lap in the Face: A Tribute to Sticker and Graffiti Art\, heralds the rise of sticker art\, which has evolved as a bi product of street art\, a movement from the 1970's that has since become a global phenomenon. The stickers featured are at times derogatory\, humorous \, refined\, or crass\; while some are eulogies\, others are as straight-fo rward as tagging one’s name. Specially adopted for the ease of vandalism\, their fast and low-impact appeal is a cost-effective solution to other risk ier methods of graffiti such as: spray paint\, wheatpasting\, scribing and etching. The peel-and-slap of sticker art allows the artist time to develop and detail their final product. The goal is to inform an often unwilling p articipant/viewer\, alter the landscape\, impact social consciousness and g ain recognition by other street artists. To succeed is to proliferate an ar ea of graffiti with high-quality images or text. The more stickers\, the mo re dominance. More than a call for infamy\, sticker art effectively present s a concise\, transitory\, democratic and accessible form of art\, and addr esses topics such as: ownership\, social hierarchy\, socio-economic politic s and artistic boundaries. Work often is a declaration. Ultimately\, the mo st compelling motivation behind sticker slapping may be the earnest desire to show presence\, to exist\, to locate oneself\, to be heard in an environ ment which resists it.
