This is no art-gallery graffiti. Going all-city is about leaving your mark, taking space, and then taking more. Featuring stunning photographs and interviews with legendary graffiti writers from around the world, All-City takes an inside look at the lives, motives, tools, and techniques of some of the most obsessive vandals of all time.
This book comes from the creators of Under Pressure magazine and gives a fascinating insight into the world of graffiti bombing. In All City, hardcore writers talk in their own words about their passion, their fascination. What is their motivation What does their life look like? How did they become interested in something that is seen by the world as vandalism? All City studies the technique and “tools” that writers use and explains the jargon used. Through themes such as Getting up, Crews, Cross outs, Markers and Mops, Stickers and Etch tags, the reader not only gains insight into the bombing scene, but also receives unsolicited tips on how to get started yourself: What to do if you are stopped by the police, where and how to get gloves, how to throw up, how to work with paint rollers, how best to take photos of your work, how to make a marker and ink yourself and an interview with KR about his own ink brand KRink.
