‘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.
With his new VANDALS book Nils Müller finally gives the world a new and most certainly an even deeper insight into the graffiti scene. His pictures in VANDALS, which were taken within the last 7 years, are separated into 10 chapters, that show the different world metropolis. Nils Müller captures their unique characters in his photos. Whether it be London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Milan, New York, Bucharest, Seoul or Caracas. The vivid pictures bring the beholder right into the events. Those photos are even more highlighted by his tales. Again he accompanied artists like Same, Pilchi, Atom, Motiv, Creme, Moses and Taps, Luce, F-ups, and All and Moa. Another landmark in the documentation of the world wide trainwriting scene!
