  • PATIPERRO – The diary of a Sudaka

    59.90

    „PATIPERRO“ is the book in which Ale VLOK explains his adventures painting trains and subways all around the world, based on his artistic creativity and his particular point of view: that of a Chilean who began the adventure of his life as an illegal immigrant in Barcelona.

    This editorial production is divided into 11 chapters, each represented by a portrait of the sneakers that our protagonist wore in each of the stories told. Throughout the book’s 392 pages, Ale VLOK narrates his experiences in different cities in an unusually honest way, joined by writers from all over the world, and accompanied by images and artistic pieces — all framed by a remarkable sense of aesthetics.

    Barcelona, New York, London, Berlin, Tokyo, Cape Town, Dublin, Bucharest, Bilbao, Porto and many other cities …

    29 cities over 4 continents, and more than 20 internationally renowned writers star in this editorial masterpiece dedicated to the most humane part of train graffiti.

    Although artistic photography plays a key role in this book, each episode also contains other elements that enhance the understanding of the emotions that Ale VLOK describes. For this, he uses a range of mediums, from artistic collages to portraits of writers, through photographs of objects of special value and, of course, photos of graffiti pieces.

    „PATIPERRO“ is undoubtedly one of the most original graffiti books in recent memory. In addition to its personal and exhilarating content, it stands out for the attention to aesthetic detail that is intertwined into the different narratives. A work that’s interesting not only for graffiti writers, but also for lovers of photography, art, design and adventure … as well an indispensable addition to the shelves any selfrespecting graffiti book collector.

    Graffiti on Parisian Trucks – Photographed by Good Guy Boris

    #TruckGraffich is a photobook, documenting the most present and vibrant transit graffich in the capital of France. While at the time (2016-2017) when the repression of vandal squad and the effectiveness of the buff on train and metro lines let almost no graffiti to be seen in traffic, on the surface of the city, few hundred of trucks were circulating full covered in graffiti. I managed to capture (almost) all of them and to put them in this book, filled with pieces, trow-ups and tags from various french & foreign writers.

  • Sven Willms – In Your America

    10.00

    Graffiti ist fester Bestandteil des urbanen Raums auf der ganzen Welt. Ungefragt reiht es sich in das Stadtbild und steht in seiner Authentizität in einem starken Kontrast zu geschönten Werbetafeln. Diese Kunst zu greifen, gar festzuhalten ist äußerst schwierig. Sie ist, aufgrund des meist illegalen Entstehungskontextes, von ihrem Wesen her flüchtig, immer in Bewegung in einem Kreislauf aus Werden und Vergehen. Um sie auszustellen und zu präsentieren, muss man sie auf Film bannen. Der Künstler Sven Willms dokumentiert in seinen Fotoarbeiten solche Werke und porträtiert deren Autoren als Verweis auf den Ort, der mit dieser Kunst unwiderruflich in Verbindung steht – die Straße.

  • Like Lipstick Traces

    29.90 19.90

    A spectacular photographic journey through the lenses of 13 graffiti artists.
    13 graffiti writers, 2 years, 600 unpublished Polaroids.
    Like Lipstick Traces shows the everyday life of 13 graffiti writers. Consciously, and therefore in contrast with usual graffiti publications, it uses the peculiar medium of Polaroid.
    A Polaroid camera and about one hundred Polaroid photos was sent to well known graffiti writers of different nationalities. The task was to shoot their everyday life with complete freedom in the choice of the motifs. It is that freedom which makes this book so special, but also the fact that all these unpublished photos were taken especially for the book.
    In the beginning of the 21st century, graffiti seems to be taking a line which is totally against its original motivation.
    On one hand, this might be caused by more severe penalties, on the other it is due to the increasing incorporation of the media and big business. Thus, the artists presented in this book devote themselves to this art in a committed way. They do not succumb to commercial pressure and they bring new life into the graffiti movement.
    Artists featured: Aroe (UK), C.B.S (DE), Dumbo (IT), Honet (FR), Kegr (DK), O’Clock (FR), Os Cururus (BR), Rate (USA), Remio (NOR), Rocky (ES), Scan (CA), Smash (CH), The E.R.S (BE).

  • 1207 – Portraits of Stockholm

    29.90 19.90

    Stockholm has been decorated by graffiti writers for more than twenty years. Now, for the first time, the people behind graffiti allow themselves to be portrayed. 1207 presents more than 50 of Stockholm’s most active and legendary graffiti writers. Photographer Torkel Sjöstrand has followed them and photographed them on their walks through the city for three years. From Spånga to Norsborg, Södertälje to Ekerö, suburb to inner city. In tunnels and on railroad tracks, or overlooking a magnificent vista of the city. Graffiti writers are fascinated by the places many people don’t notice. 1207 is a document of a small group of people who risk their own well-being for an art form that is constantly pilloried by politicians and the authorities. We are offered a different depiction of Stockholm, and a unique document of its graffiti writers. Moreover, all the writers have written their tag in the book. 1207 is the police code for destruction of property through graffiti. With an essay by Jacob Kimvall, art theoretician and an authority on graffiti. Foreword by Irok, Stockholm graffiti writer.

  • Tag Town

    19.90

    Graffiti hat sich bis in die entlegensten Winkel der Erde ausgebreitet und ist damit zur größten Kunstbewegung der Geschichte geworden und jeder Graffiti-Autor begann seine Writing-Karriere mit einem Tag. Die Entwicklung eines originalen, konsequent geschriebenen Namens ist die Haupthandlung eines Writers.
    Die Fotos in Tag Town aus den 60er Jahren zeigen uns die Ursprünge von Graffiti im New Yorker Stil.
    Tags und Pieces teilen ein gemeinsames Erbe, und wenn du eins verstehst, kannst du auch das andere verstehen.
    Für diejenigen, die lernen, Tags zu lesen, öffnet sich eine Welt des ästhetischen Ausdrucks und der Kommunikation. Tags sind eine universelle Sprache – der Jazz der Schrift. Tag Town enthält auch seltene Fotos von Arbeiten auf der Straße von Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring und Kenny Scharf, Künstler, deren Tag-inspirierte Arbeit geholfen hat, die schnell wachsende Street-Art-Bewegung zu gründen. Der begleitende Text basiert auf Interviews mit den New Yorker Graffiti-Pionieren Blade, Part 1 und Snake 1.

    Martha Cooper hat sich in New York City seit 30 Jahren darauf spezialisiert, urbane Kunst und Architektur zu fotografieren.

     

    Graffiti has spread to the far corners of the earth and in the process has become the biggest art movement in history and every graffiti writer began his or her writing career with a tag. Developing an original, consistently written name is the primary act for a writer.
    The photos in Tag Town, dating back to the 60’s, introduce us to the origins of New York style graffiti.
    Tags and pieces share a common heritage and by understanding one, you can understand the other.
    For those who learn to read tags, a world of aesthetic expression and communication opens up. Tags are a universal language – the jazz of lettering. Tag Town also contains rare photos of work on the street by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf, artists whose tag-inspired work helped found the rapidly growing street art movement. The accompanying text is based on interviews with New York graffiti pioneers Blade, Part 1 and Snake 1.

    Martha Cooper has specialized in photographing urban art and architecture in New York City for thirty years.
