Scrivere Da Cani

Graffiti & Street Art Books

Scrivere da Cani, Spiner 1994 - 2014 is a project curated by Stefano Mariani e Filippo Nicolini around the style evolution of the Milanese graffiti writer Spiner. This book contains a selection of more than 450 archive images of bombings and tags of one of the main artists of the Lambrate area based TBC crew, shot over ten years. Spiner is unique in the way he identifies characteristic places to express himself. He’s unique for the constant research of his tools which is not limited to the classics offered by the writing discipline and for his expressive evolution, free from the constraints of creating readable texts. An attitude that guided him through the city like an animal marking its territory. The idea of an unreadable calligraphy - commonly associated to a ‘dog’s handwriting’ in Italian - inspires the title of the book ‘Scrivere da Cani’ and represents a personal point of view on contemporary writing, presented in its singularity within the Milanese scene of recent years. For those who already know Spiner and appreciate his style, this publication is a unique occasion to see an impressive quantity of his works reunited in one archive, organized in a chronologic order and following the evolution of his style. To those who may not know Spiner, this book represents a chance to discover one of the most hermetic and explosive talents of the Italian scene. A truly unique book that every lover of Milanese urban art should own. Spiner is a one of a kind and maybe the last true urban writer. The last of a dying breed of stray dogs. Introduction by Filippo Nicolini and foreword by Simone Pallotta. Photography by Stefano Mariani. Bind, 416 pages, 23x15,5 cm, 150 cover edition

Barry McGee

Graffiti & Street Art Books

Published on the occasion of the first major survey of Barry McGee’s work, this monumental volume records more than two decades of incredible fecundity, over the course of which McGee has pioneered a new iconography of sharp street vitality and graphic snap. McGee began as a graffiti artist on the streets of San Francisco, working under such tags as Ray Fong, Twist and Twisto, and his work since then has hugely expanded the terms of both street art and contemporary art. The freshness of McGee’s work stems in part from his virtuoso handling and consolidation of a whole panoply of influences, from hobo art, sign painting and graffiti to comics, Beat literature and much else. His extraordinary skill as a draughtsman is energized by his insistence on pushing at the parameters of art--his work can be shockingly informal in the gallery and surprisingly elegant on the street--and by his keen nose for social malaise. This volume revisits McGee’s most influential installations in art spaces, and considers the evolution of his aesthetic within institutional settings. Previously unseen photographs by Craig Costello document the artist’s work on the streets of San Francisco in the early 90s, highlighting the contributions of his friends and mentors. Also included are images from the artist’s famous slide lecture, compiled and refined over the past 20 years, and an oral history of the Bay Area’s Mission School by McGee’s friends, mentors and collaborators. Featuring 450 images, including many never before published, the book is designed by the artist in collaboration with Conny Purtill. Strongly suggested!
