Since 1984, Darco FBI has left his name in spray paint on every surface he considered worthy of his mark and in just a handful of years he has become the leading trendsetter in European graffiti styles. Rigorously aesthetical and a true devotee of writing and lettering, Darco is a forerunner whose tortured style combines a burgeoning creativeness with typical Germanic meticulousness. Of Franco-German origins, Darco is an international graffiti artist who has travelled worldwide on a quasi-mystical quest for the perfect letter. According to Darco, the writing movement is a paradox: chaotic yet structured and capable of freeing itself from its own laws – an unattainable phenomenon in constant evolution that strikes fear into the hearts of the layman. This book retraces twenty years of underground and commissioned work, and features pieces painted on a multitude of surfaces spread across the four corners of the planet. Darco invites us on a journey deep into the heart of his very secret world.
