Graffiti and street art is as old as mankind and a natural form of communication and art in cities. Since early mankind people paint images on walls like in the carves of Lascaux or write personal or other notes like the found texts in Pompeii.

The graffiti and street art as we know it started in the late 60's in New York and Philadelphia, where young people started to write their names on walls and trains. This culture exploded into an amazing variety of styles and artistic forms during the last years and has taken a lot of influence onto modern youth cultures and also entered the design and artworld with their direct and artistic expression of images.

This book tries to show the historical roots of this artform to the modern styles and trends. During the last years the whole culture feels a fresh new wind with artists using different techniques to the old prefered medium: the spraycan and other works appear as stickers, posters, stencils, brush painted images or even sculptures.

The modern graffiti/street art movement is expressing their own personal thoughts and mind to a wider publicity while using the street as their gallery and giving an alternative image to see next to the flood of commercial advertising, the modern street artist is trying to communicate with the city and its inhabitans and also using the archtitecture and the social surroundings as a background to their paintings.

Very good book, I bought it about three years ago. Its got some hot pics and even some of SA's finest are in there.

Just wish he could have put some pics of Faith herself in there. Is she still with Makone?
