SCRIPT is primarily interested in the history, theory, interpretation, and literary alterity of filmscripts and teleplays, and we invite +/- 5,000 word articles concerned with the same. SCRIPT also solicits close readings of and critical investigations into other abject textual forms including: code arrays, asemic writing, graffiti, tattoos, and any other marginal(ized) scripted utterance.

A popular-academic hybrid, SCRIPT publishes belletristic work that blends academic rigor with the style of (new) journalism. Submissions should be jargon light, intellectually stimulating, and written for an educated lay audience.

SCRIPT also publishes:

- interviews with film and television writers, code poets, asemic and tattoo artists & graffiti writers

- excerpts from works of code literature & (un)produced/soon-to-be-produced/recently (re)discovered film and television scripts

- images/video of asemic art, tattoos & graffiti (master)pieces

- reviews of/responses to recently published scripts & (un/official) art installations

As a web-based journal, SCRIPT can publish all manner of (hyper)media including: images, sounds, animations, and videos. Such things can support written articles or serve as "essays" in their own rights. Quimby Melton

Sticker Phiends III, Phoenix Arizona April 2010

The show was created in early 2008, when "Mad One" had the opportunity to curate a gallery show @ Hood Ride a gallery in downtown Phoenix, Arizona USA.

In April of '08 the show "Sticker Phiends" was born with full force with artwork/stickers being sent in by graphic designers, street/graffiti artists, photographers and bands/DJs from all over the world, in response to a few simple words of mouth to a couple of my friends and artists.

On April 4th 2009, more than 100 artists exhibited inside the gallery and about 1000 people joined in the incredible experience of art, music (Live DJ), and adult beverages with hundreds and hundreds of stickers. Also in the outside gallery portion 5-ft X 10-ft sticker wall collaboration was created featuring larger sticker/poster creations sent in from artists worldwide. This show just WON BEST OF PHoenix Art show in 2009.

"Sticker Phiends" was also supported by some very generous sponsors, like Sticky Rick, Day in the Lyfe zine, Spray Graphic clothing, just to name a few. The show also had tons of free giveaways like stickers, toys, prints ...

In April 2010 the second official "Sticker Phiends" show take place. Involved will be national and international artists.

If you would like to participate and/or sponsor the event in any form or have questions regarding the show details,

ON THE RUN BOOK # 4 | release date 25th September 2009

After the successful relaunch of ON THE RUN BOOKS in spring 2009, we proudly present for your reading and viewing pleasure the first book in the second round of OTR titles: Part One – The Death Squad.

A book of great importance, Part One – The Death Squad gives credit where credit is due to the unsung legend that is Part One – an original style writer. This is the first publication that deals with his overwhelming impact on writing culture, with stories from the early days until now. We relish the opportunity to give props and acknowledge one of the true innovators who have paved the way for writing culture aesthetics today. Author Alain “KET” Maridueña delves into the life and times of Part One with exclusive essays on growing up in Spanish Harlem in the 70s and 80s, the mid 70s style writing developmental years, The Death Squad years and the legendary Hall of Fame New York. With foreword by Carlos “Mare 139” Rodriguez and exclusive, unpublished images from Part’s 70s and 80s train writing days along with more recent works. This is a historical gem not to be missed.

Here you can have a look inside the book.

Urban Roots

Urban Roots, by Stan One in Russia, is one of the coolest and best graffiti magazines in print. It's big (#5 is 174 pp), well printed, and full of fresh styles from Russia, Eastern Europe, and beyond. It's in its 5th issue now, but very few people have seen any of them yet, which is tragic. Ask your stores to buy some. Urban Roots is in both English and Russian languages, but it's 98% photos and almost free of advertising, just like we like.

The book has great color reproduction and layout, just like you'd expect from the Carpe Diem and Stylefile folks. And don't forget to buy some Carpe Diem magazines while you're at it. It's one of the world's best graffiti magazines all around. - Susan]

Miami Graffiti

The first book documenting Miami’s graffiti scene by the photographers and authors of the two best-selling New York City graffiti art books, Broken Windows (Gingko Press 2002) and Burning New York (Gingko Press 2006). The graffiti art featured in Graffiti Miami is full of vibrant, tropical colors and a multitude of styles reflecting the surrounding environment. Alongside works of hundreds of artists are interviews, which take the reader on a lush visual journey through this unique and flourishing art form.

176 pages with 220 illustrations
Flexi-cover $25.00
Publication date: April 2009

You can order it at Amazon. The link is on the book's website.

[This book is very well done, as the Murrays' first book was. Inside the practical flexible covers are production after production (almost half of which are nonpermission works trackside or inside the abandoned buildings known as "penits" in Miami), with artists' statements about their influences and work. This is not a typical photographer's graffiti photo book, but instead it's a local scene lovingly documented in collaboration with the Miami writing community. This book is good for schools, good for libraries, and good for historians and collectors. - Susan]

Bay Area Graffiti

From Back Alleys to Industrial Wastelands: The Distinctive Art of San Francisco

Mark Batty Publisher, a leader in distinctive books covering the graphic and communication arts, has released "Bay Area Graffiti" by noted San Francisco photographer Steve Rotman. It is the first book to focus on how this explosive cultural phenomenon runs rampant throughout the region.

With more than 700 photographs and personal descriptive commentary from over 50 of the featured artists, "Bay Area Graffiti" is an unrelenting documentation of the graffiti culture that evolved between 2004 and 2008 in the region, and how it blended into the urban and natural landscapes.

Rotman, better known in the cyber world as Funkandjazz--he was a jazz disc jockey and public radio announcer for many years--has been photographing Bay Area graffiti for more than a decade, posting much of it online. His personal desire for a more permanent record of his work was met with similar requests from many of his online followers. The result is "Bay Area Graffiti."

Born and raised in Minneapolis, Rotman moved to San Francisco to work in radio and, while there, became fascinated with the graffiti scene, which to him seemed to match the city's energetic and continually shifting cultural revolutions.

"I love color, and graffiti is full of great, brilliant combinations of color, as well as fascinating shapes and an undeniable vibrancy. I wanted the book to convey and celebrate the considerable dedication and creativity within the Bay Area graffiti culture," Rotman explains. "It is very gratifying to preserve the art and perspectives of these extraordinary graffiti writers."

U5:The Truth Behind The Lives

u5coverx.jpg by J. B. Torres

This book is written to provide insight on the lives of a group of inner city youths known as U-5. Hopefully it will provide enough of the insight needed to truly understand the type of lives they led, the way they were perceived by others, and the repercussions of events set in motion by the actions of individuals within the group. Furthermore, it will focus on two individuals within the group (Daniel Gomez and Rubin Fernandez aka Soni and Slick), the mystery surrounding their deaths and the repercussions that affected various members of U-5 up until this very day. It will take a look at how graffiti writers were/are portrayed by what we call ‘society’ and go into what I believe are inconsistencies depicted within the book "Subway Lives." It will take you into the heart of Bushwick, Brooklyn where it all started and twenty years later, today. It will follow them into some of their many escapades, some incomprehensible to believe, yet true. You'll get a true sense of the type of people they were, as friends, family and professionals tell us a little about them. Then you will be introduced to U-5 as not only a crew, but as a concept.

Overground 3 – Trans Europe Express

A personal urban tale focusing on graffiti

Graffiti shapes the city. The city shapes graffiti. The physical environment sets its terms through obstacles and opportunities. In Overground 3, using the city as a starting-point, we encounter nine of Europe’s most influential graffiti writers. Their means of expression stretches from pared-down tags, through colourful graffiti productions, to huge installations. Nine extreme artists, each a king of his city. Masters of style and endurance. Their personalities and artistic expression are the results of their environment, and the differences between their lifestyles and driving forces is great. The hunt for the urban and artistic soul criss-crosses Europe. The distance between the CCTVs of London and the worn streets of Prague is not great, but the differences between the two cities are huge. For the first time, the artists are presented as a part of their environment. The city is their studio. They live and work in it, use it and safeguard it every day.

Overground 3 concerns the last free artistic expression of our time. Graffiti is the largest artistic movement in the world, inspiring fashion, music and design. Overground 3 is also the story of a Europe in which privatisation and surveillance are increasingly given space. These changes limit the opportunities for writers, but simultaneously increase the need to create and be visible.

Overground 3 asks questions about who owns the city and the importance of graffiti in Europe’s increasingly commercialised cities. The result is a personal urban portrayal, focusing on art and lifestyle, from Berlin, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Liège, London, Milan, Paris, Prague and Stockholm.

“This is my personal struggle against the Joe Bloggs life. I need excitement and challenge in my daily life. When I paint a train with my friends, I feel free. And also, it's my little contribution to the battle against zero-tolerance and the one-track mind of modern society.” - Cave, Copenhagen

E Pluribus Venom

Sherpard Fairey Recent Work

A new book by renowned American artist Shepard Fairey takes issue with the symbols and methods of the American machine and the American dream. E Pluribus Venom presents a large body of the work shown in Fairey’s massive summer of 2007 exhibition at the Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York.

The works presented in this book expound specifically on the theme that gave the show its flavor. A loose translation of E Pluribus Venom is “Out of many, poison is derived" and is used here as a variation of the theme “E pluribus unum" (out of many, one), an early motto adopted by the United States Government that to this day appears on U.S. currency. The artist’s thesis contends that the notion of “many becoming one" actually results in a loss of individual power and influence, dangerously promotes homogeny, and is in fact a symptom of a society in decline. The works presented in E Pluribus Venom have been created with one objective in mind: to question the symbols and methods of the American machine and American Dream, and to celebrate those who oppose blind nationalism and war.

This publication is much more than a catalogue to an exhibition. It is a damning graphic condemnation of those who are motivated by the many forms of poison endemic in 21st century western society: the corner stones of capitalism, jingoism, xenophobia and unnecessary incursion of foreign territories. E pluribus venom uses powerful imagery to challenge our values and question the power of institutional authority. It also encourages the individual to maintain his or her independence. Shepard Fairey is a remarkable artist who utilizes styles born of the propaganda, hippie and Art Nouveau movements to advocate and celebrate peace.

Artist Survey

My name is Sanah Choudhry and I'm a third year student at Durham University. I'm currently undergoing my dissertation which I have chosen to base around Graffiti. I would be really grateful if you could answer a few questions. It will really boost my dissertation work and give me a better insight into how artists such as yourself perceive graffiti within today's culture.

Obviously you will be anonymous and all your details that I have, which is actually only your email adds, will not be produced in the dissertation document itself, and will be kept entirely confidential. Please let me know if you do want your "name" to be acknowledged because I will be more than happy to add it in - in fact it will probably look better.

"From the director of the underground documentary film Who Is Bozo Texino? Comes a rollicking rail zine of boxcar graffiti and obscrure railroad nostalgia—the result of a 25-year obsession with hobo and railworker folklore. Freight riding stories, interviews with hoboes and boxcar artists, historical oddities and tons of photos of modern day boxcar tags are all presented in the guise of a vintage rail fanzine."

Phil Frost monograph

Phil Frost honed his skills by painting walls, found objects and street detritus with his intricate, compulsive and highly evolved form of tagging. He crafts his painstaking paintings by collaging layers of found imagery on grounds of symmetrical black-and-white patterning, which he paints with correction fluid, and that often morph into language-like glyphs or symbols. Including an essay by New York journalist Carlo McCormick and notorious lowbrow artist Pushead, this is Frost's first monograph, and an invaluable introduction to the evolution of his style.

Graffiti Art

Graffiti Art, le nouveau magazine consacré à la création hors-piste sort aujourd'hui son numéro 1 chez tous les marchands de journaux.

Avec ce nouveau magazine, notre ambition est de vous faire découvrir, tous les deux mois, des artistes dont le travail est singulier. Leur dénominateur commun est d’avoir tous choisi des sentiers “hors-piste” loin des règles établies pour s’exprimer. Graffiti Art vous dévoile leurs univers réservés jusque-là aux initiés.

Et des univers, ce premier numéro en est plein ! À commencer par celui de Mist, artiste et designer de jouets basé à Montpellier ; celui de la photographe Martha Cooper qui documente le mouvement graffiti depuis ses premières heures ; celui de l’illustrateur Pablo Pasadas qui sample les images comme les Dj’s samplent la musique ou bien encore celui de Pete Doherty, le dandy décadent du rock qui peint avec son propre sang !

Vous découvrirez aussi que le marché de l’art s’intéresse de très près au graffiti à travers les témoignages d’Arnaud Oliveux et d’Hélène Bailly, respectivement spécialiste en art contemporain de la maison de ventes aux enchères Artcurial, et directrice de la Galerie Bailly à Paris.

Enfin, comme à chaque numéro, Graffiti Art vous présente les livres, toys, goodies et bons plans du moment.

Lost Collection 0001 | 1998-2008

BOOK TITLE: Lost Collection 0001 | 1998-2008
A special edition of Lost | Graffiti in the City of Angels
224 pages | Spiral bound | 10.5" x 7"
Silkscreened art board covers
Limited to 2000 numbered copies
By Eyeone | Seeking Heaven with foreword by Ian Lynam

Lost Collection 0001 | 1998-2008 is a special-edition volume that spans a decade of documenting graffiti and visual culture on and off the streets of Los Angeles. The book features unpublished material as well as a comprehensive selection of highlights from the long out-of-print first 12 issues of Lost | Graffiti in the City of Angels.

Among those featured in this collection are Tempt STN, Krenz/Yem AM7, Besk UCA, and the MAK crew, innovators and pioneers of L.A. graffiti. Also in this book is work by Ayer LTS (R.I.P), Atlas CBS, and Hael OTR/7TH LETTER, highly influential in shaping contemporary L.A. graffiti. Work by street art pioneer The Phantom, photographer Luna, and illustrator Patrick Martinez presents L.A. visual culture in a broader context.

Two on-going Lost sections are presented in this volume as well; the Lost Blackbook Project which collects rarely-seen sketches and drawings giving a unique look into the graffiti process; and Contrast Resolution, a visual exploration of the impact and effectiveness of graffiti on the streets. Eyeone provides the introduction as well as an overview of issues past, and Ian Lynam rounds out this volume with a foreword that puts Lost in the context of graffiti, typography and design.

Lost | Graffiti in the City of Angels is a highly-acclaimed publication founded in 1998 as a black and white photocopied 'zine by Eyeone of L.A.'s Seeking Heaven crew. Lost is Inspired by independent publications from the straight edge and hardcore music movements and is firmly rooted in graffiti culture.

Lost gives equal importance to all elements of graffiti, from the calligraphy of tagging to the typographical murals that occupy the city. Lost also features artists and photographers informed by the urban experience and makes it a priority to present contemporary as well as historic exponents of Los Angeles visual culture.

Graffiti Coloring Book

Here is the book where you can decide how graffiti should be colored yourself. More than sixty of the best graffiti writers in Scandinavia have done sketches with thick black contours for this classic and unusual coloring book.

The book allows you to practice your coloring skills to sketches by writers like Nug from Stockholm, Egs from Helsinki and Bates from Copenhagen. Graffiti sketches act as patterns for graffiti pieces but are also works of art in their own right. The book is an inspiring document of its time as well as a coloring book.

"After publishing several books on graffiti, it felt right to issue a coloring book on the subject," says publisher Malcolm Jacobson.

The job of collecting sketches was assigned to the Stockholm graffiti writer Uzi, of international renown.

Uzi asked the writers he deems to be the best and most current to do sketches especially for the Graffiti Coloring Book. They include both newcomers and legends. The age of contributors spans from 20 to 40.

It is hard to discern one Scandinavian style as you leaf through the book. The styles vary from Ador's fragmented letter pictures to Disey's wildstyle to Que's train style.

"Scandinavian styles fit quite well in black-and-white," says Uzi with satisfaction, having nagged for months to obtain the coveted sketches.

Writers may spend all day doing pieces, but sitting down to draw a sketch for printing is a rare occasion for most writers.

"You'd think everybody would want to participate in a book like this, but gathering the material was harder than you'd think," says Uzi.

A few contributors:
• Ador, from Stockholm, is a pioneer of the attractively ugly style that was launched in Scandinavia in the mid-90s.
• Bates, from Denmark, is one of the world's most famous graffiti writers and lies in the foreground of Scandinavian graffiti. He is a member of several graffiti crews such as COD and WCA from the United States.
• Disey is just as important to Swedish graffiti as Ingmar Bergman was to Swedish film.
• Egs is possibly the best and most important writer in Finland.
• Nug's clear graphic style has changed the way graffiti is made and has had a huge impact on Sweden and the rest of the world.
• Que is a member of the Stockholm graffiti group Writers United Football Club (WUFC). He seldom sketches, but contributes a humorous drawing of graffiti as a game of cat and mouse to the book.
• Uzi, from WUFC, has written graffiti on walls and trains around the world since the mid-80s.

USA: In summer 2008, you can get this from Last Gasp in San Francisco CA.

Born in the Bronx

A Visual Record of the Early Days of Hip Hop

Edited by Johan Kugelberg

Photographs by Joe Conzo
Foreword by Afrika Bambaataa
Original Flyer Art by Buddy Esquire
Timeline by Jeff Chang

Born in the Bronx is a striking anthology of Hip Hop's baby steps. Not only does it capture the emergence of a burgeoning culture but also the fashion and character of the surrounding community. From rare photographs of MC's and DJs to records, flyers, and other ephemera, writer Johan Kugelberghas pulled together the scattered remains of a movement that never has its eye on posterity. The book includes the improvisational artwork of previously unpublished street flyers of the era, Polaroids buried for decades in basements across the Bronx, and testimonials from the most scholarly historians of Hip Hop culture - the legends and pioneers who lived it! Through Born in the Bronx,Joe Conzo(described by The New York Times as "the chronicler who took hip hop's baby pictures") presents a unique cross-section of an explosive and experimental time in music history.

- Hip Hop's first photographer, Joe Conzo provides the majority of images of legends and urban scenes from 1977-1982. Additional photos were contributed by fellow pioneering documentarians Charlie Ahearn and Henry Chalfant.

- Photos feature The Cold Crush Brothers, Treacherous 3, Afrika Bambaataa, Busy Bee, Run DMC, Wayne "The Hip Hop Ventriliquist" and Charlie, Fantastic Romantic, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Funky Four + 1, Kool DJ AJ Scratch, GrandWizzard Theodore and more.

- Flyers created by Buddy Esquirefeature Hip Hop jams from 1978-1985. Obscure flyers advertise early Hip Hop jams in Brooklyn, Queens and even Connecticut!

- Essays were contributed by legends: GrandMaster Caz, JDL, Joe Conzo, Mare 139,GrandWizzard Theodore, LA Sunshine and Jorge "Fabel" Pabon plus a poem by DJ Disco Wiz and an interview with Buddy Esquire.

- The hard cover is embossed. The dust cover unfolds to reveal a poster: "The Hip Hop Map of the Bronx" by Joe Conzo and Tony Tone.

artyfucked – sketch & street art journal

Neubaugasse 51-3-7, 1070 Vienna, Austria

Issue 1: German, English
Vienna & Rimini

"artyfucked" documents the different artifacts of urban worlds (sketches, graffiti, cartoons) as well as making this form of art more popular and public opinion more sensitive.

"artyfucked" shows work of a variety of different sketchers and their styles as well as collected urban art work. Not in a typical way as we know it from other graffiti zines. All collected "acts of vandalism" are prepared and edited in a way so the reader will see only the artifact itself and reflect it more as a thought, opinion and artwork of it's artist. Each zine is produced in sketchbook style and comes with some excellent stickers as a bonus!

"artyfucked" is the first printed sketch and street art journal. It shows masterpieces of the biggest modern galleries from Casablanca up to Molotow. Maybe you find our artwork here as well.

Côté mur, une large place est faite au groupe MCZ alias Montreuil City Zoo, basé sur la périphérie Est de Paris. Nous découvrirons également la ville de Cherbourg en Normandie, ainsi qu’un dossier complet consacré au peintre CHILE, graffant lui aussi côté Est, mais de la France, à Strasbourg.

Art in Consequence: Advanced Vandalizm

With its rebirth in contemporary pop culture as an appreciated, embraced and oft-utilized art form with a seemingly ever-growing body of practitioners and adherents, how can graffiti escape the known trappings of widespread acceptance, avoid becoming awash with clichéd forms? How can it dodge stagnation as it has authority for so long? By providing a window into an avant-garde constantly pushing the boundaries of graffiti in an effort to maintain its relevance and vitality as a force of aesthetic and cultural provocation, stimulation and dissidence, Art in Consequence offers some answers to those very questions and hints at what the future of graffiti may bring. The book and DVD take the reader on a trip to selected scenes where beauty and absurdity meet, documenting actions where some of those very answers are manifested in the form of shapes and colors, signs and wonders, all forged out of necessity by their creators.

Stockholm graffiti writers in new book of portraits

In 1207, the graffiti writers of Stockholm are portrayed for the first time. In a journey from suburb to inner city, they display their own personal Stockholm. They are heroes in their own world.

Stockholm has been decorated by graffiti writers for more than twenty years. Now, for the first time, the people behind graffiti allow themselves to be portrayed. 1207 presents more than 50 of Stockholm’s most active and legendary graffiti writers. Photographer Torkel Sjöstrand has followed them and photographed them on their walks through the city for three years. From Spånga to Norsborg, Södertälje to Ekerö, suburb to inner city. In tunnels and on railroad tracks, or overlooking a magnificent vista of the city. Graffiti writers are fascinated by the places many people don’t notice. 1207 is a document of a small group of people who risk their own well-being for an art form that is constantly pilloried by politicians and the authorities. We are offered a different depiction of Stockholm, and a unique document of its graffiti writers. Moreover, all the writers have written their tag in the book. 1207 is the police code for destruction of property through graffiti.

Torkel Sjöstrand is a photographer and editor for Underground Productions magazine. He has previously contributed to such books as Overground, Writers United and Gates of Graffiti.

Essay by Jacob Kimvall, art theoretician and an authority on graffiti. Foreword by Irok, Stockholm graffiti writer.

Uncommissioned Art

An A-Z of Australian Graffiti by Christine Dew

On the streets of Australian cities there are conversations occurring in paint in public spaces. Graffiti, stencil and street art are immediate and ephemeral. Yet the same media is gaining worldwide currency, with many art galleries collecting and showing these works.

This illustrated A-Z combines beautiful colour images from Australia's thriving graffiti and street art culture, interviews with some of Australia's most important graffiti and street artists, analysis of the history and evolution of the scene and discussion of urban planning, community and freedom of speech raised by graffiti's presence in public space.

Uncommissioned Art: An A-Z of Australian Graffiti offers new ways to look at street art. It will contribute to local, national and international conversations about art and design, popular culture and urban planning.

Chris Dew is a Senior Lecturer in Gender Studies and an Australian Research Council Associate in the History Program at La Trobe University in Melbourne. She is also a photographer interested in landscape, memory and place. Her photographs have been exhibited in Melbourne's Counihan Gallery and in many print publications. She is also a consultant to local government and community organisations on graffiti-related matters.

[This book is an excellent survey of Australian graffiti art that includes most of the right people and good examples of their work. It's a huge, well-produced volume, sure to be a collector's item. - Susan]

It Ate Billy on Christmas

by Roman Dirge and Steven Daily

It would have been a Christmas like any other for little Lumie and her horrible, terrible, obnoxious, awful bully of a brother Billy. But then a funny little monster appeared and ate Billy right up! Lumie knows it's not really a good thing to let a monster eat your brother, but she can't help but notice that things are, in fact, much nicer now that he's gone. Now that things are looking up a little in her world, Lumie has to decide what to do with her new little monster friend, and - most importantly - what she's going to feed him.

Photos from Icepick on Flickr

ICEPICK is a book based on icelandic Street Art. it portrays juicy graphic collages and illustrations made by the graphic designer Thordis Claessen. The book Icepick has been five years in the making, and is published by Gingkopress. Icepick was recently introduced with a show in Urbis Gallery in Manchester, UK (ongoing may - aug 07)

Because of its location between mainland Europe and America, Iceland has indeed a mixed culture. Therefore its street art has a unique flavour, where street artists invent new and interesting forms of borderline art.

ICEPICK is a roughly 220 page graphic creation, showing Icelandic graffiti and street art in various forms. Full colur pieces, stickers, stencils and political statements, all as if put in a blender and out comes a bursting mixture. Iceland has mostly highlighted for its music scene in the past. Here is something else to be explored from this weird and tiny island - where street artists are apparently quite creative. The street art featured in ICEPICK covers a wide range of themes and subject matter from traditional Icelandic icons to sheep, Vikings, fantastic gothic creations dreamt up during long Icelandic nights and colorful graffiti pieces that evoke the New York street art scene.

Keep in mind that the cold can bite fingers and nose quite hard when making big pieces in Iceland, but that does´n´t seem to be a problem to the street art vikings.

Most artists featured in Icepick are of course Icelandic, plus work from three guest artists including "Mike The Flower Guy" (USA) and Akaysim + Adams (SWE). So sink your teeth in this juicy book and look out for the Icelandic ICEPICK, available in bookstores worldwide.

Roman Dirge and Steven Daily set sail with Peter the Pirate Squid


We all find inspiration in the strangest places. Artists are inspired by stains on the ceiling, writers by misheard conversations. And now, from Roman Dirge, creator of Lenore (and we're a little afraid to guess what that was inspired by) comes a salty tale of a seaborne squid who draws his life mission from... pirates.

Peter the Pirate Squid pairs Dirge's writing talents with the keen artistic abilities of Steven Daily, telling the tale of an eight-legged cephalopod who wants nothing more than to rule his seventh of a sea with an iron hand - er, tentacle. And so, with a faithful crew of oysters, seahorses, crabs and other eyepatch-minded denizens of the deep, Peter sets forth in search of booty, baubles and grog-toting adventure!

The same size as a Little Golden Book, Peter the Pirate Squid is sure to be a hit with existing Lenore fans, younger readers, and kids of all ages.

Dirge says that after a decade of publishing the multimedia hit Lenore with SLG, the step to children's books (albeit children's books with unique sensibilities) comes naturally.

"Ya know, I like pirates and I like squids. It just seemed like it needed to happen," said Dirge. Steven is such an incredible artist and I'm proud to shove his work into more eye balls."

"Creating this world has been so challenging and fun. I have always wanted to work on a pirate story. When Roman had the idea of taking this Peter character, and make a book out of him, ideas just started to 'flow like Neptune's beard,'" Daily said. "Roman is a brilliant working with him is amazing."

Peter and his fellow subaquatic swashbucklers will live by the sword in July 2007. Peter the Pirate Squid will be a 32-page, 7.5" x 7.5" black-and-white storybook and will retail for $4.95. It is available now at comic book stores through Diamond Comics and is available on SLG's website, SLG - Peter the Pirate Squid, and

Gates Of Graffiti

Graffiti has moved from the trains to the streets. Doors are the new canvases. Gates Of Graffiti show doors from New York, Berlin, Copenhagen and Stockholm.

Doors make a good frame for the faster forms of graffiti and street art such as tags, stencils and posters. In a doorway one can sneak in and execute its art without being noticed. Gates Of Grafftit is the first book to focus on tags, their design and how writers communicate with them. It is an unique chance to understand what tags are about and how beautiful they can be. It explores graffiti on doors in New York, Berlin, Copenhagen, Stockholm and other cities.

The texts are written by graffiti writers Smith (NYC), Punk (Gothenburg), Clint 176 (Berlin) och Don Juan (Copenhagen) who open-hearted tells the fascinating stories behind the names that adorn the doors of major cities. Photo by Björn Almqvist, Tobias Barenthin Lindblad, Malcolm Jacobson and Torkel Sjöstrand whos earlier work includes Overground, Writers United and Dom kallar oss klottrare and graffiti magazine Underground Productions.

Burning New York features contemporary works by genre defying graffiti writers, an interesting combination of those who are just beginning to achieve prominence and others who have been honing their skills for decades. "From the ashes of the 60s to the dust of Ground Zero, New York graffiti has magnetized and polarized, rocked and shocked. When the hot-eyed and restless ride the city's edge to turn dead walls into worlds of color, motion, and passion, Jim and Karla Murray capture their visions and voices with a fire to match. Don't blink." Jeff Chang, author of Can't Stop Won't Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation

There's an Octopus Under My Bed



This first children's book by Scribe and Dean Blase is delightful. Scribe is Kansas City's favorite character artist and he's the artist in residence at Children's Mercy Hospital there.

The story follows the adventures of a little green bunny named Elijah as he learns life lessons about adaptation and bravery from his new friend, Manos, the octopus. The first page of the book pays tribute to Scribe's graffiti roots by making a game out of different graffiti artists' lettering. Will you be able to figure out how these distorted images spell "octopus"? Throughout the book you'll find hidden images from other artists.

video clip of the space - Quicktime, German

Graffiti artists welcome!!

Galeristin Prema (26), for which "PremArts" is named, comes from Berlin and studies Visual and Performing Music at Brighton University. For Prema The gallery presents the possibility of cooperating with artists worldwide to plan exhibitions.

Galeristin Prema (26), nach der "PremArts" benannt ist, kommt aus Berlin und studiert Visual and Performing Arts-Music an der Brighton University. Die Galerie ist für Prema die Möglichkeit, mit Künstlern aus der ganzen Welt zu kooperieren und gemeinsam Ausstellungen zu planen.

phone + 44 7952643091.

PremArts is an Art-Workshop and Gallery, located in the central south district of Berlin-Mitte, called Berlin Kreuzberg . Xberg is one of the best-known localities (Ortsteile) of Berlin, famous for its nightlife and its political leftness, thrives on its diverse cultures and is an attractive area for younger, alternative crowds, cosmoplitan students, young professionals and a very high amount of immigrants.

A few minutes by walk you get to the East Side Gallery, an international memorial for freedom. It is a 1.3km long section of the Berlin Wall. The gallery consists of approximately 106 paintings by artists from all over the world, painted on the east side of the Berlin Wall. It is possibly the largest and everlasting open air gallery in the world.

The Kreuzberg flair of an art and culture scenery, growing there steadily since the beginning of the nineties, is interacting with an increasingly big music business, like MTV, Universal, POPKOMM Musicfair, and the third generation of young people with migrant background from all over specially from turkey and south Europe countries. Its surrounded by international culture of subcultural underground pubs and many but only small shopping facilities. Street scenery as well as shops, enterprises and population of the quarter are changing constantly. The PremArts Gallery and Art-Workshop intentionally puts itself into this cultural focus to make use of it and to interfere.

PremArts as an Art-Workshop and Gallery offers to artists and other interested people a forum for encounters and exchange in which contemporary new artistic contents and modes of expression are elaborated publicly. The Art-Workshop is neither a typical commercial gallery nor a private studio. Rather, we understand it as self-propagating aesthetic "work in progress" that intends to make perceivable the artistic process, that factually occurs in life, thus searching for the 1:1 congruence between life and art. We understand this work as a form of life art, as a search for real time and reality with the means of art. We invite all artists and other people to participate in this work. Individuals as well as groups can embark in the Art-Workshop on the search of the interface between art and life, without or with us. The room is available to artists, for example, for jointly entering an experimental process, for visual and performing arts, action, concerts, films, theater, exhibitions, seminars, and other topics from allover the world.

Presently the "PremArts-Gallery and Arts-Workshop" is organized and structured by Suprema (Prema) and sometimes for digital sounds assisted by Namistyle, (Nami ) both students for Visual and Performing Arts at the Brighton University, who individually and as a duo contribute to the PremArts Gallery" with their own artistic work. The " Art-Workshop" as well as the Gallery are not fixed locally only; rather they form a forum that, due to the effort of the above mentioned operating artists and other participants, grows also at many other locations, for example by communicating personally and through the homepage and webblog.

Million Dollar Vandal


A exclusive... Advanced copies of MILLION DOLLAR VANDAL. Published by AKA Projects, and designed by the ALSO KNOWN AS Crew, comes this all out assault to the senses. 'Million Dollar Vandal' is the uncensored story about the life and times of Brooklyn's prodigal son, Desa MTA. For the first time, we get inside Desa's head and his story gets officially told from the beginning. Exceptionally well written, this book chronicles in detail how Desa became the symbol of New York's war on graffiti during the 1990's, and details the repurcussions that came with being the NYC Vandal Squads public enemy number one. It's also an intimate look into his personal life, and reflects back on the milestones that formed the person he is today, including the death of VE (RIP), his near-fatal accident, and his tumultuous graffiti career being pursued by the Vandal Squad, and state prosecuters.

'Million Dollar Vandal' is full of cinematic-type landscape photos, exclusive action shots, and personal portraits that range from trains to tunnels, platforms to rooftops, and from the streets of New York to the house he lives in. Beautifully photographed and also designed by ALSO KNOWN AS, this book has all the attention to detail and amazing printing techniques you've come to expect out of that crew including fluroescent and metallic inks, amazing packaging, and enough eye candy to keep this book on your coffe table permenantly. As a exclusive, the first 250 copies are individually signed, and the first 100 orders come with an un-announced bonus compliments of Desa. A definite must have!

Hardcover, 8.25" x 10.25", 192 full-color pages, spot metallic and fluorescent inks, custom packaging. Individually Signed by Desa.

30 hours of Graffiti Art

This marathon of street art happened on the 16th and 17th of September of 2006 in the train station Domingos de Morais of the CPTM.

With support of the public transport company and the sponsorship of the Colorgin, Tiger, Profile, Loctobo, FBC, 3ºMundo and the Séc. of State of the Culture.

The event made a mark on the graffiti scene with one of the greatest walls in the world. The painting started Saturday morning at 10am, went all night, and finished Sunday at 4pm.

With good scaffolding the 150 grafiteiros covered more than 1 kilometer of wall. Organized by Binho Ribeiro and Bonga, this challenge showed how much the artists can achieve when they organize and create work that before only existed in dreams.

This project is a great conquest that reflects the maturity of and respect for graffiti culture in Brazil and the world.

Heavy Metal

[Writers in action, fabulous photography by Fakso - Susan]

Heavy Metal by Alex Fakso reconstructs the underground epic of a handful of credible dreamers who communicate only with each other, regardless of praise or criticism. Alex Fakso's photography, its involvement and its extraordinary evocative power, performs institutional task: it helps us learn and, if not share, certainly try and understand. Giovanna Calvenzi

AlexFakso was born in 1977 in Bassano del Grappa (It). At around the age of 13, he discovers the skate & graffiti world. He enrolls as a student of the Arts Institute of Cittadella (Padova, It) to attend the graphic design and photography courses. Such studies would help him perfect his technique and would inspire him to pursue his own research ailmed at the underground photography.

A lot was going on around the entire Italian peninsula during the 90s. Every city had its own writers paint the trains which were thereafter traveling round the country spreading the phenomena and being a great opportunity for graffiti artists to express themselves to the fullest.

Just like most writers of that period, Fakso preserves a memory of his graffiti on trains and train-reisers through photographs taken by himself. But a simple picture of a train does not satisfy his artistic ego. Alex did not want to loose track of all those nights spent in between trains, all those sensations felt...

Therefore, during the years he observed such a reality through a new prospective, experimenting new framings, new techniques under a profound study of contrasts between light and shadow.

In 1998, freshly back from NY, in 1998, Alex finally acquires awareness about the evocative power of his photos.

The silence, the neglect of the underground tunnels, the entrances and exits of these galleries being the only contact with the outer worlds, are the impressive scenario of his protagonists. Alex is now based in Milan.

Heavy Metal tells with authentic vividness the atmospheres and the sensations of a parallel world that breaths and moves through the darkest bends of our cities. The book will be in sale starting from November 15th and it was published by DAMIANI EDITORE. The introductions were written by Giovanna Calvenzi and Jamel Shabaaz.

Vibraciones II

“Vibraciones Dvd” is part of a wider project that tries to show to a big audience the most artistic faces of Hip Hop culture. In Graffiti, Breakdance, Dj-s, Beatbox...Focusing in the process of creation and how it works with the urban Enviroment.

Volume Two is 170 minutes of dinamic editing supported in a dope, original, Soundtrack that goes from Drum´n`Bass to Flamenco. And organized as a travel to some cities or special places: Paris, London, Koln, Lisbon, Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Granada. Showing Graffiti pieces on its own urban context and adding an interview with a representative writer of the area.

This second Dvd got a more documentary point of view with interviews to MARTHA COOPER, SEAK (Special Report) ASTEKZ, COPE2, HANEM

We are looking for two main concepts: first is to give a kind of ´educational´ information to an audience outside ´Hip Hop´culture. This in Spain is a need because the Media didn´t do it. Like that, people in Spain can take a look to artists in other countries. And people in Europe and worldwide can watch to the progression in Spain too.

And second, to preserve for the next years some of the Art we can find in our streets at the moment. Doing an interesting film that is becoming popular and respected into the Hip Hop and Urban Art movements.

First DVD:
[From Spain, this DVD shows why we should all go to graffiti jams in Europe and South America. This 13-part, 140 minute extravaganza features digital video of amazing productions, beat boxing, (great) DJing, B-Boying, and and interview with Daim in English. There are very few words in this video, making it ideal for international audiences. Covers Belgiam, Spain, Germany, France, Holland, Brazil, Argentina.]

CITYarts, the Award Winning Youth Public Arts Organization, Announces Its Newest Project

"Safe Spaces" Mural at Claremont Park in the Bronx, as part of the ENGAGING GRAFFITI KIDS in CREATION, NOT DESTRUCTION MURAL PROGRAM

CITYarts is transforming the walls surrounding Claremont Pool in Claremont Park in the Bronx into an urban oasis. The program began mid-July with workshops designed to engage local youth in conversations about the effects of graffiti and the issues concerning them and their community. Under the guidance of professional artists, the youth are creating a mural inspired by those conversations. Painting of the mural, entitled "Safe Spaces," will continue through September.

"This mural project is the first under CITYarts‚ 'Engaging Graffiti Kids in Creation, not Destruction‚ program. We will create murals in each of the five boroughs, giving youth a chance to contribute positively to their community," said Tsipi Ben-Haim, Executive and Artistic Director.

Artists Kathleena Howie-Garcia and Ellis Gallagher were selected for the project. Gallagher (@copy;Ellis G.) is a former graffiti artist "who is now keeping his art on the right side of the law," (NY Times, 12/10/05). Howie-Garcia (Lady K-Fever) currently teaches art at the Bronx Museum. The artists‚ combined experience and mentorship is directing impressionable youth into productively channeling their creativity.

Founded in 1968, CITYarts‚ mission is to empower youth by bringing them together with professional artists to create public art that addresses civic and social issues, impacts their lives, and transforms their communities. CITYarts has sponsored and facilitated more than 260 projects to date working with over 500 artists and 10,000 young people to date.   

Each project aims to create public art where participation in the arts is limited; to develop social, artistic and educational skills for children in underserved communities; to reduce youth violence by creating positive alternatives to the street; to engage youth in discussion on issues that affect them, their communities, and the world; to promote understanding of ethnic and racial diversity; to encourage community pride; to kick off economic development and neighborhood revitalization; and to provide employment for professional artists. Every project brings pride to its creators and vigor to its surroundings, kicking off economic development, new playgrounds, and youth programs.

* New Jersey: Call for participation

I'm an artist and [text] writer in BK, NY. I'm involved in the beginning stages of a project called "Satellite Island" for a publication in the city of Den Haag in the Netherlands. It will cover all variations on the theme of the Island in contemporary culture; from the reality television program Survivor to the outrageous luxury island communities currently under construction off the cost of the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates - The Palm and The World

I've been interested in Paterson, NJ because of its geography - both man made and natural. It is surrounded on three sides by the Passaic River and on the south by I-80, making it a kind of conceptual island. I'm also drawn to its history and the implications of its loss of manufacturing on the population there making it an economic island left to fend for itself.

I'm looking for someone who is from there or lives there to show me around or even possibly be involved in the project with me. I'm looking specifically for a graffiti artist but I'm also open to others who are from there and interested in this project. I wondering if you would know anyone who could help? I can send more detailed information if there is interest. Please contact me at:

Irish Graffiti Wanted for Research Study

I'm currently completing research for an archaeological study of graffiti at University College Dublin and wanted to know if you would be willing to put out a call for photographs of graffiti in and around Dublin. I would need the photograph, the location it was shot at and the date; all photos will be cited.

If you're interested in participating in this study, email me for more info. I'm arguing that graffiti is a valuable archaeological resource often misunderstood by the general public. By shedding some light on it as a social tool, I hope to dispel some of the negative publicity it has gotten thus far. Thanks for your help!

Freight Train Graffiti

[This is an amazing book!!]

The publication of FREIGHT TRAIN GRAFFITI (Abrams; $29.95; May 2006), the only definitive history of this remarkable art form, features 1,000 full-color images of artworks and in-depth interviews with more than 125 train artists and "writers." Hundreds of never-before-seen photographs span the style's evolution. The book presents the fascinating history of graffiti culture and includes the first-ever published history of "monikers," the precursors of graffiti, developed by hobos and rail workers to communicate en route.

The authoritative text from an all-star team of authors provides unprecedented perspective. Roger Gastman, who is based in Los Angeles, is co-publisher of the pop culture magazine SWINDLE, and has been involved with graffiti for 15 years. In 1993 he painted his first freight train. Darin Rowland, absorbed with both trains and graffiti, currently plays an active role in graffiti and other street culture in Philadelphia. The work of Ian Sattler, has appeared in a number of books and national magazines. He lives in Washington, DC.

Download English PDF brochure for Darco Code Art

The book is very professional, just what you'd expect from one of Europe's style masters.

"Depuis son premier graffiti sur un mur gris de la banlieue parisienne en 1984, c'est son insatisfaction constante qui a poussé Darco à parcourir le monde pour peindre sans relâche. Il affûtera son style avec les années et les expériences jusqu'à devenir une référence pour toute une génération d'artistes. Pour Darco, le writing, est un paradoxe, un mouvement à la fois chaotique et structuré, capable de s'émanciper de ses propres règles ; un phénomène insaisissable en perpétuelle évolution qui effraie les profanes. Cet ouvrage retrace plus de vingt ans d'œuvres sauvages et commandées, aux quatre coins de la planète et sur tous types de supports. Darco nous ouvre les portes de son univers secret. "

ttsss - Pixacao

TTSSS… – a graphic manifestation

Extracting “notes”, from the “historical” diary of a graphic artist – a pixador – was how this book came to existence. Boleta, who put together this volume, is a member of the first generation of Vício, one of the oldest and most active graphic-manifestation gangs in São Paulo. The diary dates from 1988 to 1998. During this period, Boleta gathered signatures, tags*, pixos*, grapixos*, tags*, throw-ups*, folhinhas*, stickers*, symbols and drawings. These personal notes are a testimonial of how Pixo gradually came to life in São Paulo.

We have reproduced pages of this collection of autographs either in their totality or in detail. The photos were the next step. The book’s photographic work reveals how “Pixographics” defines the chaotic mood of the city, yet allowing us to see through the chaos, where beauty lays - multiplying in extension and height – allover the city. Editora do Bispo sees a genuine, contemporary, 21st century form of communication in Pixação*, where a gifted and original graphic creation emerges. We have decoded alphabets, logotypes, and drawings from the diary. These symbols, if seen detached from their context, reveal original and sophisticated graphic creations.

Ttsss... does not intend to be an encyclopedia of graphic art, decoding all its symbols and nuancing its forms of expression. It is, however, the editorial introduction to Pixo. Ttsss… is an important compilation that shows a specific stream of young artists - artists who predominantly come from an underprivileged social segment. Their social condition is, nonetheless, the ingredient that makes their symbolograms one of the most original urban phenomenons in Brazil – or perhaps in the entire western hemisphere - in recent years.

Book of Tags

We are delighted to announce the presentation of our most recent publication, The Book of Tags, on January 27 at the Palais de Tokyo Bookstore from 7pm to 9pm with the participation of Dropdrop Agency, Stefano Scialli, Marco Valle and Marco Bruzzone (authors and artistic directors of the project). This book, dedicated to tags, analyses this phenomenum of urban expression et groups the texts of Hassan Massoudi, Buro Destruct, Barry Mc Gee alias Twist, Olivier Stak et Stefano Boeri. We hope to see you then.

The Book of Tags presents the personal signatures of 150 writers coming from 20 different countries throughout the world. The selection includes some of the most influential tags belonging to pioneers in the graffiti world as well as others that represent innovative and experimental calligraphic styles. The tags are displayed in alphabetical order, one per page correlated with a caption to facilitate the deciphering of the different calligraphic styles. DropDrop's purpose is to create a 1980's style graffiti "blackbook" object, simple and essential in the layout and rich in content. The first section of The Book of Tags consist of short introductory essays by five prestigious individuals working in the fields of design, calligraphy, graffiti and architecture : Buro Destruct, a designer collective from Bern, Barry McGee (AKA Twist), a contemporary artist with a strong graffiti background, Olivier Stak (artist and chief editor of World Signs), Hassan Massoudi (a contemporary Arab calligrapher) and Stefano Boeri (architect, urbanist and director of Domus from Milan). The publication ends with a black and white action photo gallery compiled and edited by DropDrop in an effort to show the beauty and energy of the act of tagging in its original context.

"Schablone Berlin" (Berlin stencils)

Kyle Schlesinger with Caroline Koebel

"Schablone Berlin" is an artists' book as well as a book of documentation, presenting stencil graffiti from the streets of Germany's most international metropolis. The book consists of over 100 color photographs showing not only the graffiti, but also its placement within the confines of urban space. The 40 page introduction examines the semiotic and performative aspects of stencils as a populist form of writing within the contexts of art history, media and urban anthropology. Post-Face by anthropologist and ethno-poet Dennis Tedlock.

Fuzz One: A Bronx Childhood

VINCENT FEDORCHAK Fuzz One: A Brooklyn Childhood

A Bronx Childhood
By Vincent Fedorchak.
FUZZ ONE is the staggering, outrageous, true story of a raucous and wholly unsupervised childhood in the Bronx of the 1970s. Through Vincent Fedorchak's hilarious deadpan narration of a wild existence wrought with adolescent braggadocio, we are taken on a rough journey through a deteriorating Bronx jungle-wonderland where property value was plummeting and kids ruled the streets. Whether executing a bizarre graffiti mission in another borough with all the insanity of a special ops soldier, fearlessly tracking down Satan-worshippers camped out in the old castles in Van Cortlandt Park, or being the first white boy inducted into the infamous Ebony Dukes street gang, Fedorchak never flinches. ~Filled with hundreds of never-before-published photos of graffiti art and Bronx cityscapes, as well as first-hand accounts of the exploits of legendary graffiti artists such as DONDI, BLADE, COMET, NOC 167, BOOTS 119, and others, FUZZ ONE is a guided tour of a heretofore uncharted Bronx underworld. This epic tale of youth gone awry fully captures an important era of cultural upheaval in New York City's history. It is set apart from other memoirs via the inclusion of more than 300 images, nearly all in color, that give the volume strong historical, anthropological, and cultural appeal.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Dirty South Street Art

I'm a [text] writer in Houston who's working on a book about Dirty South Street Art.

I've already made some contacts, but I'd like to include as many Third Coast artists as possible.

Is there anyone out there who would like his or her work to be considered?

I want this to be a slick book (kind of like Tristan Manco's, if you're familiar), so I need to get a couple of sample chapters ready in order to show potential publishers.

Basically, right now I'm just feeling out interest. I eventually would need some high-res images of your work, and I'd also send you a questionnaire of sorts to fill out, so I could write up a couple of paragraphs about your work.

Any artist whose work was in the sample chapters would probably be included in the final book, since his or her work would've been a part of what the publishers liked.

Oh, and there would be no need to reveal your identity.

As for me, I'm a staff writer for the Houston Press, an alternative weekly. Here's something I've written on our scene.

If you know of any other Third Coast street artists who you think would be good for this, please pass along this message and, if you can, send me a link to their Web site.

I can be reached at "KEITH dot PLOCEK at GMAIL dot COM"

"I was just looking at your website and thought some of your viewers/readers might be interested in submitting an essay to This I Believe, National Public Radio's series of personal essays that airs Mondays, alternating between Morning Edition and All Things Considered.

The goal of this project is to inspire reflection and deep thinking about one's beliefs and core values. The aim is not to persuade Americans to agree on the same beliefs, but to encourage respect for beliefs different from one's own, something especially critical in our divided nation right now.

Here's a link to our website, where visitors can read or listen to essays that have already aired, and get information on how to write and submit one themselves:

Submitting an essay does not guarantee that it will be chosen, but we want to encourage many different people, with diverse beliefs and interests, to submit essays for consideration.

Art in Cities

Art is always present everywhere and it doesn't come out from the direction an institution or society wants to give it; the works here are short personal notes, fascinating big projects or interesting examples of protest. This way the individual artists use the city as an art gallery through their graffitis, posters, stickers, stencils, etc.

Art in Cities (ON THE WALL-hunted art) gathers visual fragments in an exhibition that encloses the city in the five continents, a global summary of the urban landscape, where the exhibition area itself becomes subject of an exposition.

The photos on display (presently about 3500, but the number is continuously growing), which can be sent by anyone, are testifying of an "illegal" art which is often anonymous too. Marconi Gallery is the first in Italy to welcome this synthesis of the varied urban realities in his room.

Writers United

The WUFC Story: A Swedish Graffiti Crew

The book Writers United paints an intimate portrait of the members of one of the world’s most notorious graffiti crews, Writers United Football Club (WUFC). Six members, with entirely different personalities and one common goal. Since the creation of WUFC in an indoor soccer hall in the Stockholm suburb of Nacka eleven years ago, they have written their name on thousands of trains and walls across Europe. Like rock musicians, graffiti writers invest their work with style and attitude, and just like in any successful band, each member of WUFC has a specific role. Here, hyperactive graffiti writers Uzi and Que take the lead.

Journalist Björn Almqvist and photographer Emil Hagelin have been following WUFC and some of their friends for several years. The reader will encounter a new world through exhaustive interviews and direct reports. We follow the writers from making preparations in their homes to descending into dark tunnels to write. They risk injury and fines all year round to see their name on the trains. Their lifestyle can be hard to understand. Why do they write, how do they see their work, and what sort of people are they really? The text and atmospheric, highly-charged photographs in Writers United offer a better idea of what graffiti is really all about. As photographer Emil Hagelin says:

“Most graffiti books concentrate on the pieces themselves. We wanted to show what their lives look like, and how graffiti appears on Joe Blow’s wall or the subway train he takes to work every morning.”

Writers United provides a unique insight into graffiti as art and lifestyle. This is the first time such an intimate portrait has been made of a graffiti crew.

Foreword by Martha Cooper, photographer of the books Subway Art (1984) and Hip Hop Files (2004).

Writers United is published by Dokument Förlag and will be available in shops from mid July 2005

Rammellzee, aside from being an Old School Graffiti Artist with works seen around the world was very much an early MC/Rap Pioneer of vocal styles. Some of which were taught to him by one of his partners from way back- Jamel - Z.

Styles like the "Gangsta Duck" (which he used on the infamous Jean Michel Basquiat produced BEAT BOP circa 1983), "WC Fields" (he used it in the movie Wild Style during his lyrically beyond performance with Shock Dell LIVE AT THE AMPHITHEATER circa 1982), and the "Tricky Dick" were all part of his arsenal.

His influence can be heard in countless rappers including The Beastie Boys and B-Real from Cypress Hill

Rammellzee is still active today unleashing futuristic Hip Hop, painting his style (called Iconoklast Panzerism), and performing all throughout the world.

Rammellzee was an important player in the initial crossover of hip-hop culture to the mainstream. He participated in hip-hop's earliest phases, though the bizarre edge his aggressively fanciful inventions brought to the original hip-hop style has been somewhat blunted by the dominance of the gangsta pose and its supposed "reality." Though he performed and recorded as an MC, Rammellzee achieved greater fame as a visual artist, with exhibitions in fine art venues of both North America and Europe. He began his art career "bombing" New York City subway trains, but the subway system influenced more than his artwork. Dynamite D, a conductor who rhymed boasts of the superior condition of his super clean D-train over the train's intercom, is named by Rammellzee as an early rap inspiration. Partnered with MCs Shock Dell and Jamal, Rammellzee participated in early hip-hop sound system battles, where he developed the "W.C. Fields" and "Gangsta Duck" voices originated by Jamal. Rammellzee employed the "Gangsta Duck" on "Beat Bop," a dense dialogue with K-Rob, nominally produced by the late painter Jean Michel Basquiat, and released on Profile Records. "Beat Bop" was the result of some improvised role playing, with Rammellzee playing a pimp and K-Rob in the character of a schoolboy. The resulting rap is the best and most sustained example on record of Rammellzee's flights of wordplay, fantasy, and street surrealism. He also appeared in the film Wildstyle and can be heard on the soundtrack LP of the movie. Though mostly concentrating on his visual art, he has collaborated on several progressive hip-hop projects, most often with Bill Laswell. ~ Richard Pierson, All Music Guide

Graffiti Limbo

"Graffiti Limbo" is a one hour documentary that offers a unique insight into what may be the ultimate expression of public art. Graffiti is a vibrant combination of art and urban dissent that emerged from the streets. "Graffiti Limbo" looks at the street origins of graffiti art, where illegal tagging, bombing, and throw ups are a part of its subversive essence. The documentary illustrates the tension among those writers who seek a legitimate outlet for their art form and those who would arrest all writers as gang-inspired vandals. It is set against the back drop of "Paint Louis", one of the largest international graffiti festivals. Graffiti writers from throughout the world gather in St. Louis, Missouri, to take advantage of one of the few legitimate forums in which they express their art. During the three-day annual festival the city’s two-mile-long flood wall becomes a canvas for some of the world’s premier artists and crews.

This documentary is distributed by TVF International and has aired on Discovery's "Civilization", screened at Cinema St. Louis's Summer Showcase, and has been broadcast in Australia, New Zealand, Israel and elsewhere

[This video is really quite good. It would serve as a great introduction to graffiti art in the classroom. Those of us who were at Paint Louis 2001, the last year it occurred, will notice that many of the excellent productions done then did not make it into the documentary, most notably the AWR monumental pieces (with the exception of a few quickies of Sever's, in progress), it is still a good effort to document the largest graffiti event ever held in the USA and a worthy tribute to Phlo, the young St. Louis writer who lost his life that year in an unrelated train trestle accident. Great music too. - Susan]

Forgotten City


Chicago is notorious for being the first and continued stronghold city of the "Buff". Like every city, graffiti still remains an outlet, an escape, and an expression of liberation that is transcribed by many individuals through various forms of expressionistic creativity and mediums. Unfortunately, whether it may be through the means of vandalism or aesthetic print, much has been eradicated by non-stop sandblasts and strokes of cheap, brown paint. Forgotten City, a perfect name for the city of Chicago. But much is not forgotten and vandalism is still prevalent in the city. This film documents a minimum part of the work that is put out day by day by various artists and shows no matter how much the city blasts, the war is not over.

Featuring Chicago's top bombers, insides, train sides, clean trains, tunnels, interviews, transit lines, live footage, Meeting of Styles 2004, and some rowdy ass shit.

DAIM – daring to push the boundaries

To bring his name into harmony, Germany's 3D-virtuoso DAIM prefers to take graffiti in the »unusual« direction. It seems as if his four letters jump off the walls, explode onto canvases, explore natural environments, and come to life as sculptures.

In this printed gallery, DAIM's versatile techniques and range of artistic motives become clear: the strange glances of exotic fishes, a gas mask from different angles, complex abstractions of his name, acrylics here, drawings there, all executed with a master's control of color, light and shadow. When asked if he departs from traditional graffiti ideas, he answers:

"My aim is to show new sides of graffiti art. There will always be »writers« who paint illegally, but the number of graffiti artists who use new media and styles is steadily increasing. So there are new ideas alongside the old ones."

Now his work is been presented in a book with 108 pages.

Straight Lines


With this book, the two german writers Reso and ecb provide an insight into the surroundings their joint projects on walls have to offer. A joint effort (wich lasted 10years) led to the development of a particular and extremely diverse metaphorical language. Numerous photographies (on 128 pages) show how paintings with the spraycan conjoin with classical writing. By reviewing the single works, the attentive observer will repeatedly discover many new details and seemingly hidden cohesions.

"Homage to the Mexican Masters"

a mural dedicated to the Mexican painters who have influenced many young Chicanos' minds.

Location: Cesar Chavez and Arizona in East Los Angeles

We believe this mural can inspire cultural pride and educate the public about the Masters and their influence on the art world, (especially in the Latino community). This mural will feature Los Tres Grandes ( Rivera, Orozco and Siqueiros ) Frida Kahlo, Posada, Tamayo, Camarena and Dr. Atl.

What is interesting about this collaboration is that the mural is designed and will be painted by 7 contemporary aerosol artists (a.k.a. Graffiti artists) that have been influence by these Mexican historic figures. The artists are:

Zender, Nuke, Chose, Siner, Zuco, Scud, Emilioh, Shandu and Duce

Fuk Graff


If watching folks paint the Big Apple silver is your idea of a good time, you're in luck! Sh*t-talking hard boys demonstrate the proper use of the New York fat cap and discuss blunt force trauma. The Who's Who of New York bombing and what to wear while you do it. Interesting flix of color stuff and blackbook bombs but they move just a tad too quickly. You'll be leaning on the pause button for full effect. DVD includes a news report warning of the dangers of graffiti, featuring Korn and his crew, plus visual treats from Monk (Boston) and some tasty SPone, KR and Sacer. Scary. Rated R, I guess for "fuk" and the finger in your face the entire time you watch the video. Limited. DVD.

Teenagers from Marz

Your mom will hate this video, not because it's bad, but because it's a Bad Idea. Well a bewildering array of really bad ideas, actually. If you do any of the things shown (except for graffiti), you fail the intelligence test. Metal and hiphop soundtrack accompanies video of things that are sure to injure, kill, or incarcerate you and your friends.

This film answers the question: "What could you do if you had a megaphone, wheatpaste, skateboard, spraycans, wigs, video camera, and lots of drunk friends?" Irresponsible language, nudity, guns, drugs, slapstick, and cheap sexual innuendo of several flavors.

Graffiti content is Quite Good at times and consists mainly of throwups and postering punctuated by 'necks and 'nads until about halfway through, when some interesting freights roll through, with some local assistance. Later, some tasty walls appear.

Editing and production values are way better than we deserve, and it moves along at a brisk frenzy. Will Corsola rules. Guest-star Odorous Amongus from GWAR shows us how not to babysit. A hoot. (filmmakers, USA) (Canada)

In addition, I took the time to design a limited edition, 2 color, hand stenciled mailing case available only to those who get the book through the website or directly out of my hands.

9 of the finest Scandinavian graffiti writers!

The book Overground - 9 Scandinavia Graffiti Writers portraits some of the best and most wellknown graffiti writers from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

Scandinavia has been known for innovative and unique graffiti for at least a decade. Scandinavian writers are often represented in different graffiti magazines from all over the world. Their styles are original, progressive and sometimes minimalistic, an equivalent to the much respected Scandinavian design. 7 authors have made portraits of 9 of the most interesting Scandinavian graffiti writers. Subjects like creativity, driving forces and to work anonymously are discussed.

"Change is important" says Swedish writer Phily. Scandinavian graffiti finally has grown up. For the writers in Overground one important aspect of graffiti is to communicate their own thoughts through their work. That means that graffiti is constantly under change. The expressions pictured in Overground range from clean graphic works to naivistic, expressionistic and aggressive pieces and tags. Writing in public space means you encounter varied opinions from those who donít paint.

* Madrid and online

On sep. 11th, Madrid street-art activists organized an exposition using the advertising spaces public phones on the streets. The exposition was to launch the project TeGustaLoQueVes (DoYouLikeWhatYouSee) The idea was to promote the occupation of ad-spaces in bus stops, public phones and all places which are supposed to have a social function, and recover them for popular urban expression.

About 40 street artists took the original ads and distorted them with whatever non-comercial motive and technique they wanted.

On the 10th at night, they changed the ads on public phones on the whole street of Gran Via, downtown Madrid, and on the 11th. they walked through the expo, while people from Telefonica were beginning to take them away.

Also, a few months ago they made an urban act party (graffiti as protagonist) against the war, and they have quite a nice video about it: urbanact (click on "video" and download the quicktime .mov version)

Just Push the Button


Writing Metropolitano
Just Push the Button
di Stefano Monfeli e Monia Cappuccini
Edito da Stampa Alternativa
ISBN 88-7226-763-3
pp. 120
150 color illustr.
euro 20,00

"Writing metropolitano. Just Push the Button" is the second book concerning the culture of "writing" that Stampa Alternativa published after the international success of "Style: Writing from the Underground", published in 1996. The main subject of Just Push the Botton (JPB) is the Roman scene, here since the mid 1980 the local situation favoured the spread of the writing. The stories of other European writers are also described to show how this type of culture is reproducible in all the places where an underground can bring around the "Names". This book does not want to be a conclusive documentation rather a collection of testimonies and pictures about those places where the aerosol art was born and grown, making of Rome the "most bombed" city in Europe.

From the discovery of hip hop universe at the end of the '80s, to the earliest paintings over the railway "Roma-Lido" and the first breakers; from the squats and the Roma Nomentano station to the crawling into the subway lines at the beginning of the '90s; from the meeting with foreign writers, to the spreading over the whole railway network at the half of th last decade. Ice One, Crash Kid, Napal, Fab, 00199, Pane, Stand, Sugo, Joe, Nico, Etc-Trv, Jon, Ztk e gli stranieri Check, Fume, Milk, Sento, Sel, Set: at least three generations of writers alternate in redescribing the life of an underground city. Tangled human stories, which seal the inextricable relationship between writing and the metropolis, as in New York City in the '70s.

Writing: Urban Calligraphy and Beyond

By Markus Mai, Arthur Remke

[one of the best graffiti art books of the year - Susan]

Long ignored or belittled for its proximity to vandalism, graffiti has become a fundamental aspect of the modern city. In particular, it is writing, an offspring of the graffiti scene, that has left its mark on virtually every visual discipline existing today. Writing has become an invaluable influence and inspiration, especially in the realms of illustration, logo design, motion graphics and architecture.

This book represents the first comprehensive examination of writing -- what it is, how it's done, why it looks the way it does, what it influences and where it's developing. True to its subtitle "Urban Calligraphy and Beyond" this book includes Writers who work on the details of letters, words and alphabets as well as those who have moved beyond two dimensional surfaces to develop three dimensional objects or motion graphics. Yet others are included who, with a graphic design or art background, interact with Writing elements in a surprising or even playful way. The last chapter features artists who use Writing's approaches and "urban tactics", but whose messages have little to do with actual written calligraphy.

Transom: How It Works

We're looking for great radio -- things that are less heard, different angles, new voices, new ways of telling, and any other good pieces that haven't found another way onto public radio. Editors evaluate material more by what it does than what it is. Some questions they'll consider:

  • On the air, would it keep you by your radio until it's over?
  • Is the maker someone of talent who should be encouraged?
  • Does it push at the boundary of conventional radio in an exciting way?
  • Will it provoke fruitful discussion online?

Submissions can be stories, essays, home recordings, sound portraits, interviews, found sound, non-fiction pieces, audio art, whatever, as long as it's good listening. Material may be submitted by anyone, anywhere -- by citizens with stories to tell, by radio producers trying new styles, by writers and artists wanting to experiment with radio. As long as it hasn't already aired nationally, we'll consider it.

* QBert and DugOne do it again: New book and CD for kids

Turntable Timmy


Free Will Press is proud to announce the release of Turntable Timmy, written by Award winning children's book author Michael Perry and legendary artist Doug Cunningham. Included with the book is a rap-along CD with scratching by world-renowned turntablist DJ Qbert. It is the first-ever children's book to incorporate the four pillars of Hip-Hop culture (DJing, rapping, B-boying, and graf).

Turntable Timmy answers the call for teachers and parents alike for books written in a Hip Hop format. "In 2002 urban youth, regardless of race have no frame of reference for 'Spot, Jane and Dick' " says author Michael Perry. Turntable Timmy speaks to them in a language and visual medium they understand and embrace as their own.

This kinetic rap-rhyming tale of self-motivation is sure to move both body and mind. Simultaneously, it plants the seeds of self-esteem and positive aspirations in the heart of every listener. Readers will have a hip-hop-till-they-drop good time, as they discover along with Timmy that the key to ultimate success is through perseverance, commitment, and dedication!

It's illustrator Doug Cunningham has been recognized as a pioneer in the West Coast graffiti art scene since 1984. In 2001, his artwork captivated critics and filmgoers at the Sundance Film Festival with the release of the first ever-animated skratch movie, Wave Twisters (Thud Rumble Inc). Doug now resides in Brooklyn, N.Y. This is his first children's book.

Michael Perry is an acclaimed writer of children's fiction. His first book for young readers, Daniel's Ride was awarded the 2002 Latino Literary Hall of Fame award for Best Children's Picture Book.

* Demoscene wants you

I don't know how many of you guys into graf are into computers but you might be interested in knowing that there is a scene that exists that parallels what we are involved with in many ways. It's definitely underground, it's definitely underappreciated, and it has roots in the illegal piracy scene. It's called the "demoscene" and there is some heavy talent in it, and even some fellow graf artists.

It's really popular in Europe, and nowadays its really starting to explode in the states. Especially in Chicago, San Francisco, and Dallas.

People have crews which are comprised of coders (programmers... we usually don't do that well in this departament), pixelers (artists using special utilities native to this scene), and trackers (musicians). These people come together to make a production involving all their talents, producing a PC type music video more or less. The effects often are better than stuff being displayed in the top-notch video games and movies.

There are also at times scene competitions and gatherings which really make for a tight community. Of course there are the wars between groups as well.

To all of you looking for a new challenge who want to push your art to the next level, this is the place to be. If you have any questions, need help finding other sceners in your area, or any type of feedback email me at

Here are a few important URLs to get you going.
