I took the above photograph while walking along a river. It caught my eye. How could it not!
The Faith of Graffiti by Normal Mailer, and by Jon Naar, is an excellent book regarding graffiti used as art, as street life, as neighborhood identity, and so much more. I highly recommend it for its informative history, and for the wonderful photography, within its pages.
Another wonderful book regarding graffiti, is Wall and Piece by Bansky! His graffiti art speaks volumes, where words fail.
Graffiti Alphabets: Street Fonts from Around the World by Claudia Walde, looks fascinating to me. I love the use of alphabet letters as an art form.
Thank you for visiting! Enjoy your day/evening, wherever you are!
