  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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)

  • Decades vol. 1 1990-2000

    54.00

    This first volume is the beginning of a trilogy of books (Vol. 2 2000-2010 / Vol. 3 2010-2020) presenting 30 years of graffiti in Berlin. With a selection from thousands of photos, a picture of the development of the graffiti subculture in Berlin emerges in an authentic way. In addition, a variety of personal texts by the authors give an intimate insight into their experiences and perspectives. On the one hand, these texts convey a very vivid picture of the life of the Berlin graffiti scene, on the other hand, they allow the reader to experience the Berlin of days gone by.

    The first issue portrays writers and crews between 1990 and 2000, with the fall of the Wall kicking off the graffiti boom in Berlin. In the aftermath, a huge adventure playground opened up for Berlin writers, with unresolved police courts and a sometimes disoriented adult world creating the ideal breeding ground for what is now probably the largest and most active graffiti scene in the world. The focus is on the application of graffiti on trains, which is also the subject of most of the pictures and texts in the book, but uncensored private pictures and graffiti on walls are also presented.

    This first volume contains portraits with many photos and personal texts or comments of the following graffiti authors and crews:

    BAS2, BOY, CATS, CHILL, CHIO, DEON, DISNE, DMB, DRUM, FOK, INKA, KEL, KMER, KAMEL, LYTE, ODEM, POET62, REW, RUZD, DSYER, SEKD, SHEK, SOME, STEAK, TFB, TOK, TORCH, TOWN, VDS, WEX and many more.

    Also included in the book are mixed chapters with hundreds of photos of many other graffiti writers and crews from the 90s.

  • 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.”

    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.

    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.

  • Doktor IDMTR – Escape From Reality Book

    35.00

    Ucieczka Od Rzeczywistości.
    The unique publication that takes you back in time. Explore unseen moments. Doktor IDMTR

    Escape From Reality is a sentimental trip into the past, to the nineties, in the company of the community passionate about aerosol art. Graffiti pieces, both on trains and walls, would for years be considered nothing more than distasteful eyesores lacking any form of design. The artists would be perceived as ignorant vandals. However, over the years the overview on street art has changed.

    The graffiti culture is deeply rooted in Polish reality, so it deserves to be documented and described. Escape From Reality is an authentic testimony of people connected to this art. It presents plenty of personal writings approachable for readers from all backgrounds – writings that portray street artists’ everyday lives and passion. All of these stories did really happen, but weren’t disclosed up to this point. This book will let them see the light of day.

    This publication aims to reach an audience of those interested in art and history of the nineties as well as those who want to immerse into the hermetic community of Polish and worldwide train writing. It will be a unique publication on the book market and an important event for the Polish graffiti community.

    Escape From Reality aims to present the community and culture of Polish graffiti at the turn of the century – in the nineties. On the 144 pages of the book, I will present an awe-inspiring collection of private photographs, personal reflections and stories that break age-old stereotypes and show a different, positive view on graffiti. This work will be an act of opening up by one of the most prolific Silesian graffiti writers of the late nineties, who currently does his art in the UK – Doktor MTR.

  • 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.
