  • ROGER – Never be late

    25.00

    Writing the same name for over 25 years seems to lead into two possible scenarios: writers achieve a kind of individual peak of style and piecing, which is now constantly repeated with minor changes. Or the second, and by far more rare occurring one: writers who continuously work on their never-changing letters, facing the challenge to let their name look new, surprising and vivid with every latest piece.

    In NEVER BE LATE, prime example of the latter category ROGER, presents a selection of 55 pieces from 2006 till today. Full color panels in Vienna and hall of fame burners in Berlin, abandoned industrial black-and-white pieces and S-Bahn candy colored quicks or dirty subways combined with perfect traffic shots in bright sunlight: these opposing couples hint the variety of surfaces he uses while at the same time each double page demonstrates the artist’s sheer endless ways of reshaping his name.

    The remaining pages show hundreds of name and crew sketchings. Unlike other publications of the last years in which sketches are presented as perfect drafts for later pieces, you can follow ROGER working on ideas which sometimes need several attempts to become final outlines. While the pieces, as painted in public space, are intended to reach a broad audience of spectators, having access to these authentic sketches feels like a clandestine look into an intimate diary of style.

    Analyzing ROGER’s scribbles you will find yourself checking the books’ first half again and again for possible executions of his ideas, but also wondering if you might have seen the product in traffic, online or if they have ever been realized at all. Don’t miss the chance to get the first print publication ever by one of Berlins top notch writers!

  • 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.

Prepare yourselves for a surprise: even if he finds himself in a trainwarehouse or sitting at a table with a pen in hand, Frank Veleno is always doing something new. And it concerns us all.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Containing 225 pages of photos taken in metropolitan cities all around the world, Phil America immersed himself into this culture and documented it over the course of ten years. In these never before seen photos, we are taken into a dangerous and private world that most are unable to ever witness: deep into subway tunnels, over fences, under surveillance cameras and behind sensors.

  • Buio Dentro

    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.

  • 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…

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Wall Writers – Graffiti in its Innocence

    49.90

    The Wall Writers companion hardbound book explores graffiti’s eruption into mainstream society in the period of social turmoil in the late 1960s and early ‘70s, and takes a closer look not only at early graffiti’s place on the wall but its place in the culture of the time. More comprehensive than any other book on the subject, Wall Writers explores not only early graffiti writing itself but the writers creating it, and the culture that drove them to write — be it a need to rebel against the government, to pass a message, or simply be recognized by society. Hundreds of images of everything from spray paint advertisements to commercial greeting cards to images of buildings completely covered in spray painted monikers are included, and reveal the context of the beginnings of a movement that would eventually grow to “transform city life, public transit, public art, and ultimately visual art the world over.” Includes interviews and profiles of some of the most prolific writers of the time, including TAKI 183, CORNBREAD, and dozens more.

  • 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.
