Introtext of the artist
I often find myself reminiscing about graffiti. I have never particularly bothered about composing the classic blackbook, littered a plethora of sketches and photos. Quite early on I realised that by owning the aforementioned I was actually doing the police more of a favour than I was myself. Consequently, I adopted an approach of only compiling albums that purely focused on photos that spanned a certain period of significance in my journey. Those photos that fell outside that remit are safely stashed in a bunker somewhere inside the archetype photo bags typical amongst the graffiti fraternity. After my last analogue camera was retired to the furthest corner of my closet, any ambition I once possessed to file and categorise my vast collection of photos waned considerably anyway. With somewhat of a delay this book is my attempt to finally curate my entire collection of photos, which should hopefully give the reader a little insight into my development as a writer and display the personal milestones that I feel I have achieved. Creating a cross section of my personal segment within the graffiti universe, starting from the creation of my first piece onwards. Furthermore, it should show who I have taken this journey with and therefore will include passages where those of great significance in my journey divulge their side of the story.

„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.
