheon of pioneers whose work competes with that of more conventional artists for collectors' dollars and gallery space. What started out as "graffiti" and was condemned by many as vandalism has come of age and achieved a high measure of respectability.

But a rebellious streak still runs through most of its practitioners, who revel in turning the streets we live and work in into one huge space for art appreciation - with or without the blessing of officialdom. We interview and show the work of 14 leading such creatives, all of whom have trenchant views on providing art for the people, whether or not they ever knew they wanted it.

Motion Gallery: Projection Mapping

Tripping the light fantastic

You really can't believe your eyes these days — not when you're exposed to Projection Mapping. Shining stars in this issue's DVD are 17 leading international studios and designers who specialise in making magic by playing with our optical perceptions, creating imaginative illusions in real time in the real world.

As the X-Files had it, what can be imagined can be achieved. Lighting artists have long dreamed of being able to "paint" on a real canvas and now it's happened: with Projection Mapping, buildings, vehicles, even the human body can be used to create astounding 3D effects on their surfaces. Add in synchronised sound and interactive participation and a magical new technique has come into being that has to be seen to be believed.

Creative Country: Slovenia

Packing a powerful punch for a small player

With only a third of Hong Kong's population, and a land-mass half the size of Switzerland, Slovenia has only been an independent country for 20 years, but it has a rich heritage of both Slavic and Western culture and its people are naturally artistically inclined. So where does this leave the local design scene? In the midst of an exciting transition is where.

"Good design is one that benefits all mankind, whether its influence is large or small. Those who have exiled themselves to big foreign cities such as New York, Paris and Tokyo, and have won lots of awards, will never be an example for me, because I think there is still a lot for me to do here and a long way to go."

As Types Grow Older – Re-issuring 'Sadness' and 'Grimoire' – Cologne, Germany

Felix Braden’s very first typefaces 'Sadness' and 'Grimoire' have just been published in new and revised versions at Myfonts. After the tragic end of the established Fountain Type Foundry he had to ask himself the following question: Is there still any justification for the existence of his 20 year old fonts? 'Sadness' was based on experiments during his stay at the Trier College of Design, 'Grimoire' on the other hand combines two seemingly contradicting principles – calligraphic and constructive ideas – and makes them work together. The font is based on a modular system but simulates a handwritten typeface. Both fonts are available for €5 at Myfonts with a introductory discount of 80% until 19 MAY.

"For me, a good design is one that is as long-lasting as possible. The most rewarding experience for me as a design professional was a short film I made about my design called The Daily You, which made some of the audiences that saw it cry."
