We live in one of those magical cities where we don't even need to visit a gallery take in fine art -- all we have to do is just step outside. The San Francisco Bay Area has always been a veritable hotbed for street art since its humble beginnings, and is documented in great detail through photographer Steve Rotman's new book, Bay Area Graffiti. The book amasses an impressive collection of street art from throughout the Bay with epic shots of graffiti blending into city landscapes, and also includes interviews from dozens of Bay Area-based artists. Bay Area Graffiti hits shelves this January from Mark Batty Publishers. Visit markbattypublisher.com for ordering info. --Oscar Pascual
