Stickers - Stuck-Up Piece of Crap

STICKERS - Punk Rock to Contemporary Art

aka Stuck-Up Piece of Crap

Whether you're a punk, skater, graffiti artist, musician, 
clothing brand, political activist, fine artist, or just a fan of a 
band, stickers have always been the perfect way to express 
oneself.

Starting in 1966 with Andy Warhol's Banana sticker for the 
Velvet Underground "STICKERS" chronicles the 
development of the art form as it spans cultural and 
artistic genres of the last half-century. It documents 
the evolution of stickers from early Californian skate culture, the punk rock pioneers, 
early hip hop, techno/rave culture, graffiti, controversial politics,
right up to contemporary street & fine art. 
A large section focuses on non traditional sticker mediums, such as wheatpastes, 
tiles, mirror or anything else an artist chooses to work with that utilizes adhesive materials.
