  8. Action Painting

    216 pages. Paperback. The works presented in this book no longer exist - they are all gone for good, washed off the sides of the trains, sometimes hours after they were first created.

    Kristian Kutschera presents the most comprehensive collection of art ever created on Europe's transit systems, with highlights of the past 25 years. Her task was not unlike a treasure hunt, involving a series of conspiratorial meetings and the subsequent arrival of mysterious, unmarked packages.

    Inspired by the iconic 1980s book, SUBWAY ART, the painting of trains in Europe continues to flourish. Action Painting gives profound insight into the adventures, techniques, ethics and passion behind this amazing and dangerous art form.

  12. Alphabeatz Graffiti Alphabets from A to Z

    Graffiti writing was born in the streets of Philadelphia in the late 1960s. But it was in New York in the early 1970s that it became a full-fledged urban art, gradually taking over the landscape of the city, from its walls to its subway cars. In these years when this art form was emerging, graffiti pioneers laid its foundations through the constant game they played with the twenty-six letters of the alphabet, which they distorted and highlighted in the tags that they painted on walls. In the first section of this book, Woshe recounts the incredible story of the birth of this culture. He then offers us a detailed examination of the twenty-six letters of the alphabet, their structure and the ways in which graffiti writers have made them evolve. This study is enriched with a wealth of illustrations and examples of the customizations that artists add to their letters. At the end of the volume, ten of the international scene’s most talented graffiti creators answer Woshe’s questions about matters that include their practice, their relationship with letters and their backgrounds.

    Interviews to: BATES (Copenhague, Denmark); DARCO (Paris, France); DEMS (Elche, Spain); GESER (Connecticut USA); JURNE (Oakland, CA,USA); LOKISS (Paris, France); SERCH (Zwolle, The Netherlands); SWET (Copenhague, Denmark); SYE (New Yor, NY,USA); ZOER (Grasse, France).

    This is a writing manual, an inspiring collection of ideas and a beautiful book on the world of graffiti, but above all it is a declaration of love for this culture that mixes urban performance and mastery of letters. It includes a map of New York with the sites where the most important graffiti are located.

  14. Analog VS Digital Book

    Since 1998 Peter Stelzig devotes himself fully to taking photos of graffiti art in Berlin. And in his book Analog vs. Digital Trainwriting Artphotography he focuses on all the different techniques of digital and analog photography.

    With the help of detailed explanations, assistance according to the equipment and loads of know-how Peter Stelzig wants to encourage people to use far more than the auto-mode of the camera and also communicates a broad spectrum of opportunities by explaining special procedures like double exposure or lomography to the reader. And additionally you'll get some advice concerning slide films, black-and-white films, infrared films and even some tricks for filming with special effects.

On more than 300 illustrations Peter Stelzig shows a wide range of coloured trains, which he documented with various techniques over the last 14 years. So this book is not so much a how-to-damage-property guide, it's more a instruction on how to get better at photo documentation.

  22. Back Jumps - The Live Issue 3

    320 pages, paperback- Since 2003, the nationally acclaimed and unique exhibition series BackJumps - The Live Issue has had sensational impact and successes in Berlin. The Backjumps team, built around curator Adrian Nabi, successfully wrapped their third major Live event, in late 2007. While gallery owners and professionals of the culture sector were left rubbing their eyes and the conservative tabloid newspapers elevated the project s profile with cries of scandal, approximately 50,000 enthusiastic art lovers made a pilgrimage to the exhibitions and numerous Backjumps-related side events in Kreuzberg.
    BackJumps - Live Issue # 3 , the three-dimensional Live edition of the legendary Backjumps magazine, once again brought the street art scene together to view works of numerous international artists under one roof. In addition to the actual exhibition, several workshops, panel discussions, lectures, urban walks and partner exhibitions took place. Several large scale murals were painted throughout the city under the Backjumps banner and of course, throughout the course of the events, the streets of Berlin were as alive and visual as ever.

    All this and much more can be found in the From Here To Fame s newly published 320-page (catalogue-)book, BackJumps - Live Issue # 3 , which, in keeping with former editions, strikes a bold note with its revolutionary design. The book gives the reader an allinclusive tour of the exhibition rooms, describing with brilliant images and thoughtful texts, the work of the 24 artists and projects. Additional information and numerous other works of each individual artist are also found in the extensive artist chapter of the catalogue. With the book s retrospect of Live Issues # 1 and # 2, light is shed on the Backjumps scandal , and the impact that the expositions have had on the Berlin art scene. POET 1 examines the story of the Backjumps magazine, from its humble beginnings to its present day success, while CEMNOZ, CHEECH and DON M. ZAZA elucidate the depths of their style philosophy. Select photographs of the side events, careful documentation of the painted murals and a large chapter on street art that includes more pictures, essays and academic treatises make this volume a must-have for more than just avid lovers of writing and street art.

The work of Banksy is unmistakable, except may be when it's squatting in the Tate or New York's Metropolitan Museum. Banksy is responsible for decorating the streets, walls, bridges and zoos of towns and cites throughout the world. Witty and subversive, his stencils show monkeys with weapons of mass destruction, policeman with smiley faces, rats with drills, and umbrellas. If you look hard enough you'll find your own. His statements, incitements, ironies and epigrams are by turns intelligent and cheeky comments on everything from the monarchy and capitalism to the war in Iraq and farm animals. His identity remains unknown, but his work is prolific. And now for the first time, he's putting together the best of his work - old and new in a fully illustrated colour volume.

  30. Beauty in Decay

    192 pages, Hardcover - “Take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints.” This is the unspoken rule of urban explorers, who sometimes risk their safety, police records, and even their lives to explore abandoned buildings, sewers and storm drains, transit tunnels, utility tunnels, high-security areas of inhabited buildings, and even catacombs such as those in Paris, Rome, Odessa, and Naples.

    Although these urban explorers usually work solo or in small teams, they collectively put forth a ground cry against a modern culture that embraces the new, polished, uniform, and mundane. Urban explorers find the beauty — layers of graffiti by years worth of writers, multi-hued peeling paint, antique objects, someone’s initials left in the dust on a broken stained glass window — and physical manifestations of memory that abandoned, impermanent urban spaces can hold.

    Beauty in Decay features the best in full-color, panoramic photographs from urban exploration — or Urbex — around the world. Overgrown industrial complexes, disused lunatic asylums, abandoned palaces and forgotten monasteries are showcased, and paired with clear-sighted, poetic text.

  34. Beyond Illustration

    200 pages, Hardcover. Topic of this innovative book is the emergence of an exciting new genre of illustration and art. This vivid development is reflected in the intense influx of illustrators to the field of art. The interaction of illustration, art and design is not only most interesting but cannot be avoided as a topic of discussion for anyone who is interested in art and design. In great detail Beyond Illustration presents a significant selection of more than 20 of today’s hottest illustrators and artists from all over the world. The book is showcasing a spellbinding mix of styles ranging from modern to traditional that will attract to professionals and newcomers as well.

    Beyond Illustration displays the unique work of these persons and their individual viewpoints concerning this upcoming issue. For many postmodern artists there is a fine line between “illustration” and “art” which even disappears occasionally. The traditional definition for illustration as a service product and art as an autonomous project is less and less maintained as a clear borderline. This fact not only attracts many illustrators to the fields of art but makes you also look at their work as pieces of art. In the US we can clearly observe that more and more pieces of work of traditional illustrators are shown in galleries and at art exhibitions. The same phenomenon can be seen in Europe.

    Beyond Illustration discusses all aspects and gives an overview about the trendsetters of the “Scene” and in consideration of the fact it is a must-have, not only for creative professionals and students, but also for artists and anyone who has a sympathy for visual language. This title is the first print-project by the publishers of the ezine castlemagazine. With approximately 30.000 downloads per issue castlemagazine has an undeniable presence in scene and market.

  37. Blade - King of Graffiti

    BLADE has already told his life story through graffiti. Now, more than forty years into his career and armed with an incredible memory, BLADE sits down with Chris Pape to reflect on growing up in the Bronx in the turbulent 1970s, and recounts the highs and lows of his storied career, holding nothing back. BLADE is considered “The King of Graffiti” because, by 1980, after painting 5,000 wildly creative trains, he stopped counting. This book parallels the New York graffiti movement almost from its inception, moving through its glory years in the mid-1970s, when BLADE earned his title, and ending in the global art scene, where he remains a major presence. BLADE helped New York graffiti become internationally famous by making it look fun, and, for reasons of quantity, quality, and, perhaps above all, for sheer spirit, BLADE may very well be the most popular graffiti artist with his peers.

  39. Blurring Boundaries

    208 pages, Softcover
    9 1/2 x 11 3/4"
    250 Illustrations, English
     
    Hendrick Beikirch, or ECB, is seeking to change our perception of what graffiti is or can be by extending its limits. ECB is a German painter working on large-scale black and white or grayscale murals in public spaces worldwide. This new book is a compilation of the artists work, and provides insight into that work through both interviews and photographs of his process and execution. ECB looks for new approaches and blurs the lines between fine art and graffiti. The scale of his outdoor murals does not take away from the familiarity created in his portraits, often of anonymous faces, making the work accessible to the masses. The astounding scale he works at is made evident in one of his best-known works,  "Where there is no struggle, there is no strength". Located in Busan, South Korea, the mural of a local fisherman is over 20 stories and measures 230 feet, making it Asias tallest mural. Photographs in the book show the work in progress, as well as its context situated against the backdrop of Busans skyscrapers. Blurring Boundaries is an intimate photographic look at ECBs process, body of work and the people who inspire him.
