  • CES53 Book

    70.00

    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

    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.

  • International Topsprayer – Expired – MOSES & TAPS

    49.90

    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.”

  • Edward Nightingale – You can’t always win

    39.90

    About failure in graffiti

    ​In November 2019 a group of friends traveled to Tashkent in Uzbekistan to paint the local subway system. Their lack of chance is captured in this book.

    Edward’s most emotional and intimate publication to this day is a visual essay about failure in graffiti.

    As trainwriting happens to be illegal, trains often are protected against unwanted visitors. With high-security levels, success is not always guaranteed.
    Sometimes there can be even a complete lack of it.
    Every graffiti writer experienced those moments. But yet it is a topic hardly talked about.
    Out of a writer's perspective, nothing happens.
    Follow four friends around remote areas of Tashkent, trying their luck with the subway for a week.
    But nothing happens.

  • Still Alive – Wearing Sunglasses at Night

    39.90

    Zurück zur Jahrtausendwende: Auf einem Union-Pacific-Güterzug durch Texas fahren die gleichen Buchstabenkombinationen wie auf einem SBB-Wagen durch die Schweizer Alpen. Es sind die Buchstaben von Still Alive.
    Still Alive – ein Weltenbummler mit Spraydosen im Gepäck, aber ohne Google Maps in der Tasche, auf der Suche nach Abenteuern und neuen Orten, mit wechselnden Pseudonymen im Repertoire. Auf erfrischende Art und Weise hinterfragt sein Style die gängigen Codes der damaligen Graffiti-Subkultur. Deren Regeln werden bewusst ignoriert, mit dem Ziel Aufmerksamkeit zu erregen, ohne sich um das Urteil anderer zu scheren.
    Mit Hilfe alter Tagebuch-Einträge und analogen Fotos wird im Buch „Still Alive – Wearing Sunglasses at Night – Diary of a Graffiti Writer“ Still Alive's Werdegang als Graffiti Writer rekonstruiert. Die zahlreichen Bilder und Geschichten nehmen uns mit auf Abenteuer von New York über San Francisco bis Barcelona und Bukarest und zeigen auf, warum er einer der wichtigsten Akteure der Schweizer Graffiti-Szene wurde und Bern auf die Graffiti-Landkarte setzte.

  • Graffiti a New York

    24.90

    Andrea Nelli was in his twenties when he went to New York for the first time. He saw BIG-O 116, EVIL ERF 14, RAT FINK 131, SUPER KOOL 223 written on the walls. In the beginning he thought of them as strange ideograms but he was even more fascinated to find out that the inscriptions were actually names. He decided to archive this phenomenon by taking pictures and to make it the subject of the thesis for his degree on Literature. He got in touch with many cliques of writers that open him the doors of New York.
    Big names, as COCO 144, were his guide. Graffiti a New York by Andrea Nelli is the re-edition of one of first books about Graffiti Writing, published for the first time in 1978.
    This book conserves the original text, precious and rare document of an unthinkable research for that period. It contributes to the historical memory of Graffiti Writing with amazing pictures about the styles and the first tags of Manhattan Heights.
    More than 100 pictures of Names and historical pieces photographed by Andrea Nelli accompany the text, true in the form and in the content.
    Graffiti a New York is a true witness about Graffiti phenomenon in his early years of birth.

    A unique work. Verbal and visually lucid madness. A supersonic voyage between loneliness and alienation in contemporary society.

Prepare yourselves for a surprise: even if he finds himself in a trainwarehouse or sitting at a table with a pen in hand, Frank Veleno is always doing something new. And it concerns us all.

  • Rae Martini – 24 Carat Dirt

    35.00

    Rae Martini, a prominent figure on the international street scene, comes face to face with painting and artistic expression for the first time in the early 90s. For over twenty years he serves as one of the greatest exemplars of the Italian Graffiti movement. Along with only a few other artists, he has managed to concretize his artistic development. With so much graffiti on streets and trains in so many European cities, he pursued an artistic career dedicated to the world of paint and canvas. Just like railroad tracks, these two parallel domains intertwine and influence each other with the aesthetics and experiences of two worlds, distant, yet close; hardly any artists from the graffiti scene are so committed to their work and beliefs that they are capable of bringing urban setting and street culture into the world of fine art galleries. Over the last two decades, Rae Martini has been able to dedicate himself to these two worlds using a common starting point: sketching on paper.

    Taking Over was, for almost 15 years, the Italian Free Graff Zine of reference, strictly printed in black and white, because when the letters rock, the choice of colours is secondary. This collection is dedicated to Roberto Malpensa, aka Repo, one of the founders of Taking Over and a true Italian pioneer. From the first productions in Xerographic printing, to the latest releases in high definition Offset, the leitmotif has always been „Keeping it Real“, without compromise. The book contains the complete collection, from 2002 to 2015. In addition to the 15 issues reprinted in A4 format, there is a special unpublished edition dedicated to Repo, with all the best of its production from 1994 to 2014.

  • Abused Beloved Metros – Characters on World Wide Subways

    29.90

    Metros malen, die Königsdisziplin… bedeutet das Abhaken vieler Systeme, und normalerweise hat man nicht viel Zeit dafür. Niker (ABM) ist in den letzten 3 Jahren über Kontinente gereist, um zu zeigen, dass man auch trotz manchmal kurzer Zeit Character auf Metros malen kann. Rodik (QMS) beschäftigte sich lange mit dem U-Bahn-System in Mexiko-City. Es wurden viele Strickleitern gebaut und Winkelschleifer zum brennen gebracht. Karma (PSE) zeigt uns, dass es nicht immer Dosen sein müssen. Er malt seine Metros vorzugsweise mit Pinseln und Acrylfarbe. Clasher (ABM) nimmt uns mit in den Berliner Untergrund wie eine Tunnelratte. Außerdem gibt es noch Stuff von Kezdy (PSE), TBG, EQT und die RADICALS zeigen euch nochmal Metros in Ostdeutscher Manier . Ein Bonus Part gibt Einblicke vom Stadtbahnsystem im Ruhrgebiet. Und vieles vieles mehr…

    GRAFFITI AVANTGARDE™ gibt auf 544 Seiten mit über 2000 Fotos in zehn Kapiteln und einer Vielzahl an spannenden und hintergründigen Texten einen tiefen Einblick in MOSES & TAPS™ breites Schaffen als Graffiti-Künstler seit 2011. Das Werk zeigt, wie ihnen der Spagat zwischen Trainbombing und dem Dasein als akzeptierte Künstler gelungen ist und erklärt, warum diese beiden Welten kein Gegensatzpaar sein müssen.

    Den Anfang der Monografie macht ein Interview von MOSES & TAPS™ durch die Kriminologin Ike, in dem der Frage nachgegangen wird, was die Graffiti Avantgarde eigentlich ausmacht, wer sie ist, welche Ziele sie hat und was sie antreibt.

    Dem TOPSPRAYER™-Kapitel, in welchem uns MOSES & TAPS™ über diverse Zwischenstationen auf Zügen von Russland in die USA führen, folgt das SPLASH™-Kapitel, in dem man lernt, auf welchen Orten und Unorten man als Writer bunte Spuren mit Spraydosen hinterlassen kann ohne ein Fatcap und Buchstaben benutzen zu müssen.

    Anschliessend wird das Zepter an ALIAS™ übergeben, dessen vorgeblich 1001 Züge in 999 Tagen auf 176 Seiten durch seine Storys und die Actionfotos von Edward Nightingale abgerundet werden.

    In SCRATCHITI™ zeigt MOSES™, warum er Glasscheiben nur bemalt um sie zu säubern, wie er sie aus dem Yard ins Museum und wieder zurück bringt und warum er Micky Maus hasst.

    Im Kapitel CORPORATE IDENTITY™ dechiffriert Robert Kaltenhäuser dann, wie sich über MOSES & TAPS™ CI-Codes alle Kapitel verbinden lassen, warum gelb-blau besser als Banksy funktioniert und was hinter TM steckt.

    Mit IMAGE OF GRAFFITI™ macht TAPS™ deutlich, warum Graffiti illegal sein muss und wie man trotzdem ein Abbild davon auf Leinwänden erschaffen kann.

    Während sich das Kapitel SCHÖPFERISCHE ZERSTÖRUNG™ mit der Vielschichtigkeit von MOSES & TAPS™ ́ Arbeiten auseinandersetzt, die sich in collagenartigen Bildern und Installationen ausdrücken, widmet sich der Teil KONZEPT-VANDALISMUS ihren einzigartigen konzeptionellen Arbeiten auf Trains – und manchmal auch den Wänden darin.

    Zum Abschluss erklären und illustrieren MOSES & TAPS™ in zwei separaten Kapiteln ihre ganz persönliche Sicht auf die Entwicklung ihrer Styles.

  • Glorious Attitude FRA32

    35.00

    Fra32 ist einer der produktivsten italienischen Graffiti-Writer.
    Seit den 90er Jahren hat er in ganz Italien und im Ausland gearbeitet und sich als eine führende Figur in der internationalen Graffiti-Szene etabliert.
    Sein einzigartiger Stil hat Generationen von Künstlern beeinflusst, die in ihm eine ebenso grundlegende wie konstante Quelle der Inspiration gefunden haben.
    Glorious Attitude bringt seine zwanzigjährige expressive Entwicklung ans Licht und enthüllt seine obsessive Stilsuche, seine Beharrlichkeit in der Malerei seit seiner Jugend und seine beharrliche Produktion, während er Generationen von Writern durchquerte, Crews gründete und sich mit den wichtigsten Namen der Writer-Szene anfreundete.

    In diesem Buch zeichnet der Journalist Chris Gibson Fra32s künstlerischen Weg, beginnend mit seinem Debüt – seinem ersten Tag im Jahr 1994 – und erzählt seine Geschichte bis heute, wobei er auch die soziale und politische Kulisse Italiens der 90er Jahre beschreibt.
    Das Buch ist in vier Abschnitte unterteilt, die jeweils von einem anderen Standpunkt aus erzählt werden, um eine möglichst vollständige Sicht des Protagonisten zu ermöglichen.
    Die anfängliche Untersuchung des Journalisten wird begleitet von den Beiträgen von etwa zwanzig Writern, die Fra32 nahestehen und die ihre Freundschaft mit dem Künstler erzählen und ein menschlicheres und weniger formales Bild von ihm beschreiben.
    In den anderen Kapiteln werden spezifische Themen behandelt, die mit der Welt des Graffiti-Writings zu tun haben und in der die Texte des Protagonisten selbst die Fotografien ergänzen.
    Fra32 ist ein Blackbook, in dem die Geschichten und das Fotoarchiv (das mehr als 270 Bilder umfasst) ineinander greifen.

     

    Fra32 is one of the most prolific Italian graffiti writers.
    Since the ’90s he has worked throughout Italy as well as abroad establishing himself as a leading figure in the international graffiti scene.
    His unique style has contaminated and influenced generations of artists who have found in him a source of inspiration, fundamental and constant as well.
    Glorious Attitude brings to light his twenty-year expressive evolution, revealing his obsessive stylistic search, perseverance in painting since he was very young, and persistent production, while he was crossing generations of writers, founding crews, and becoming friends with the most important names of the writing scene.

    In this book journalist Chris Gibson draws Fra32’s artistic path, starting from his debut – his first tag in 1994 – and retracing his story until today, describing also Italy’s social and political backdrop of the ’90s.
    The book is divided into four sections, each one narrated from a different point of view in order to display the most complete vision possible of the protagonist.
    The journalist’s initial inquiry is accompanied by the contributions of about twenty writers who are close to Fra32 and who recount their friendship with the artist, donating a more human and less formal image of him.
    The other chapters examine specific themes related to the world of graffiti writing in which texts written by the protagonist himself supplement the photographs.
    Fra32 is a black book where the stories and the photographic archive (which includes more than 270 images) intertwine to give the reader a volume where the figure of one of the most international graffiti writers emerges.
