"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.
