Dmote began writing in 1987. During the years, studying and applying the techniques he learnt, Dmote develops a very personal approach to graffiti, despite the close relationship with New York's mid '80s semi-wild style. After 20 years spent painting in Sydney's streets, this writer is the perfect synthesis of style. A rock solid style and, at the same time, multicoloured and various, that allowed him to be internatioally appreciated as a writer, but also as an artist and graphic designer. This book shows some of his best handstyles. Or, as he wrote, "This project is a glimpse of my travels, friendships, style and shows a momentary escape from my daily life". Recommended. Limited edition of 500 copies.

The book traces his career from the beginning, step by step, documenting his stylistic evolution that, despite being strongly influenced by the 80s overseas style, has come to an evolution based on the passion for the geometry of the letters and the complexity of the unachievable space, which has transformed its pieces into real masterpieces.

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.

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.

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
