  • 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.

  • I am 1UP – Collectors Edition

    34.90

    The book I AM 1UP was first published in 2014 in an underground edition distributed by the artists themselves and was also published the following year by Publikat Publishing, thus making it accessible to a wider audience. Both editions have been out of print for many years and are traded at high prices on portals like Ebay. Due to the existing demand, the title has now been reissued again and will come out in 2021 as a collector's edition with precious gold foil stamping on the cover. In addition, each book comes with a small artist print in size 21×15. This add-on was produced on high-quality Munken Lynx Rough in heavy 300 gram quality and is also hand-signed by the 1UPs!

    There are 5 different variants of the print, which of the prints is in the shrink-wrapped books you see only when unpacking. To the actual book or the group ONE UNITED POWER itself one must lose at this point probably no more, the Berlin writercrew from Berlin did many spectacular actions in recent years and have thereby internationally received a great media attention. And even away from train depots or rooftops, the guys have already taken a successful path towards the gallery and now enrich the urban art world in this area.

    With this photo book you get an insight into their work from the years before 2014, as well as a small art print for your wall!

    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.

  • 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…

  • 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).

  • 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.

    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.

    25.00

    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.

    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.

  • EX IT – Graphic Novel

    25.00

    „Und dann war da blaues Licht, ich weiß nicht, wir kamen ja gerade erst die Böschung wieder hinauf. Mit farbverschmierter Hose und noch Schweiß im Gesicht von der körperlichen Arbeit kamen die da direkt auf uns zugerollt. Nachdem wir unser Zeug schon vorher losgeworden waren, haben wir versucht, die Nerven zu behalten. Steigen da zwei Uniformierte aus und fragen: Entschuldigt, aber habt ihr da im Tunnel wen Malen sehen (macht mit dem Arm eine Bewegung, als ob der Bulle wüsste, wie man eine Dose hält)? Wir so: nein nein, tut uns leid, haben hier nur schnell ein Päuschen eingelegt und gechilled. Während der andere Bulle an den Uralt-Bildern des Tunnels vor uns schnuppern ging, haben wir Ihnen einen schönen Tag gewünscht, uns entspannt ins Auto gesetzt und sind losgefahren.“

    In hartem, virtuosen Schwarz-Weiß zeichnet Rubens Bugatti eine Geschichte von nächtlichen Streifzügen. Es geht um das Getrieben-Sein zur Aneignung urbaner Nicht-Orte und die Auseinandersetzung mit den langen Armen des Gesetzes, subsumiert in verschiedenen Episoden dieser Graphic Novel.
    Schnell muss der Portagonist arbeiten, flink und hellwach muss er sein, immer bereit zum abrupten Abbruch und zur Flucht. Was bleibt, sind Umrisse und Farben, Notizen und Zeichen, Botschaften, deren ganze Kraft erst nach getaner Arbeit und dem Aufgehen der Sonne sichtbar werden oder gleich ungesehen im Buff landen.
    Graffiti ist l’art pour l’art. Egal ob einsames Leben oder in Gesellschaft, im Dunkel der nächtlichen Stadtkulisse ist man nie ganz allein. Die Erlebnisse mischen sich mit surrealen Begegnungen und Begebenheiten die nicht anders als visuell erzählbar sind.

  • Buio Dentro (Nuova Ed.)

    25.00

    Buio Dentro is a foray into the darkest side of Milanese graffiti, the bad side, the side that has nothing to do with the quiet Sundays in the Hall of Fame nor with the street artist of the moment. In the Instagram era, Corrado Piazza stops time and brings back to life the golden age Milan, exhuming from the subway manholes the most important names of the Milanese scene from 1987 to 1998. An incredible collection of images and testimonies, mostly unpublished, from the voice of those who lived those years and never forgot them. Without filters, without censorship. Unlike the countless publications that preceded it, Buio Dentro focuses exclusively on bombing the subsoil, in that network of tunnels that constitutes the metropolitan network of Milan. A romantic project that aims to tell, in the most complete and reliable way, the roughest face of an unforgettable and unrepeatable season of aerosol writing in Milan.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.
