    Learn how to draw graffiti letters!

    Graffiti for Beginners is an easy-to-follow introduction that presents you with the basics behind graffiti lettering.

    The two funky yet classic graffiti alphabets created by experienced graffiti artist Mega gives you the opportunity to learn a basic graffiti style, as well as a more advanced wild style.

    Each of the alphabet’s 26 letters has its own spread where the building blocks of the letter are carefully displayed
    next to the specified space for you to practice, along with illustrations of how the letters can be used in different words and names.

    In addition to the letters, you will find examples of characteristic elements used in graffiti such as 3D or shades to add depth to the letters, or arrows, stars, bubbles, highlights and shines to make the piece stand out.

    Graffiti for Beginners is the fundamental guide for you to learn how to master the alphabet with style and finesse, letter by letter, until you are able to put together complicated words and messages, adding the coloring of your own choice.

    Learning graffiti has never been easier or more fun!

    Graffiti for Beginners suits all ages and is a great tool for advertisers, home stylers, school teachers, kids and creative adults alike.

  • 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.

  • Getting Caught

    11.00

    Die Graffiti-Kultur ist gut dokumentiert, aber ihre Geschichte wurde nie erzählt – zumindest nicht so. Akay startete einen Aufruf und interviewte jede Person am Tatort, um Rohdaten und unzuverlässige Erinnerungen zu sammeln, die für dieses Projekt notwenig waren. Das Ergebnis ist eine Zusammenstellung, die einige der legendärsten Momente der Graffiti-Geschichte aus Stockholm, Kopenhagen und Berlin beinhaltet und die selten offenbarten Erlebnisse von Menschen erzählt, die Nacht für Nacht auf der Suche nach Schwierigkeiten sind. Dies ist eine Sammlung von Geschichten darüber, dumme Dinge zu tun, gejagt zu werden und fast damit davon zu kommen.

    Graffiti culture is well-documented, but its story has never been told – at least, not like this. Akay called up, chased down, and interviewed each person at the scene of the crime to collect raw facts and unreliable memories needed for this project. The result is a compilation that includes some of the most legendary moments in graffiti history from Stockholm, Copenhagen and Berlin and chronicles the rarely revealed experiences of individuals who are out night after night, not looking for trouble but getting into it anyway. This is a collection of stories about doing stupid things, getting chased, and almost getting away with it.

    Stories from 1987 to 2011 including SLEDGE & AKAY, LAKE, ANGEST, KHAN, NECK, FEYS, AKIM, ASTMA, POMAC, UNIK, TERROR, MONKEY & KRIPOE, BIG BROTHER, KROPP, MATTHIAS & MISCHA, TELE & JENS, KOUCH, SKEN, ZOE, RUSKIG, ITSO, and KAOS.

  • 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.

  • ODEM – On The Run

    14.99

    ODEM: ON THE RUN zeichnet den atemlosen Aufstieg und jähen Fall des Berliner Graffiti-Sprühers ODEM nach, der zunächst als kleiner Tagger sein Kürzel in jede U-Bahn setzte und als Crew-Mitglied erste Pieces versuchte, dann Teil einer Jugendszene wurde, die sich täglich im U-Bahnhof Friedrichstraße traf, um schließlich als King der Szene international bekannt und wegen seiner Skrupellosigkeit gefürchtet zu werden.

    ODEM: ON THE RUN ist der authentische Bericht eines Großstadtjugendlichen am Anfang der Neunzigerjahre. Gleichermaßen faszinierend wie schockierend, macht dies Buch, die Begeisterung der Jugendlichen für Graffiti verständlich und beleuchtet zugleich in aller Härte die Schattenseiten einer Szene, in der Spaß und Action ebenso alltäglich sind wie Gewalt und Kriminalität, Alkohol und Drogen.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Forms of rockin

    25.90

    „The idea of style and competing for the best style is the key to all forms of rockin‘.“ – Style Wars, 1983.

    Are subcultures, like graffiti, floating free in their own space, or are they connected to the rest of society? In Forms of Rockin’, graffiti styles for the first time are connected to graphic design and other popular culture expressions such as music, fashion, photography, industrial design and movies. Anssi Arte analyses some of the most powerful visual symbols of the 1970s, 80s and 90s and compares design, display typefaces and graffiti styles. The visual styles of James Brown, Blade Runner, the Memphis group and grunge music all appear together with classic fonts and graffiti writers.
    The clear yet analytical narrative and carefully crafted visualizations make it appealing to both graphic design aficionados as well as graffiti enthusiasts. But Forms of Rockin’ is more than that. This is a must for everybody interested in contemporary popular culture and design history.

    Forms of Rockin‘ traces and defines the stylistic conventions in graffiti letterforms that have become iconic and globally acknowledged ideals. From the early New York tags to the mid-1990s ugly-fresh styles of Scandinavia, Forms of Rockin’ tells the story of how popular culture and graffiti styles influences each other.

    Anssi Arte (b. 1981) is a Helsinki-based graphic designer specialized in visual identities and brand architecture. He has a formal (MA) education in graphic design from the Aalto University of Arts, Design and Architecture.
    Besides graphic design he is a graffiti enthusiast since childhood, specialized in studying and practising the traditional European and Scandinavian letterforms and aesthetics.

    Das Buch zur „Takeover“-Ausstellung im Wien Museum

    Oft unerlaubt, manchmal beauftragt angebracht, sind Graffiti und Street Art heute nicht mehr aus dem Stadtbild wegzudenken. Sie sorgen für Aufsehen im öffentlichen Raum und hinterfragen unser Verständnis von Mitgestaltung und Teilhabe.

    Oft unerlaubt, manchmal beauftragt angebracht, sind Graffiti und Street Art heute nicht mehr aus dem Stadtbild wegzudenken. Sie sorgen für Aufsehen im öffentlichen Raum und hinterfragen unser Verständnis von Mitgestaltung und Teilhabe. Lässt sich Street Art, per Definition auf der Straße zu finden, glaubwürdig im Museum zeigen? Durch den geplanten Umbau des Wien Museums bot sich die Gelegenheit, in einem facettenreichen Projekt dieser Frage nachzuspüren. Das Gebäude und sein Gelände wurden zur kreativen Spielfläche für KünstlerInnen und BesucherInnen. Dabei wurde erstmals die Wiener Szene in ihrer Vielfalt und Ambivalenz vorgestellt. Die entstandenen Werke sind temporär und werden im Zuge des Umbaus wieder zerstört. Was bleibt, ist dieses Buch, das die situative Atmosphäre während “Takeover” spiegelt und 40 namhafte Protagonist_innen und ihre vielfältigen Werke, Stile und Ausdrücke, die maßgeblich zur Transformation des Museums beigetragen haben, vorstellt.

    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.

  • 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).

  • 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…

  • 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.

    Die erste Schicht Graffiti in München

    München 1983, die Wände sind unberührt. Politische Sprüche und Liebesbotschaften zieren vereinzelt das Grau. Plötzlich aber tauchen abstrakte Zeichen, seltsame Figuren und kryptische Buchstaben- Kombinationen auf, von denen niemand weiß, was sie bedeuten sollen. Sie verbreiten sich im Stadtbild und markieren den Beginn der Graffiti- Bewegung in Deutschland und Europa. Die Fotografien aus den Archiven des Strafverteidigers Konrad Kittl und des Volkskunde-Professors Peter Kreuzer zeigen die erste Schicht Graffiti in München: Versuche mit Farbe und Form, ohne Vorwissen, Kategorien und Regeln.

    the first layer of graffiti in Munich

    It is 1983 in Munich, the walls are gray and bare, marked only by a few political slogans and the odd declaration of love. Then, suddenly, abstract sign language, peculiar characters and cryptic combinations of letters begin to appear, their meaning a puzzle to all who chance upon them. The pieces begin to spread across the city and mark the start of the graffiti movement in Germany and throughout Europe. The photographic archives of attorney Konrad Kittl and Anthropology academic Peter Kreuzer reveal the first layer of graffiti in Munich: experiments with color and form, unprecedented and free from rules or preconceptions.
