  • Protecting Art in the Street

    14.90

    There has recently been a sharp increase in cases where corporations have been sued by street and graffiti artists because their artworks had been used and exploited without the artists’ authorisation, for example in advertising campaigns, as backdrops in promotional videos, or as decorating elements of products. This trend shows and confirms that these forms of art are vulnerable. They are actually more exposed to unauthorised exploitation (and destruction as well) than works of fine art, because they are placed in the public eye.
    Protecting Art in the Street explains, with words and images, how copyright laws apply to street art and graffiti, and how they can be of help to creators within these artistic communities. Knowledge about these issues does matter. There has recently been a spike in legal actions or complaints against corporations and individuals that have tried to exploit commercially street artworks without the artists’ consent; and more importantly without sharing with them any profit. Also, legal actions have been brought by street artists to fight destruction of their pieces.
    By adopting a simple language, Protecting Art in the Street constitutes an easy-to-understand guide aimed at navigating street artists and graffiti writers through otherwise difficult and intricate legal issues concerning the protection of their artistic outputs.

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 In addition to the 15 issues reprinted in A4 format, there is a special unpublished edition dedicated to Repo, with all the best of its production from 1994 to 2014.

  • 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…

  • 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 AVANTGARDE – MOSES & TAPS

    59.90

    VERSANDKOSTENFREI INNERHALB VON ÖSTERREICH

    Neun Jahre nach ihrem legendären Buch INTERNATIONAL TOPSPRAYER™, das längst vergriffen und mittlerweile für hunderte Euro gehandelt wird, kommt aus dem Hause MOSES & TAPS™ ein doppelt so dicker Backstein aus Papier: GRAFFITI AVANTGARDE™

    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.

  • Rockin‘ It Suckers (10th Anniversary Edition)

    28.90

    The inside story of the crew that has kept graffiti alive in New York City for the past 20 years!

    After being out of print for years – ROCKIN’ IT SUCKERS is back in a limited 10th Anniversary Edition!

    A classic graffiti book is once agin available – with additional text and original cover.

    Some call it art others vandalism. For the members of the infamous RIS crew the label doesn’t matter. ROCKIN’ IT SUCKERS is the story of New York City’s infamous RIS crew in their heyday.

    New York in the late 80s: A city tormented by crack and violent crime. At the same time the golden age of hip hop was in full bloom, and despite the violence some found room for creativity.
    At this time a group of kids got together to taste the last of the city’s painted subway trains, just in time to experience a new era in New York’s graffiti history — The authorities decided to clean up the city and a zero-tolerance policy towards graffiti was instituted. While many of the city’s graffiti writers quit, the RIS crew was determined to keep the trains colorful and decided to wage their own war with the city. As a result, they took over New York with style, and along the way influenced graffiti writers long way outside the five boroughs.
    The crack down from the authorities didn’t only trigger the RIS crew to write more, it also made them come up with faster techniques and develop their styles, all done with the crews’ characteristic arrogance and humorous touch. Soon they became one of the world’s most important and influential graffiti crews.
