    Boundary breaking graffiti writer CES53 publishes first time overview of his artwork, embodying 40 years of work.

    “Ces53 – CLOWN / MASTER MANIPULATOR / STYLE MASTER / BAD BOY / LEGEND / WRITER / ANARCHIST / FREAK / FOOL / BOUNDARY BREAKER / ARTIST” depicts a huge selection of Ces53 his artwork. Drawings, paintings, sculptures, legal, illegal, shocking and beautiful. All compiled in a 400 page full colour, hard cover bound book. With nearly 2000 photos probably the first graffiti writer showcasing such a large body of work in one object. ‘Being the first’ isn’t new to Ces53; he was the first to paint a train from left to right, top to bottom in the Netherlands, he was the one making train writing a true crusade in the Netherlands, he was the first to paint a train in Belgium, to most non-Germans he is the one that put Berlin on the map as a graffiti playground. Until we recently found out he wasn’t, but for 25 years we all thought that he was the first Dutchie to paint a train in New York. Ces53 was the first in jail for graffiti for longer than a night or two in the Netherlands. He ignited train graffiti as a true believe, and inspired the notorious MSN crew, and many others in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe to pour oil on the fire he started. Besides all the facts, Ces53 is a true and original when it comes to authenticity and style; the shapes, the characters, the colours…it is all his own. His work from childhood until recent graffiti on trains is now available in a carefully designed book. With text contributions by Milk, Eras, Sento, Cat22 and many more.

Book of ZACK

  • Book of ZACK

    24.90

    In the 90s, the Frankfurt writer ZACK was very present on the trains in the Rhine-Main area under various pseudonyms. He played a major role in shaping the golden years of train writing in the metropolis – a time when almost every commuter train was covered with graffiti and colorful panels and wholecars were often in traffic for months.

    In Book of ZACK he gives an insight into his career on steel at the time, and also new works on walls since his comeback in 2018 can be seen.

    Many of his images are accompanied by texts to the respective actions and let the reader share in his memories. The book is rounded off with additional guest contributions from some of his companions at the time.

Decades vol. 1 1990-2000

  • Decades vol. 1 1990-2000

    54.00

    This first volume is the beginning of a trilogy of books (Vol. 2 2000-2010 / Vol. 3 2010-2020) presenting 30 years of graffiti in Berlin. With a selection from thousands of photos, a picture of the development of the graffiti subculture in Berlin emerges in an authentic way. In addition, a variety of personal texts by the authors give an intimate insight into their experiences and perspectives. On the one hand, these texts convey a very vivid picture of the life of the Berlin graffiti scene, on the other hand, they allow the reader to experience the Berlin of days gone by.

    The first issue portrays writers and crews between 1990 and 2000, with the fall of the Wall kicking off the graffiti boom in Berlin. In the aftermath, a huge adventure playground opened up for Berlin writers, with unresolved police courts and a sometimes disoriented adult world creating the ideal breeding ground for what is now probably the largest and most active graffiti scene in the world. The focus is on the application of graffiti on trains, which is also the subject of most of the pictures and texts in the book, but uncensored private pictures and graffiti on walls are also presented.

    This first volume contains portraits with many photos and personal texts or comments of the following graffiti authors and crews:

    BAS2, BOY, CATS, CHILL, CHIO, DEON, DISNE, DMB, DRUM, FOK, INKA, KEL, KMER, KAMEL, LYTE, ODEM, POET62, REW, RUZD, DSYER, SEKD, SHEK, SOME, STEAK, TFB, TOK, TORCH, TOWN, VDS, WEX and many more.

    Also included in the book are mixed chapters with hundreds of photos of many other graffiti writers and crews from the 90s.

    TOPSPRAYER EXPIRED – The limitation period edition

    The INTERNATIONAL TOPSPRAYER book published by Publikat in 2011 – which has been sold out for several years and traded at horrendous prices on Ebay – is now coming back in a completely revised limitation period edition. Like the first version, the successor will again feature the legendary lenticular shaking cover, which crisply sums up their concept.

    It is believed that shortly after its release, a note similar to the following will be found in the files of various graffiti investigation groups: „Between 2007 and 2010, the defendants MOSES and TAPS switched their pseudonyms. With the help of an unknown number of others involved in the crime, they bombed 1000 trains over a period of 1000 days. In May 2011, they published their deeds in the illustrated book INTERNATIONAL TOPSPRAYER. However, since no evidence of perpetration could be derived from the book, the relevant preliminary proceedings had to be finally closed after ten years due to the occurrence of the statute of limitations according to section 78 of the Criminal Code.

    After the expiry of the statute of limitations, MOSES & TAPS are now clearing the air with the book TOPSPRAYER EXPIRED, MOSES & TAPS now comprehensively admit all accusations of the proceedings in words and pictures. Furthermore, the suspects supplement the accusations with previously unknown photographs and descriptions of the crimes. In addition, several hundred previously unknown graffiti crimes are documented, especially from the years 2011 and 2012.”

    Ucieczka Od Rzeczywistości.
    The unique publication that takes you back in time. Explore unseen moments. Doktor IDMTR

    Escape From Reality is a sentimental trip into the past, to the nineties, in the company of the community passionate about aerosol art. Graffiti pieces, both on trains and walls, would for years be considered nothing more than distasteful eyesores lacking any form of design. The artists would be perceived as ignorant vandals. However, over the years the overview on street art has changed.

    The graffiti culture is deeply rooted in Polish reality, so it deserves to be documented and described. Escape From Reality is an authentic testimony of people connected to this art. It presents plenty of personal writings approachable for readers from all backgrounds – writings that portray street artists’ everyday lives and passion. All of these stories did really happen, but weren’t disclosed up to this point. This book will let them see the light of day.

    This publication aims to reach an audience of those interested in art and history of the nineties as well as those who want to immerse into the hermetic community of Polish and worldwide train writing. It will be a unique publication on the book market and an important event for the Polish graffiti community.

    Escape From Reality aims to present the community and culture of Polish graffiti at the turn of the century – in the nineties. On the 144 pages of the book, I will present an awe-inspiring collection of private photographs, personal reflections and stories that break age-old stereotypes and show a different, positive view on graffiti. This work will be an act of opening up by one of the most prolific Silesian graffiti writers of the late nineties, who currently does his art in the UK – Doktor MTR.
