The history of graffiti has been misstated repeatedly This may be the only telling that does not grossly simplify the very long history of graffiti Although it's commentary on the political ramifications of an art movement arising from the criminal act of vandalism is thin and its conflation of graffiti with other forms of street art is arguably misguided these are technical matters relating to my perspective on graffiti This book is the only statement of graffiti history that I will cite as a reference It is not the definitive history of the subject but it is the only book in the field that is close

This is a brutally honest review from the viewpoint of an artist I was excited to get this book after reading a few reviews but was sorely disappointed You may agree or disagree and that’s cool Here are my thoughts pros cons and opinion on who might or might not enjoy this book or find it usefulIf you are a semi experienced graffiti artist already have a few graff books went to art school are a professional artist of some kind are already familiar with multiple graffiti artists believe hip hop culture and graffiti are a historically and currently significant pairing if you hate crappy tags and throw ups if you hate vandalism versus ART because it gives the graffiti community a hard time if you’d like to see train and subway art get a section if you are not that interested in stencil art if you want an artistically represented history of graffiti with emphasis on 60s 90s art and writing styles this book might NOT be for youCONS & WHAT WASN’T really INCLUDEDTrain & subway art as a movement writing styles in different regions attention to the point when modern graffiti as we know it today began to emerge than one tiny paragraph on hip hop & graffiti literally the section titled that is maybe 5 lines long on graffiti as art rather than 80 pages of cave writings petroglyphs stone carvings and writing on bathroom walls and I hoped for on retro graffiti and cartoon character styles that emerged from that period that greatly influenced the comic scene Just because I’ve had trouble finding books on thatThis book title should read “A Basic History of Graffiti” It left so much to be desired I’ve had a hard time finding books with a lot on 60s present graffiti as it developed b boy graff cartoon art and specific styles’ influences on pop culture design and other areas of the arts like comics as I mentioned There’s a glossary of what are street terms essentially but these terms aren’t really used in the main text The book does spend a lot of pages on “tags” and the examples are pretty bad Region neighborhood or group specific styles aren’t highlighted west coast east coast etc flourishes and techniues aren’t mentioned graffiti in the context of its influence and contribution to the art world is missed or skimmed over at best and graffiti ART’S place in social movements isn’t given much attention to Most of the photos the author chose to include poorly represent the artists mentioned and there seems to be focus on ancient stone writings and vandalism type scribblings than the art of aerosol This book is way basic than expected It’s gotten a few great reviews but I just don’t see it The section on Basuiat contains one image—a page of scribblings in a notebook not his SAMO work The Keith Haring section also has one photoand its of a random dude in a Keith Haring shirt I was super annoyed by thatPROSIt’s a decent way to learn wikipedia type facts about a number of artists and half of them have photo examples of their work The binding is nice and the pages are smooth High uality book from that standpoint The glossary is useful for people new to graffiti If you don’t know much about graffiti or have trouble appreciating it this might be a good place to start but reading material with better images will be reuired to grasp graffiti as an art formNEUTRAL 80 pages on writing in stone etc lots of examples of stencil art There should have just been a section on stencil artists considering that Nothing provided for context on the author and their purpose behind the book There’s a randomness to it as there’s not a full spectrum representation of art and artists The cover of the book is stunning than a lot of what’s inside The book is text heavy and written somewhat academically It has an encyclopedic feel to itI’m not a graffiti expert or specialize in graffiti as an artist but hope this helps you figure out if it’s for you
