VERY SCARCE. New York, NY: Sidney Janis Gallery, 1983. Quarto gallery catalog, glossy illustrated B&W covers, 20 contents pages illustrated in B&W photos, key to the artists and their artwork. "Post-Graffiti art evolved from youthful folk-art graffiti. Each artist in turn developed his specific visual language out of the experience of working on enormous surfaces. Influenced by the poetry of the cartoon and modern calligraphy, his imagery is fresh and spontaneous, while the tag-names many have acquired often become an integral aspect in his work. Visually the Post-Graffiti artist. relates to the robotic movement of the dance. in music a parallel is seen in the way simultaneous mixing of several records resonates in a complex stream of sound to become a social commentary." --Dolores Neumann. Urban-bred, the graffiti artist continues the tradition of Pop Art which he admires. He expresses in his work his own experiences on the street with an urge and drive so obsessive, that formerly he broke the law to do so. From subway walls to art gallery canvases, from criminal act to respectability, this revolutionary art form has evolved and grown. The book is fine, nearly new in condition. Very, very scarce title.
