1. Mai/Jonone

    “Jon and I share a love for street culture where creativity, life, pride, chaos are banded together. This book is a tribute to hip-hop, to street culture, art, soul and to the precious moments of life that we share.” –Maï Lucas The pulsating monochrome of Drago’s 36 chambers series is met by the iconic graffiti and photography that defines Maï, Jonone and streets of New York. Their eclectic tour of the streets takes the reader through some of New York’s most distinctive neighbourhoods as seen as seen through the lens of celebrated photographer, Maï Lucas. Meanwhile, JonOne’s unique graffiti writing permeates the pages with vibrant red accents. JonOne’s paintings defy the “rules” of graffiti. With a tremendous sense of movement and color, his compositions combine freestyle, hand-painted aesthetics with a sense of repetition akin to textile patterns. His work has often been compared to that of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock and French artist Jean Dubuffet. By layering precise strokes and vibrant color, he creates a uniquely balanced yet dynamic visual experience.

  3. Writing Stories with Three Letters: Art and Graffiti by EGS

    Finnish contemporary artist EGS is one of the most successful of his generation. As one of the first clearly graffiti-rooted artists in Scandinavia EGS had a major solo show in Helsinki’s Kunsthalle in 2018. In the spring of 2020 he will be exhibited at The Finnish Glass Museum.

    EGS works in his own universe, grounded in the use of the three letters in his name only. Whether it’s his dynamic ink drawings or the slower but even more hard-to-control media of glass, those three letters is the fundament of his art and the stories he tells.

    While showing works in museums and galleries internationally, EGS still keeps painting graffiti on the streets around the world. He has become an important figure in the international graffiti community. Both for the quality of his work, but also for an intellectual vibe that goes like a red thread through all of his work, strengthen their output as well as being an open, curious and generous person, doing pieces in the most diverse parts of the world with great respect for the context.

    In this book, EGS and graffiti-archivist and author Tobias Barenthin-Lindblad discuss EGS’ practice in both studio and in the streets. The conversation covers topics directly connected to the artwork that is depicted in the book, but also about the deeper meanings and driving forces of being an artist. How does one bring the energy from painting in the street into a studio? How can you bring the uncertainity in making glass into painting graffiti in the street? How do a painting in an abandoned Finnish factory and a glass sculpture in a gallery communicate? Is an artist measured by a single art work or by his or her body of work? And last but not least: can a word without meaning have a message?

    Writing Stories with Three Letters goes deep into the art, creativity and theories of one of the most exciting contemporary artists from Scandinavia.

    "With one leg in classic graffiti and the other in fine art, EGS represents the perfect symbiosis of both worlds. He has taken the long road and the authenticity that radiates from his works is unmistakable.”

    Tony “Rubin” Sjöman

    ”EGS has grown from a graffiti adventurer to a multi-disciplinary artist whose work breaks convention and delivers beauty in the most unexpected ways. Through EGS we learn what it is like for a graffiti artist to reach his full potential and morph from a vandal to a contemporary artist - a damn good one.”

  4. Copyright Beyond Law : Regulating Creativity in the Graffiti Subculture

    The form of graffiti writing on trains and walls is not accidental. Nor is its absence on cars and houses. Employing a particular style of letters, choosing which walls and trains to write on, copying another writer, altering or destroying another writer's work: these acts are regulated within the graffiti subculture. Copyright Beyond Law presents findings from empirical research undertaken into the graffiti subculture to show that graffiti writers informally regulate their creativity through a system of norms that are remarkably similar to copyright.
    The 'graffiti rules' and their copyright law parallels include: the requirement of writing letters (subject matter) and appropriate placement (public policy and morality exceptions for copyright subsistence and the enforcement of copyright), originality and the prohibition of copying (originality and infringement by reproduction), and the prohibition of damage to another writer's works (the moral right of integrity). The intersection between the 'graffiti rules' and copyright law sheds light on the creation of subculture-specific commons and the limits of copyright law in incentivising and regulating the production and location of creativity.

  5. Crash Kid: A Hip-Hop legacy

    It is impossible to tell the story of street dance without telling in the stories of people.
    And ‘Crash Kid: A Hip-Hop Legacy,’ is the book which tells the story of street dance by telling the story of its kids; the story of one kid in particular.
    ‘Crash Kid,’ Massimo Colonna, was a young man who became synonymous with the breakdance movement and all aspects of the inauguration of American street culture into the lives of young Romans. This was the kid who was a master at that pivotal move of the genre, the head spin, and who with that move became one of the most pivotal players in this scene.
    The city of Rome had never seen anything like this. A form of dance where the dancehalls were the streets, a form which was so underground, that it was almost a dark art. And yet it was Massimo’s dedication towards the form which was making this art form the new way to party. And it was through an organic and exponential growth of the party, that this new form of dance and culture was beginning to thrive.
    To make its way towards the mainstream. ‘Crash Kid: A Hip-Hop Legacy,’ is a book which brings it all together. A book which is about the street, the party, the dance, the lives of one special kid in particular, who circa 1980, was inaugurating this new form of dance into the street culture of Rome. And this exponential growth of a genre is seen across more than 400 images of the party and the dance scene, at this particular time in history.
    Massimo and his friends used breakdance and street art as a way of breaking a symphony into parts, out over the city streets. The ‘Zulu’ parties, the ‘Bambaataa’ parties, the ‘Fast Breaking Crew,’ of Rome. Massimo, always there, a kid who was an oxymoron to his own name, for he did not crash, was famous for not crashing, but for staying perfectly balanced on his head. And spinning on and on.
    The book proves that when you try to piece together the story of Roman breakdance, you discover that what you are in fact piecing together are the lives of all those kids who were dancing and breaking on the streets of Rome around the time, during the mid-1980s. And these are the kids who remember Massimo, many of them now key figures themselves in the Roman and Hip-Hop scene.
    We learn about who Massimo was through the stories of key players such as MC Shark, Amir Issaa and the joint creators of the book itself, Ben Matundu and Napal. Massimo and his friends used breakdance and street art as a way of breaking a symphony over the city streets.

  6. Street Art & Graffiti of Comuna 13 : Medillin, Colombia

    This coffee table book is about the street art and graffiti of Comuna 13 in Medellin, Colombia. Once one of the most dangerous neighborhood in Medellin, Colombia, Comuna 13 was known for guerrilla and gang activities, including drugs and gun trafficking.

    From the early 1980s, Medellin was controlled by Pablo Escobar, the infamous drug lord, but by 1993 after his death, many drug cartels sought control of the city and the violence continued to rise. However in recent years, Comuna 13 has become more known for its powerful graffiti murals and street art performances, which depict the conflict and hardship experienced by the community, the impact of the government intervention and the strength and importance of the community's actions that helped to put an end to the violence in the community.

    This street art renaissance started with two main street artists, @YesGraff and @Chota_13, who used the walls of Comuna 13 as their canvas to raise awareness and display the community's difficult past, bringing hope to its people and a recent steady stream of visitors.

    This collection of Comuna 13's murals highlights the community's most popular artistry. Within every art piece, there is the artist's interpretation or the view in which the artist intend for the viewers to interpret. With the help of the talented, Elizabeth Ray, each mural is paired with a poetic exposition.

  • 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.
