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.

These strong opinionated differences even made it into the Swedish parliament and has kept many international art critics included in the debate.

More than 250 color illustrations. New edition with even more pictures.
New paperback version of the first Banksy's biography written by Will Ellsworth-Jones.
For someone who shuns the limelight so completely that he conceals his name, never shows his face and gives interviews only by email, Banksy is remarkably famous. From his beginnings as a Bristol graffiti artist, his artwork is now sold at auction for six-figure sums and hangs on celebrities' walls. The appearance of a new Banksy is national news, his documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop was Oscar-nominated and people queue for hours to see his latest exhibition. Now more National Treasure than edgy outsider, who is Banksy and how did he become what he is today? In the first attempt to tell the full story of Banksy's life and career, Will Ellsworth-Jones pieces together a picture of his world and unpicks its contradictions. Whether art or vandalism, anti-establishment or sell-out, Banksy and his work have become a cultural phenomenon and the question 'Who is Banksy?' is as much about his career as it is 'the man behind the wall'. 'Britain's unlikeliest national treasure' Independent 'A fascinating portrait that elicits admiration for a man who, despite his increasingly unconvincing efforts to retain some shred of his vandal status, has had an undeniable impact on art' The Times
The first book to celebrate one of the iconic brands of American streetwear. An originator of West Coast street and skate style, FUCT was a cult Los Angeles brand that went on to become one of the most influential American streetwear labels, influencing not only the style but also the graphic and referential approach of countless artists and companies. Driven by the provocative vision of its creator, the artist Erik Brunetti, FUCT’s appeal drew on contemporary skate aesthetics and invoked a situationist slant on brand-oriented consumer culture. Famous for their appropriation of iconic logos, and renowned for collaborations with artists, designers, and companies as diverse as David Mann and Shawn Mortensen, FUCT continues to flirt with controversy as it remains at the forefront of American street fashion and culture. Published to coincide with the brand’s twentieth anniversary, with contributions from icons of the street fashion world such as Aaron Rose and Gary Warnett, this beautifully illustrated, comprehensive volume explores the archives of the brand’s products and advertising, as well as Brunetti’s artwork, sketches, and films that continue to inspire and inform the brand.

Race Flag is a conversation between visual artist Felipe Pantone and photographer Omar Quinones through
images. A single emoji occupies the cover, the use of this title is a statement of intent: They have a conversation
not with words, but images, making use of the multiple meanings and readings they may contain.
The artists establish a game in which Felipe Pantone poses a question in the form of an image, comprised of
the different elements of his work, consisting mainly of abstract forms. Omar Quinones then answers with
a photograph, figurative elements based on what inspires him from the received image, creating a new dimension
focusing on forms, meanings and feelings.
With this format, they establish a kind of abstraction in reverse, in which both artists bring new meanings
throughout the layout of the images. Felipe expresses himself with vectors, digital files and defined shapes,
enhancing the abstraction; while Omar does so with images captured on photographic film, with grain and
imperfections, coaxing the reader to enter a more physical dimension.
