In his book ‘Decouvirir et comprendre le graffiti’ Bernard Fontaine takes you on a historical, chronological journey through time. From the Lascaux caves to the first decade of the 21st century, a journey across 5 continents, he deciphers the street art movement by giving the reader all the keys to understanding. From Bolshevik propaganda to the emergence of popular culture in the United States, from the New York subway to Parisian galleries, through the walls of the revolt in Chile or Berlin, this work shows how graffiti, between recognition and repression, forges links with History. All pages are illustrated with photos.
