„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.

„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.

Die Graffiti-Kultur ist gut dokumentiert, aber ihre Geschichte wurde nie erzählt – zumindest nicht so. Akay startete einen Aufruf und interviewte jede Person am Tatort, um Rohdaten und unzuverlässige Erinnerungen zu sammeln, die für dieses Projekt notwenig waren. Das Ergebnis ist eine Zusammenstellung, die einige der legendärsten Momente der Graffiti-Geschichte aus Stockholm, Kopenhagen und Berlin beinhaltet und die selten offenbarten Erlebnisse von Menschen erzählt, die Nacht für Nacht auf der Suche nach Schwierigkeiten sind. Dies ist eine Sammlung von Geschichten darüber, dumme Dinge zu tun, gejagt zu werden und fast damit davon zu kommen.
Graffiti culture is well-documented, but its story has never been told – at least, not like this. Akay called up, chased down, and interviewed each person at the scene of the crime to collect raw facts and unreliable memories needed for this project. The result is a compilation that includes some of the most legendary moments in graffiti history from Stockholm, Copenhagen and Berlin and chronicles the rarely revealed experiences of individuals who are out night after night, not looking for trouble but getting into it anyway. This is a collection of stories about doing stupid things, getting chased, and almost getting away with it.
Stories from 1987 to 2011 including SLEDGE & AKAY, LAKE, ANGEST, KHAN, NECK, FEYS, AKIM, ASTMA, POMAC, UNIK, TERROR, MONKEY & KRIPOE, BIG BROTHER, KROPP, MATTHIAS & MISCHA, TELE & JENS, KOUCH, SKEN, ZOE, RUSKIG, ITSO, and KAOS.
