Graffiti Cookbook is a guide to the materials and techniques used within today’s most creative and progressive art movement. In hundreds of pictures and illustrations and 35 interviews with some of the world’s most famous artists the authors show how graffiti is made. From spray techniques and hand styles to tools and style analysis, Graffiti Cookbook takes us on a trip around the world in the search of the tricks and trades of graffiti writers. We even learn how to build our own wall. After hundreds of books filled with pictures of graffiti published in the last few years finally one is showing how the artists work.
Graffiti Cookbook is filled with tips and examples of how to create your own piece, tag and throw
up. These techniques can be used on all kinds of materials, textile, glass, metal, concrete or wood. Graffiti Cookbook gives an unique insight in the alternative art world and is a rich inspiration source for those interested in do-it-yourself-culture.
