“This book, published in 1986, is a photodokumentation of the early days of graffiti in Munich. Fresh, new, dynamic, childish, stylish, vibrant pieces by youngsters who write their names on the walls and trains! Big colorful pieces by Cane 85, Show, Z-Roc, Toxic, Sonic, Cowboy 69, Chintz, Chase 1, Don M. Zaza, Cheech H, Crac, Crash, The Force, Shyre 69, Smith, Booze, Ray…
Munich Graffiti will put a smile on the face of insiders, knowing that in the decades that followed, some of these young graffiti writers became worldwide renown artists and publishers. This book contains some of their earliest works!
Those who were involved with graffiti in the 80s themselves will recognize the influences, the pioneering, the search for name, style and technique.And yes of course the influence of the book Subway Art (1984) drips from many of the pieces. To me that’s charming. Each photo covers an entire page. By studying the photos you find yourself back in those pioneering days. Of the 100 pieces, no fewer than 24 are on trains, including a freight from Ray. Full color window-downs incl. characters, Top To Bottom and Wholecars… masterpieces of the time! Munich Graffiti- 100 Pieces is hard to find, especially in good condition, and therefore on the wanted-list of many collectors.”-TimSki
