    Book details

This book is the first to examine the spread of graffiti in Asia, concentrating mainly on Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan, as well as China and Hong Kong. Anecdotes and interviews with local artists provide an insight into which paints, tools and techniques are used, and the most popular graffiti locations. The book is divided up into sections covering specific artists, lettering, history, locations, crews and trains, with all material collected at first hand by the authors.

Ryo Sanada and Suridh Hassan of Studio Rarekwai specialize in the promotion of international culture and music through documentary production and film. Their documentary film on Japanese hip-hop culture--"Scratching the Surface: Japan"--has been broadcast across Europe. This was followed by successful screenings at the 12th Raindance Film Festival in London and the Vancouver International Hip-Hop Film Festival.

  • By A. Cremmen on 30 June 2012

    I thought that this book has been published wonderfully. I like the layout, the feel of the book, and the way it's printed. it feels very modern.However, I found the content a little tedious. There are some beautiful pieces in there, but they seem over shadowed by photos of what I would have called petty vandilism rather than graffiti. Through fault of my own, I hadn't really consired that the choice of work could be limited, as the scene has only really been in Asia one decade. I thought though, that the book could have had a fewer number of unskilled pieces, and bigger pictures of the real art of Graffiti asia.
