Above The Law Volume I: Graffiti on Passenger Trains is the definitive book about graffiti on passenger trains. The third book by Phil America, it captures the lives and work of some of the most well-known graffiti artists across the globe. Containing 225 pages of photos taken in metropolitan cities all around the world, Phil America immersed himself into this culture and documented it over the course of ten years. In these never before seen photos, we are taken into a dangerous and private world that most are unable to ever witness: deep into subway tunnels, over fences, under surveillance cameras and behind sensors. Each photograph captures a moment of freedom.
‘I am just trying to be nice’ is a book about the work of Nug, published as a limited edition first run. This exclusive publication comes with a one of a kind book cover Nug made from a new piece of his work cut to pieces. Please note: every single copy has a unique cover made by the artist. Amsterdam based design agency UNDOG – notorious for creating unorthodox and challenging visual communications – created a clean, subtle and at the same time an equally rough and raw design for the 64 page book. This book contains the first true overview of Nug’s work: from exhibitions to graffiti pictures, video stills and paintings, it’s all here, all Nug, in all overwhelming intensity. This release is a collectors item for book lovers, graffiti haters and opinionated people. Nug is a well known name in the graffiti scene. Apart from taking trains and walls on, he’s also created many controversial exhibitions, video’s and paintings. Some define his Works as plain vandalism, others clearly think this is what art is about. These strong opinionated differences even made it into the Swedish parliament and has kept many international art critics included in the debate.
