1. Graffiti Murals

    Six case studies, conducted in New York City, Trenton, and Jersey City, explore how graffiti murals are created and what role they play in cities where buffing illegal graffiti is a lucrative business. The author interviewed people affected on a daily basis by the murals at sites around the metropolitan area, including property owners who have welcomed the muralists in hopes that the artwork would serve as a deterrent to vandalism—and provide a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to buffing. This analysis, informed by cultural Marxism and supported by street photography, suggests a radical departure from traditional New York City policy: instead of spending money exclusively on the elimination of illegal graffiti, resources should also be devoted to the creation of graffiti murals. In the end, graffiti removal teams and mural promoters are pursuing the same goal: making the city a more visually appealing place.

  4. Graffiti Planet

    128 pages, hardcover- Graffiti or "street art" has been a significant art form for more than 20 years, altering and shaping the urban landscape from Tokyo to Paris, Los Angeles to Sydney, Belfast to Berlin. Ever-changing and evolving, its anonymous, transient nature means it literally can appear one day and disappear the next. Yet out of this shifting mass of spray paint, some true stars have emerged—artists such as Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Banksy—as well as countless unsung heroes who have taken the form to new heights. This book is a celebration of the endless creativity of the medium, featuring 100 glossy photos of groundbreaking graffiti from around the world, and including an introduction by the editor, Ket. It is a perfect introduction to the subject for anyone excited by this most vibrant and democratic of art forms.

  7. Graffiti Tattoo Vol.2

    Survey of international artists that merge these two vivid art forms: graffiti art and tattoo. Documenting the transition that graffiti writers are increasingly making into the tattoo world, this is #2 in this definitive series. Since the 70s, graffiti artists have made the leap to become muralists, fashion designers, art directors, and now late tattoo artists. Similar to the graffiti movement, in which the artists battle with one another in the public eye to be the best and most respected, the same competitive spirit holds within the tattoo world. These tattoos are a language filled with graffiti style burners and characters that are a departure from the standard tribal design and sailor styles. While the first book allowed a rare glimpse into this movement, this much larger successor provides a full-blown compendium of these fantastic burners on skin. Includes the work of Blen167, Chucho, Franz Jager, Kaves, Jason Kundell, Logan, Norm, Sabe, and many others.

  9. Graffiti World Updated Edition: Street Art from Five Continents

    Graffiti World, now updated, is the most comprehensive and bestselling survey of graffiti art ever published. The original collection of more than 2,000 illustrations by over 150 artists around the world is joined by a new section devoted to work created in the five years since the book's first edition.
    Graffiti has long been a ubiquitous aspect of the urban landscape, since anonymous, largely unsung spray-can art first hit city walls in New York and Philadelphia in the late 1960s. As hip-hop culture spread from America, graffiti became a worldwide phenomenon, emerging in the 1980s as the symbolic artistic language of young people everywhere.
    Today's graffiti artists incorporate a variety of mediums, including stickers, stencils, oils, acrylics, and oil-based chalk, as well as an ever-expanding range of social commentary. This evolution in style and subject matter has guaranteed graffiti's long-lasting influence on art, graphic design, and style around the world.

  20. If You're Reading This, There's Still Time.

    Morley is a Los Angeles-based street artist that specializes in bold, typographic posters which he wheat pastes within the urban landscape. Blending humor, hope and his unique perspective on life, Morley's aim is to act as a friendly voice amongst the cacophony of billboarded messages and corporate slogans. This voice was given a face when he began including an image of himself in each of his pieces, looking to create a more intimate relationship between the artist and the audience than many of his anonymous contemporaries could allow. In 2011, Morley's work caught the eye of Steve Lazarides whose Outsiders imprint began selling his work, describing it thusly: "His sympathetic statements give the tirelessly aspirational residents a welcome reminder of what's important in life: love, simple pleasures, making the world a slightly better place and not hating on yourself too much." Today, he continues to paste his work in any city that doesn't enforce their vandalism laws through caning. Also he made us promise to include the fact that he can hold his breath for over an hour, and that if anyone challenged him to a breath holding contest, they would totally lose - but he was probably lying about that.

  23. Jonone The Chronicles

    The Chronicles traces the artist JonOne’s unusual journey from New York to Paris and from the spray can to the paintbrush. Born in Harlem in the early 60s, the artist’s early career is firmly rooted in the rule-bound hierarchy of tagging and graffiti culture. With his move to Paris in 1987, JonOne’s artistic constrictions were quickly cast aside. The energy of his paintings on canvas was undeniable and almost immediately found a rapt audience in Europe. By the 1990s he was fully engaged by his studio practice and gallery shows. To this day, JonOne’s colorful and frenetic work continues to make waves, most recently with gallery shows in New York and Art Basel, Miami. Alongside over 300 paintings created over the past 30 years, texts by Henry Chalfant, Magda Danysz, agnès b, Tom Laurent, Alan Ket and others bring this fascinating artist’s career fully into focus.

  24. JR & Art Spiegelman: The Ghosts of Ellis Island

    In August 2014 the French artist JR received an unprecedented invitation to work in the Ellis Island Immigrant Hospital, a building on the south side of the island that has been abandoned and closed to visitors since 1954. About ten percent of the millions of migrants who passed through Ellis Island, having been deemed not healthy enough to enter the United States, spent some time in the hospital. For Unframed―Ellis Island, documented in The Ghosts of Ellis Island, JR chose about 20 archival photographs of the hospital's patients and staff and wheat-pasted these images around the abandoned building, creating haunting scenes that bring the history of these rooms back to life: a family looking out at the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, a small boy lying on an empty bed frame, patients staring out of the caged "psychopathic" ward. The work, which is accessible by guided tour, will remain up "until it decides to disappear." Along with images of JR's photographic interventions in the hospital, this publication includes new illustrations by legendary cartoonist Art Spiegelman, who collaborated with JR on illustrated narratives about Ellis Island's immigrants.
    JR (born 1983) is best known for his monumental, wheat-pasted street portraiture projects. His ongoing project Unframed involves installing archival images and images from anonymous photographers in new contexts. JR has carried out Unframed projects in Marseille, São Paulo, Vevey, Atlanta, Baden Baden and Washington, DC. In 2014 he worked inside the theater of the NYC Ballet creating a 6,500-square-foot composite image of NYCB dancers depicted nearly life-size that, when seen from above, forms a giant eye. JR won the TED Prize for 2011.
    Art Spiegelman (born 1948) is an American cartoonist, editor and comics advocate based in New York City, best known for his graphic novel Maus (1991). His work as coeditor on the comics magazines Arcade and Raw has been influential, and he spent a decade as contributing artist for The New Yorkerwhere he made several high-profile and sometimes controversial covers.

    • The Chronicles of San Francisco features all the individual portraits and selected stories alongside behind-the-scenes photos, a foreword by Neal Benezra, and an introduction by JR.

    "JR's colossal photographic mural, The Chronicles of San Francisco, is an exuberant celebration of democracy in an age when it could not be more needed or welcome... Humanity, in all its lovely messiness, is palpable." 
    –Armistead Maupin, author of Tales of the City
