Akut, Case, Rusk and Tasso are the members of the Maclaim Crew which specialized themselves in photorealistic graffiti, illegal most of the times. Nowadays with all the quick tags and ruff chrome pieces it is fascinating to see someone who does the opposite, extremely well done pieces where nothing irritates the eye. Publikat has created a beautiful and very serious book which gives a good insight in technique, motives and performing the most technical graffiti you can imagine.
