  • 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.

  • Taking Over The Book

    30.00

    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 In addition to the 15 issues reprinted in A4 format, there is a special unpublished edition dedicated to Repo, with all the best of its production from 1994 to 2014.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Graffiti an der Line in Basel 1985–1990 (2nd edition)

    55.00

    1985 gaben sich Jugendliche Fantasienamen wie «Scorpio», «Steve» oder «Zois» und sprayten auf die Wände der Line, die damals gerade fertig gebaut war, erste Buchstaben. Das war der Startschuss für die Graffiti Bewegung in Basel an der Line. Was die Jugendlichen, die sich selber «Homeboys» und «Flygirls» nannten, damals genau angetrieben hat, ist im Rückblick schwer zu sagen.

    Man sieht vielen Pieces aus dieser frühen Zeit ihre Leichtigkeit noch immer an. Es wurde gesprayt ohne zu überlegen, wohin das alles führen wird. Und man hatte Platz zum Ausprobieren. Die Line war ein perfekter Ort für Graffiti: Kilometerlange Wände, mitten in der Stadt und trotzdem ein Unort aus Beton, Gleisschotter und Schienen. Ausser Sprayer und Bahnarbeiter hält sich da niemand auf. Tagsüber, wenn die Züge nach Basel SBB ein- und ausfahren, präsentieren sich die Wände als perfektes Medium zur Unterhaltung der Reisenden.

    Das Buch dokumentiert möglichst objektiv die ersten 5 Jahre der Line. Das Buch beinhaltet über 500 Abbildungen die nach Standort und Schicht zugeordnet wurden. Auch gibt das Buch einen kleinen Ausblick in die 90er Jahre an der Line. Zudem sind einige Texte die in diesem Zeitraum über die Line publiziert wurden enthalten.

    2. überarbeitete Auflage
    mit 16 zusätzlichen Seiten
    Offsetdruck
    Fadenheftung
    Text über die Geschichte der Line (nur auf Deutsch)

  • 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 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.

  • Like Lipstick Traces

    29.90

    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).

  • On The Run Books 14 – How & Nosm The Brazil Diaries (Hardcover)

    29.90

    How&Nosm – The Brazil Diaries is an intimate look at the Perre twins’ art explorations in Brazil. European graffiti artists and muralists residing in New York City, How&Nosm found that living in a society whose strict laws deny writers their right to self-expression meant they had to satisfy their creative appetite elsewhere. The solution was to travel to places with a greater understanding and tolerance for graffiti and street art. These trips were liberating and soon transformed from a desire, to a routine, to an addiction. They have painted in more than 60 countries thus far, with Brazil in particular proving to be the perfect playground for this ever-active duo.

    With a limited color palette in hand, How&Nosm create striking murals laced with social commentary. Their signature black, white and red intricate patterns, stark line work and stylized forms heighten the intensity of the message.

  • On The Run Books 16 – Hall Of Fame New York City (Hardcover)

    29.90

    New York City is the birthplace of graffiti style writing. It is the place where young writers first began to transform letters from simple tags on a wall to elaborate masterpieces of colorful and camoflauged letters embellished with characters that depicted friends and heroes alike.

    By the 1980s the artwork was quickly destroyed by authorities and the artists seeking to preserve some of their works took hold of schoolyards around the city to paint grander works. It was a no-nonsense approach to save their art form and spread their fame to the local kids. The most famous of these schoolyards is located in East Harlem on 106th street and Park Avenue and it became known as the Hall of Fame.

    At first the Hall of Fame was established to bring together the best artists in the city and have them paint in the same schoolyard supplanting the number 5 train as the showcase place for the best graffiti art in New York. Over the years as the word spread artists from around the city would sneak in and leave their work at night in this unsanctioned museum. From Skeme, Dez, and Daze in the early 1980s to Vulcan, Jon One, and Dome in the late 1980s to Part, Ezo, and TDS rejuvenating the schoolyard with style in the 1990s to TC5 (West, Dash, Psycho, Wane, Cope2, etc.), TDS (Flite, Part, Noc167, Serve, T-Kid170), TATS (Bio, BG183, Nicer, How, Nosm, Sen2) crews tight productions in the 2000s to the writers that travel to New York to paint there today this book documents the exciting artwork that was created in a small obscure school in Harlem that became known as the legendary Hall of Fame.

    Join us on this artistic retrospective of the famous and important New York landmark, the Graffiti Hall of Fame.

  • Paris Characters

    39.90

    The Paris Characters book breaks with the general opinion that graffiti fans and journalists have that photos of works and walls are enough, that graffiti artists have nothing to say about their work, their career or their art.

    Mode2, Jay, N°6, Lokiss or Alex, among others, agreed to answer questions in interviews and allowed Karim Boukercha to include numerous unpublished works in this book: Around 600 illustrations and more than forty interviews have found their way into this more than entertaining book.

From the capital of Rumania to the Chicago subway, passing through Rome and Milan that this time are represented by two special members of the scene, Brus and Erpes, so to have quality and quantity, bombing and style. We then have the photos of the famous Kings of Green, the party jam held in summer that every one looks forward to, this has also become an environment project that participates at a competition called MercinTreno2011, that has the acknowledgement of the Italian President Giorgio Napolitano. This year like the past ones we’ve evolved some of the best writers around, both foreigners and Italian, we made a real documentary, different form the usual 30 minutes filming, but “unique” graffiti stories.

  • The Art of Writing Your Name

    34.90

    Die hohe, altehrwürdige Kunst der Kalligrafie ist nun schon eine Weile in der Graffiti- und Street-Art-Szene angekommen und mit eben dieser verschmolzen. So wurde das Genre des Calligraffiti geboren und natürlich liefern wir euch ein umfangreiches Werk dazu: das The Art of Writing Your Name Buch.

    Diese wunderschöne Kunst der Visualisierung des Wortes wird euch hier in Bild und Text von über 35 Künstlergrößen aus mehr als 3 Generationen und unzähligen Nationen nähergebracht. Darunter Artists wie Chaz Bojorquez, CRYPTIK oder JonOne. Einen wichtigen und großen Part hat auch der niederländische Künstler SHOE, der 2007 ein Calligraffiti-Projekt begann und mit riesengroßen Kalligrafie-Werken die Aufmerksamkeit auf dieses Subgenre zog.

    Wie logisch doch eigentlich diese Verbindung ist, die Kunst des Schreibens (Kalligrafie) mit der modernen, zeitgenössischen Kunst seinen Namen zu schreiben (Graffiti) zu vereinen. Und natürlich bekommt ihr hier wieder viele unterschiedliche Styles anhand von hochauflösenden, perfekt geshooteten Fotos aufs Auge. Auch in puncto Hilfsmittel wurden hier keine Grenzen gesetzt und so ist vom Riesenpinsel bis zum handelsüblichen Besen alles erlaubt.

    Ob Straße oder Galerie, Beton oder Leinwand – auch die Untergründe könnten kaum vielseitiger sein. Lasst euch inspirieren, kommt ins Staunen und taucht in die bunte, verzierte Welt der urbanen, neuzeitlichen Kalligrafie ein! Für alle Künstler und Liebhaber, die am Puls der Zeit bleiben wollen, ist dieses 288-seitige Buch ein absolutes Muss.
