Rebellious, provocative, competitive. This is America's newest folk art. Seeded in the gang rivalry of New York's adolescents, it has developed from crude graffiti writing to a highly sophisticated calligraphy that flowers in a constantly changing, bold and brilliant travelling show on the city's subway system.Two gifted photographers, working closely with the writers themselves, have documented every aspects of this extraordinary urban subculture: its origins and history, styles and techniques, vocabulary and conventions, the philosophy of the talented and innovative young artists, and the hostility of unappreciative authority.Effimero, segreto, illegale. Ribelle, provocatorio, competitivo. Questa è la più recente arte popolare americana. Nato nella rivalità tra gang di adolescenti a New York, il movimento si è sviluppato da una rozza scrittura di graffiti a una calligrafia molto sofisticata che fiorisce in uno spettacolo itinerante in costante cambiamento, audace e brillante nella rete metropolitana della città.Due fotografi di talento, lavorando a stretto contatto con gli stessi artisti, hanno documentato ogni aspetto di questa straordinaria sottocultura urbana: le sue origini e la sua storia, stili e tecniche, vocabolario e convenzioni, la filosofia dei giovani  talentuosi artisti e l'ostilità delle autorità.
