As we all know knowledge is power and any graffiti enthusiast and writer alike especially in todays day and age has a vast amount of Streetart imagery, film and influence at their fingertips.
The internet is one thing but there are now so many book publications out there with some real unique graffiti content that I find myself delving into all the time throughout my painting career whatever I’m doing.
Now as much as I have an ego and love the one up-man-ship of this world that acts as the driving engine of a Graffiti writers creativity, I feel that the love needs to be spread in the street art scene and the more we open this world up to that love i.e discussing and sharing etc the better the graffiti community benefits.
I for one am no exception the thirst for style. I collect Graffiti based books and for me its great to see this industry still thriving and for any one out there who is looking to extend their collection, just likes cool pictures or wants a good street art story to get stuck into. Hopefully I can give you my personal feedback from an experienced writers point of view which may give you something useful to take away and get up with.
