  • 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 In addition to the 15 issues reprinted in A4 format, there is a special unpublished edition dedicated to Repo, with all the best of its production from 1994 to 2014.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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    39.90

    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.

  • Edward Nightingale – You can’t always win

    39.90

    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.

  • 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.

    Auf 288 Seiten erwarten den Betrachter großformatige Hochglanzfotos, der bisweilen unzulänglich dokumentierten Trainwriting-Kultur, aus der südlichsten Provinz des Alpenlandes. Es gilt diese kurzlebige Kunstform zu konservieren und den bislang unbekannten und „internetscheuen“ Protagonisten eine Plattform zu bieten. Provinz Schmierer zeigt eine kleine Auswahl atmosphärischer Bilder – über einer Dekade Trainwriting aus Kärnten.

  • 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.
