This book shows a great amount of talent in graffiti from all over the world. This book is a must have.
Henry Chalfant and James Prigoff's collaberation in 'Spraycan Art' is a combination of 'work' from eastcoast to westcoast in a world wide spectrum. At the time when this book was first published, many writers had not seen what was being produced on the other side of the glob unless they were avid travelers or had their work in exhibits all over. There is apparently alot of oldschool and newchool influences present here in the work shown.Unfortunately, there isn't any subway pieces like Mr. Chalfants 'Subway Art' book and some of the work is not the best as far as 'style' but their characters and colorful wall murals make up for it. The book also shows how some writer's started and progressively got better.The different styles and techniques are also refreshing.The tools of the trade are still in use and the unwritten rules of graff are present,'eventhough they used a wider variety of colors then we had at the time.' The 'graffiti tradition' is still 'alive and kicking' world wide.
