Product Description

124 pages, hardcover- Graffiti has moved from the trains to the streets -- and doors are the new canvases. Gates Of Graffiti shows doors from New York, Berlin, Copenhagen, Stockholm and other cities. 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 the art without being noticed. Gates Of Graffiti is the first book to focus on tags, their design, and how writers communicate with them. It is a unique chance to understand what tags are about and how beautiful they can be. Text by graffiti writers Smith (NYC), Punk (Gothenburg), Clint 176 (Berlin) and Don Juan (Copenhagen), who open-heartedly tell the fascinating stories behind the names that adorn the doors of major cities. Photos by Bjorn Almqvist, Tobias Barenthin Lindblad, Malcolm Jacobson and Torkel Sjostrand.
