New book about London graffiti called Crack & Shine.
“Featuring forty of the most exciting and prolific graffiti artists to have lived and painted in London, Crack & Shine is the only London graffiti book ever to be published. Also presenting the work of London-based photographer Will Robson-Scott, Crack & Shine includes a series of over 50 beautifully-composed photographs, created exclusively for the book; giving articulate and vivid insight into the awkward moments of waiting, the apprehension of hiding and the calm and stillness that comes with seeing the world from an altered perspective.”
The book has lots of nice photography by Will Robson-Scottand lots of cool quotes like the one below from Elk:
“When compared to the visual internet presence of current urban artists one realises how times have changed. It really blows my mind how many incredible pieces of art have been painted on Tubes that were not photographed and are lost forever. It’s mad to look back on so many years of our lives that no one knows about.”
