Author Talk: Caleb Neelon
The Book of Awesome (2009) deliberately ignores the obvious global centers of New York, Los Angeles, and London to document artist Caleb Neelon's street presence in places like Kathmandu, Sao Paulo, and Tegucigalpa. Neelon has made art on five continents, collaborating with noted street artists Os Gemeos and Andrew Schoultz, and made work in streets where he is the first foreigner—let alone street painter—to wander in quite some time. The Book of Awesome provides an overview of the work of this diverse and distinctive artist, including material relating to his Boston-based work.
Caleb Neelon is an artist, writer, and educator. He is an editor at the popular culture bi-monthly Swindle, and has been a contributing writer to Tokion, Print, Juxtapoz, On The Go, and Lemon. Neelon's paintings and installation artwork have appeared in exhibitions, on murals, and in publications around the world.
