  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Berlin is still the city of writing of modern times. This book assembles 15 Berlin artists from a circle that originated in writing. They are linked by a long, partly shared experience in Berlin‘s public space. The reader is given an insight into the ideas and thoughts of a heretofore hermetic movement, whose effects are mainly revealed on the surface.
    Alongside an assortment of essays, they lead us on a journey away from the common city image, and into a remarkable landscape of outlooks and strata, spaces and dreams, visible and invisible cities.

  • 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).

  • Book of ZACK

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Graffiti, Tags, Throwups, Blockbuster, Wildstyles – die Begriffsvielfalt ist so bunt wie die Handschriften der Künstler.

    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.
