Street Artist Edwin & Don't Fret Collaborative Book

Following the successful opening of their joint exhibition 'The Distinct Sound Of Laughter In The Distance' at Unit5 Gallery (Previously on Hookedblog) earlier this week, UK based artist Edwin and US-based street artist Don't Fret have released a collaborative book to tie in with their current exhibition.

For the past year Don't Fret has been tagging Edwin’s words and messages all over Chicago, and Edwin, in turn, has been tagging Don't Fret's words and text all over London. This collaboration which began as a simple experiment in social communication, activism, and as a 'graffiti pen pal project' quickly expanded with the events of 2016.

The UK’s Brexit Vote, the turmoil of the US Presidential Election, the Refugee Crisis, each of these events has had an influence on a project about a world that is so connected, yet disconnected. We are more capable than ever of communicating with one another, yet perhaps the least capable of actually learning from that exchange. Hence, 'The Distinct Sound Of Laughter In The Distance'.
