Very Cool

Just found out that I’m in this book.  THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN GRAFFITI dropped last year by authors Roger Gastman and Caleb Neelon.  Anyone who knows me knows that hip-hop culture dominated my youth, and played a significant role in my maturity as a professional artist.  A mural I painted back in 1986 is featured in the Boston section of this 400-plus page monster.  Shout out to Caleb Neelon for bringing it all to my attention, and hooking me up with a copy of the book!

*From the web…

THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN GRAFFITI is packed with over one thousand photographs—the majority of which have never before been seen—from more than two hundred photographers, most of whom also created the artwork. The authors have spent the better part of the last four years interviewing key figures in the graffiti world throughout America—from the bedrock cities of New York City, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles to more than twenty metropolitan hotspots, including Chicago, Boston, Miami, New Orleans, San Diego, and Seattle. Approximately 90 percent of the art in this book has never been published, and was sourced directly from the artists who lived the scene, giving the book a raw street vibe as authentic as the history it documents.
