Resistance is an Australian hardcover publication compiled of images that document the methods and practices of graffiti culture, not focussing solely on the art itself. This book delves into the endeavours that typically can only be experienced, taking you personally through the adventure. Both the documented images in this book and in this short clip are taken from a singular Australian photographer. This clip shows insight into the contents of the book and the lifestyle led.
A view on the writer not on his art… I like that!
The streets have taken over art…
It was the beginning, it was still a game and fun was the initial idea… For sure vandalism but it was to exist… I love graffiti and tag as long as you work on your signature or message by a way or another…
Can’t wait to see this documentary… its facebook page
Cool concept of Graffiti made by a lego in stop motion… Dope!
Always the grain of rice in your shoes… see some of his last work in this second installment…
I just quote the clip description because I couldn’t say it better:
Legendary photographer Martha Cooper has been documenting graffiti and graffiti writers since the late 1970s. Her and Henry Chalfant’s book “Subway Art”, originally published in 1984, was largely responsible for the globalization of graffiti. She has remained a fixture in the community and culture, and has been documenting the Wynwood Walls since the project began in 2009. Her photos tell the story of the Wynwood Walls from its inception to expansion, and all of the artists and their respective works. In graffiti and street art, nothing is permanent, even commissioned walls. Because of the temporary nature of the medium, Martha’s photos outlast almost every piece of graffiti or street art itself.

I told you about the Jonone exhibition at Blackrainbow Paris lately. In this occasion BKRW, Jonone and Artoyz have teamed up on this realisation.
It’s a 3D Throw Up piece! It looks phenomenal! Only 100 piece per color so if you want it don’t let it pass… I will fingercroxx to have one as Hanuka/Xmas or last Eid gift!
For more check BKRW
Yes do it 5 minutes! Think about it!
When you watch this video you understand the revolution that is streetart and graffiti! Ok I don’t talk about the Vandal stuff that I understand and like too (for other reasons) that most talk me about when I say that.
Look at how street artist could make our life better! Imagine your gray, glass or sand wall covered by colors from the imagination of artists…
You see me… City are quite often so boring due to their corporate or industrial past! Put some big pink elephant here and there, some big 25th century virtualized rainbow, wouldn’t be better?
I think so! I think we need to create space on our streets for art! Afraid of vandalism? Good occasion to do another creation on top of the vandalized one!
Here comes the Neighborhood got that! Can we get it too Mr and Mrs Politicians?
