The Art of writing your name
The Art of Writing Your Name bridges the ancestral art of Calligraphy and Graffiti. From this fusion was born a new style, the Calligraffiti , popularized by Niels Shoe Meulman, pioneer of graffiti in Europe.
The book presents a complete panorama of this young branch of urban contemporary art by following the work of more than 35 artists: from the oldest, such as Shoe and Chaz Bojorquez, to the most recent, such as Usugrow, passing through established figures such as as JonOne, Cryptik, Zepha, Tilt, L'Atlas, Saber, Faust, El Seed etc. Numerous high definition photos as well as interviews come to deepen the subject. It is an open and uninhibited vision of urban calligraphy that is offered to the reader with a focus on works produced with a spray can of course, but also with a brush, on the wall as on canvas. A book to quickly put into everyone's hands: modern calligraphers will find an effective source of inspiration there and lovers of Graffiti and Street Art will be able to deepen their knowledge of this ambitious part of the movement.
Christian Hundertmark is one of the co-authors of the book, we also owe him the very popular Art of Rebellion series, considered by many to be a Street Art bible.
