1. Vandals by Nils Mueller

    Vandals is Nils Müller’s new book. Like his first publication, Blütezeit, it depicts the curiously global phenomenon of graffiti on trains – a movement that remains illegal even as it penetrates the world of mainstream art.

    Vandals provides insight into a hidden movement that is dangerously appealing. Instead of simply photographing the finished works, Müller documents the process behind it. Across 192 pages, Vandals reveals the atmosphere, emotional tension, passion and teamwork behind each act of urban vandalism.

  3. Urban Iran

    208 pages, hardcover- Urban Iran is a depiction of everyday life apart from international and diplomatic policies, giving voice to people living and working in Iran today while probing the complexities of contemporary Iran. Described and revealed by photographers, writers and visual artists, from street art to heavy metal bands and book publishing, Urban Iran documents how the Western media gaze influences how much of the world views Iran, but also how this gaze impacts how Iranians see themselves, especially in the realm of the creative arts.

    Novelist Salar Abdoh relays how his adventures driving a Puegot 206 hatchback in and around Tehran were emblematic of a ''split in the personality of the country . . . what makes Iran so difficult to describe to non-Iranians''; Tehran-based photographer and designer Karan Reshad offers images of markets and the country's burgeoning graffiti scene, most notably the work of A1ONE; articles from the magazine Bidoun delve into Tehran's largest housing complex, Iranian facial hair trends and the country's underground heavy metal scene; Charlotte Noruzi's personal stories about the effects of her childhood books remain with her today, resulting in her exploration of the current state of publishing and illustration in Iran today.

    Together, all of these parts form a whole, an intimate portrait that is insightful and visually diverse.

  9. Untitled 2 (The Beautiful Renaissance)

    192 pages, paperback. Brilliant successor to the first edition, this book about street art has again been created without the collaboration of the artists and certainly without the permission of the wall owners. Works featured are all recent creations and many exhibit the vile passions that rage between old schools and new. There are blatant statements that embody outrageous lies, articles laced with satire, plus cynical synopses of attempts to commercialize street art and make it fashionable via celebrity endorsement. Consideration is given to the question What the hell is it about the color grey that makes it appeal the powers that be and their ridiculous minions? and Outsider Art is it an expression of artistic impulse without interference from the idea of personal gain? All of this amongst a collection of graffiti collected from all over the world and preserved on these pages before the legions employed to destroy them chip them off the walls. Artists featured include Miss Van, Dan Witz, Ron English, Obey, Banksy, Blek le Rat, Swoon, Os Gemeos, and Herakut.

    Under the Bridge: The East 238th Street Graffiti Hall Of Fame
    by Paul Cavalieri
     
    Join Paul “Cavs” Cavalieri on a journey through graffiti history and the evolution of a major cultural landmark. In this account, Cavs shares his experiences under the Bronx’s East 238th Street bridge, which over the years has become a Bronx “Graffiti Hall of Fame,” through an astonishing, lifelong photographic diary. From the late 1950s to the 1990s, graffiti artists would congregate here to express themselves by unleashing their creative ENERGY. In this adopted home away from home, generations of graffiti artists formed bonds as well as rivalries. Take in four decades’ worth of work from prolific artists including Boots119, Sent, and Sien5. Also represented are graffiti writers from the Woodlawn and Wakefield neighborhoods, connected by the famous concrete viaduct built between 1929 and 1931, as well as unique and personal insights into successive generations of crews, such as a recent, major contributor from Matilda Avenue.

But to the children who grew up there, the abandoned buildings and rubble-strewn lots made perfect playgrounds, providing raw materials and open space for unsupervised play. A crumbling tenement housed a secret clubhouse, rooftops became private aviaries, and a pile of trash might be a source for treasure.

    144 Pages, Paperback- Until recently, art made in the street and art made within the institution had mutually excluded each other. Graffiti writers have mastered their medium like modern painters but because it did not emerge from a studio it was not considered to be ''real art'' by the critics. Still On, a catalog of a street art exhibition by the Von Der Heydt Museum Wuppertal in Barmen, Germany-, makes the case for graffiti as contemporary art. Beyond notions of vandalism and interventions in public space, graffiti and street art is a dialog between artists and their immediate environment. This exhibit examines how each artist responds to the confines of the Ruhmenshalle Gallery and how the vitality of their work translates successfully to the museum with out losing any of its power or integrity. With works on canvas, installation and painting directly on the gallery walls by Tasek, OS GEMEOS, Herbert Baglione, TILT, MISS VAN, Mirko Reisser, Pius Portman, Stohead, ZEVS Daniel Man, and Heiko Zahlman.

    160 pages, hardcover- On October 27 2006, when Mexican police opened fire on a crowd of protesters in the city of Oaxaca, killing three people, including American journalist Brad Roland Will, the world became aware of a social conflict that at its core was about the right to an education. Within hours of these shootings, graffiti calling the region's governor a murderer was sprayed throughout the city. Unlike in other cities where graffiti is recognized as a form of public art, in Oaxaca, graffiti became a way of achieving social justice through community organization. And because teachers in Mexico are primarily women, the graffiti is very much inspired and made by women. Shot by Elaine Sendyk in 2007, the photographs in this book depict oppression, empowerment and the messages of struggle and revolt.

  38. Paris Underground

    192 pages, hardcover- THE GRAFFITI ART of the tunnels and quarries beneath Paris is a mirror and memorial of the past 500 years. It is easier to track the history of Paris through these images than to look for it above ground in the streets. For generations, a broad range of French citizenry has created artwork that responds to historical events like the French Revolution, the storming of the Bastille, Prussian and German soldiers, the Nazi occupation, Resistance workers, civilian and secret societies, the Cataphiles and the student and workers' strikes of the late 1960s. This book illustrates graffiti, painting, sculpture, mosaics and cartoons. Today, the underground labyrinths are plagued by illicit explorers who leave elaborate art behind. This book brings to light these striking images and the insightful text tells the tale that to date has remained underground.

  44. Nuevo Mundo Latin American Street Art

    256 pages, hardcover: One could argue that today’s most innovative street artists come from Latin America. The unique visual styles of Os Gêmeos, Bastardilla, Vitché, Saner, Jorge Rodriguez Gerada, and others are not only highly respected in the international art scene, but their work has also been exhibited at renowned museums including the Tate Modern and Fondation Cartier.

     
    Nuevo Mundo is the first book to provide a comprehensive documentation of current street art in Latin America by exploring the full spectrum of regional scenes in their impressive diversity. The book is structured into chapters that introduce work from Argentina, Brazil, Central America, Chile, Columbia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
     
    Nuevo Mundo features not only established artists from Latin America, but also promising new talents. In addition to inspiring images, the book’s informed texts describe the history and context of the region as a whole and also give insight into each scene.
     
    The explosive mixture of indigenous cultures, local folklore, and the history of European colonization has created a unique visual style. The high regard in which these young street artists are now held around the world is a sign of the new self-confidence of an entire continent.

  50. Morris Park Crew The Official History

    No other graffiti crew from New York City’s graffiti heyday conjures up more images of angel dust-smoking, beer-drinking, “crazy white boys,” than the Bronx-born-and-bred writing group Morris Park Crew (MPC). This official history of the crew tells the stories behind the group with never-before-published photos, oral histories from MPC members, and details on the 2009-2010 MPC revival. Starting in 1977, when founding members Slip, Wedge, and Speed started the crew, this account continues with details of how Cap 1 took over and led the crew down its unforgettable path in the 1980s. With a penchant for going to war with rival graffiti crews for train space and territory, which in turn led to the largest city-wide cross-out campaign, the MPC was known as a bunch of thugs who beat, hung, and shot perceived rivals and a group of talent-less “toys.” Wrapped up in this raw tell-all about the bad boys of NYC graffiti, are not just accounts of the crew’s passion for graffiti, but the real-life challenges its young members faced in their urban environment.

  59. Like Lipstick Traces

    226 pages, hardcover- 13 graffiti writers, 2 years, 600 unpublished Polaroids. Like Lipstick Traces shows the everyday life of 13 graffiti writers. Consciously, and therefore in contrast with usual graffiti publications, it uses the peculiar medium of Polaroid. A Polaroid camera and about one hundred Polaroid photos was sent to well known graffiti writers of different nationalities. The task was to shoot their everyday life with complete freedom in the choice of the motifs. It is that freedom which makes this book so special, but also the fact that all these unpublished photos were taken especially for the book. In the beginning of the 21st century, graffiti seems to be taking a line which is totally against its original motivation. On one hand, this might be caused by more severe penalties, on the other it is due to the increasing incorporation of the media and big business. Thus, the artists presented in this book devote themselves to this art in a committed way. They do not succumb to commercial pressure and they bring new life into the graffiti movement. Artists featured are AROE (UK), C.B.S (DE), DUMBO (IT), HONET (FR), KEGR (DK), O CLOCK (FR), OS CURURUS (BR), RATE (USA), REMIO (NOR), ROCKY (ES), SCAN (CA), SMASH (CH), THE E.R.S (BE).

  67. Im In Miami Bitch

         In the fall of 2012 with Art Basel Miami Beach quickly approaching I decided to ensconce myself in the street art scene of Wynwood to tell the story. An area once known as “El Barrio” and now gentrified into the Wynwood Art District, every year in late November artists from around the world descend on the streets of Wynwood to remake the facade of almost every building, overhead door and nook or cranny where paint could be applied.

  75. Graffiti and Street Art

    The traditional letter-based writing that appeared on the streets of Philadelphia and New York over forty years ago has evolved into two distinct disciplines. While both thrive illegally and challenge the concept of public space, the new wave of street art puts greater emphasis on figures, abstraction, symbols and formal techniques.
     
    This incisive and highly readable survey traces the evolution of graffiti and street art and explores the motivations and practices of the leading exponents. Terms and language are examined in detail – from tags and throwies to culture jamming and ⁠subvertising – along with their many influences and genres.
     
    Uniquely, Graffiti and Street Art analyses not just the work, but the functions of graffiti and street art and their increasingly important role in urban visual culture. The picture that emerges is a rich celebration of two of the defining art movements of the twenty-first century.
     
    Anna Wacławek began researching graffiti and street art in the late 1990s, travelling extensively in Canada and the USA as well as Japan, China, Poland, Germany, the UK, France and Spain to conduct first-hand analysis. She holds several professional qualifications in art history and currently works at Concordia University, Montreal, in the Department of Art History.

  77. Five Cities

    72 pages, hardcover.These images represent the European cities of Palermo, Istanbul, Budapest, Paris and Berlin through their surface markings. In five sequences of closely related photographs Sinclair takes characteristic features of the urban landscape - the park, the subway station, the street, the cemetery and the bridge - to explore the interaction between a city and its citizens as recorded in graffiti. Yet the visible effects of weather and the passage of time acknowledge the ultimate ephemerality of this human activity, lending the images an elegiac quality and their subject the aspect of a natural process. In this, the second in a trilogy of books to examine the surfaces of European cities, we are invited to look at graffiti anew: not as aggressive intrusions, but rather as part of an ongoing, collaborative transformation of the modern city.

  78. Erosie (Part of Rebellion 3)

    128 pages, softcover. Third edition in this remarkably successful series is devoted to one of the greats of the Dutch and European street art scene, Erosie. Active since 1993, Erosie has developed a totally unique style that in his own words "...looks for parallels between and the nuances of the graffiti-codes, the illustrated image, commercial visual language and the traditions of art..." His goals are to use, confirm, deny or question these fields visually and/or conceptually in the quest to define his own personal visual language, which is a mixture of street art and pop art. He uses humor, mixes graffiti lettering with typography, challenges us with puns and wordplay and his illustrative style is a cross between Edward Gorey and Robert Crumb — think no further than the headless chicken or the two rappers, Jay-Z and Nas, battling it out in cartoon form.

It's impossible Here, the artist behind those five obsessively repeated letters--who has brought the question art or vandalism to a country better known for its Renaissance painting and streamlined design--reveals himself and the enigmatic art underground that has nurtured him over the last decade. Photographs depicting the clandestine routines of graffiti writing for Italy's most popular street artist accompany almost 200 color pictures of Dumbo's work all over Italy and Europe. Artist Barry McGee--who honored Dumbo in a piece done for the European opening of the American street art show Beautiful Losers--says in a preface here, Dumbo represents everything right in this world by doing everything we are told is wrong.

  81. Delusional - The Story of Jonathan LeVine Gallery

    Widely revered as the “artists’ gallerist,” Jonathan LeVine has nourished a much needed alternative viewpoint within the stilted New York art market. In the pages of Delusional, readers will discover the fascinating backstory that brought this punk kid from Trenton to the hallowed gallery walls of Chelsea.

    LeVine began his career in the arts publishing a fanzine in the 1980s and then curating shows at diverse venues in the 90s. By the turn of the millennium, LeVine had opened up Tin Man Alley, his own gallery located in New Hope, and then Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

    The Jonathan LeVine Gallery was officially launched in New York City in 2005. Since then, LeVine has brought his considerable talents to bear, focusing on work influenced by illustration, comic books, graffiti, street art and pop culture imagery.

    Levine’s featured artists tend to share a strong figurative and narrative inclination and include Doze Green, Shepard Fairey, Audrey Kawasaki, Gary Baseman, Camille Rose Garcia, Tara McPherson, Josh Agle (aka Shag) and a long list of other esteemed artists*.

    However humble his aspirations, Dave the Chimp has managed to have an impact around the world with his art. Included is an interview with the artist and many examples of his fine work on walls as well as graphic projects.

    Dave the Chimp is the second publication in the Part of Rebellion Series, monographs focusing on artists from the groundbreaking Art of Rebellion and Art of Rebellion 2 first published in 2004.

  86. Caleb Neelon - Book of Awesome

Across, around, and in between five continents, indoors and out, Caleb has pulled off some unique, colorful, and heartfelt work both alongside collaborators like Os Gemeos and Andrew Schoultz, as well as in streets where he is the first foreigner – let alone street painter – to wander in quite some time. Featuring heartfelt travel stories going beyond the artwork to the socio-political situations that surround them, as well as the large-scale gallery installations of Caleb’s from venues such as the Boston Center for the Arts, Caleb Neelon’s Book of Awesome provides an overview of the work of this diverse and distinctive artist.

    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.

    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.

  94. 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.

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.
