Several weeks ago, our recently released Interaction of Color iPad app caught the attention of veteran New Haven street artist BiP, a self-professed Albers fan. Of course we had to let BiP know, too, about our brand new print publication The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti, by Rafael Schacter, and as we did, we realized something: there is a huge range of stunning street art right in Yale University Press’s own back yard! The Yale ARTbooks blog asked an adventurous intern to sally forth and learn more. This is what she – and we – found: a collection of pieces that we think reflect a sense of optimism and play, adding a colorful punch to New Haven’s urban surroundings. Whether created as public art installations by established artists like Josef Albers himself, or painted by the notoriously secretive BiP, these works harmonize with each other in interesting and unexpected ways.
