THE BOOK

This book is a composite of his digital portraits of Facebook friends – with a grinning macaque monkey thrown in for good measure – along with their views on social media. His portraits emphasize an iconic aspect of social media culture, the portrait photographs serving as user profile pictures on social media sites. Using full-frontal portrait shots to focus on his subjects’ facial features, the artist has successfully assembled a gallery of faces, or quite literally, a "face book“.

ATA BOZACI | 1974

The artist and graphic designer Ata Bozaci, or «Toast», as he is popularly known in graffiti circles, was born in Burgdorf (Switzerland) to Turkish parents. He was educated in Switzerland and graduated with a degree in graphic-design in 1996.

Ata Bozaci is a truly versatile artist and moves comfortably across a wide spectrum of artistic techniques and media: from drawings to large-scale murals, traditional canvas paintings, graphic art to modular sculptures. His works were based on by classic graffiti writing; by the 1990s, the artist extended this field to embrace three-dimensional graffiti writing. He has been at the forefront of the international street art movement ever since and continues to push the boundaries. Fifteen Seconds of Fame is the artist’s second monograph. The first, Black Ink, was published in 2007.
