The History of American Graffiti

The History of American Graffiti tells the definitive story behind the most influential art form of the last 100 years. Containing more than 1,000 photographs — many never before published — the book explores the key moments, places, and players in a movement distinctly American in flavor yet global in its reach.

Authors Roger Gastman and Caleb Neelon provide an insider's perspective on the history of the medium through behind-the-scenes stories and interviews with graffiti's most prominent names (as well as its lesser-known pioneers). Tracing the evolution of graffiti from its early freight-train days to its big-city boom to its current, modern-day influences, these interviews shed light on the most popular trends and styles dominating the scene for the past five decades.

The book also includes a thorough examination of the regional differences among major American hubs — New York, Los Angeles, the Bay Area, and Chicago — as well as under-the-radar scenes in cities like Washington, D.C., Boston, and Miami. All told, more than 25 American cities are profiled, making this one of the most comprehensive volumes on the subject.

Sure to be an instant classic, The History of American Graffiti is the ultimate graffiti resource — for aficionados, the uninitiated, and everyone in between.

"If there were a college course on graffiti, this would be its textbook." — Shepard Fairey.

Authors — Roger Gastman and Caleb Neelon.
