"Graffiti New York" is the comprehensive history of New
York City graffiti from the late 1960s up until present day. In a
fashion that strikes a balance between strong visuals and brief but
substantive text and interviews, it presents the big picture of the
city that gave birth to a global visual/social revolution. Decades
after the movement globalized, New York is still the Mecca of
graffiti culture. Painting there is a badge of honor, with graffiti
artists from around the globe making pilgrimages to New York for
that purpose. This is the city where it all began, yet few know the
back story. "Graffiti New York" fills that gap, detailing
the concepts, aesthetics, ideals and social structures that have
served as a cultural blueprint for graffiti movements across the
world. The book features approximately 1,000 images, complemented
by texts by the authors and other relevant players in the movement,
as well as descriptive graphics and sidebars. Spanning the birth of
simple signature tags to today's vibrant murals, covering the
movement's growth, its social framework and values, the various
forms of graffiti and significant artists and crews, "Graffiti
New York" presents the big picture like no other.
