Cosmonometry

Graffiti & Street Art Books

Cosmonometry is the illustrated biography of Pro176, Parisian writer, spokesman for the European school strongly influenced by the New York writing roots. Son of the Paris suburbs, Pro approaches to graffiti from an early age, preferring the RER A station benches, instead of the school benches. The book recounts his approaches to the world of Hip Hop, his desire to escape from the gray landscape of the Parisian suburbs, his first illegal parties in the underground tunnels, his stylistic evolution based on the meeting with the style masters like Bando, Mode 2 in Paris, Poem, Cope 2 and Wane in New York, Recto and Jaba in Liege. Cosmonometry is a true timeline of a key figure in the European world of writing, which has managed to combine the basics of the style of the graffiti mecca with a frantic search for their own method in lettering design. All-round Artist, in the course of his career Pro176 dedicated himself to everything related to the purest form of writing, becoming a master in both its complex masterpiece productions, and in the art of Throwup and tagging, virtually present in every corner of any Parisian arrondisment, until the full consecration of his figure as an illustrator, exhibiting in many galleries in France, Belgium, Germany, England and Switzerland. 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. A must for those who want to deepen their knowledge into the most innovative lettering design of the last decade.
