9780810992986: Graffiti L.A.: Street Styles and Art (with cd-rom)

Long before graffiti was adopted as the visual expression of hip-hop culture in the 1980s, Chicano gang members in East Los Angeles had been developing stylized calligraphy and writing on walls. Cholo (gangster) scripts became the first distinctive letter forms to evolve in the modern vernacular tradition of graffiti writing. Today Los Angeles writers of diverse backgrounds draw from a unique confluence of cultures that has led to regionally distinctive styles.

Graffiti L.A. provides a comprehensive and visual history of graffiti in Los Angeles, as well as an in-depth examination of the myriad styles and techniques used by writers today. Complementing the main text, interviews with L.A.’s most prolific and infamous writers provide insight into the lives of these fugitive artists. Essential to the understanding of the development of the graffiti movement, this book will be an invaluable source to graffiti fans around the world.

About the Author:

Steve Grody saw spray can art begin to appear around Los Angeles’s streets and walls in the 1980s and immediately recognized its creativity and verve. Since 1990, he has been driving across Los Angeles searching its back alleys, washes, and abandoned lots for this vernacular art.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. The culmination of author and photographer Grody's 17-year obsession, this stunning examination of Los Angeles street art should prove to be a definitive work on the subject. Beginning in the 1930s, when stylized calligraphic writing (often called "Old English") was first used by Latino gangs to mark territories, Grody quickly moves on to the art form's explosion in the '80s, when four distinct forms were spreading throughout the city: tags, a name in stylized script; throw-ups, one-color designs quickly applied; pieces, more elaborate and colorful efforts; and productions, a collection of pieces. The book truly takes off among the hundreds of beautifully photographed pieces Grody offers, along with testimony from the artists and "crews" who created them. Grody describes the anatomy of a piece, crew dynamics and the politics of what is still an illegal art form, but knows when to step back and let the artists speak for themselves; he elicits comments on everything from overcoming early technical obstacles to close calls-both with cops and injury-to the history and meaning behind their art. The importance of Grody's work-as in any other street art roundup-is in capturing these short-lived pieces before they're inevitably defaced by rivals or painted over by the authorities; what makes this beautiful book stand out is the way Grody completes his vibrant picture with the voices of the street artists themselves. CD-ROM included.

Descrizione libro Abrams, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Long before graffiti was adopted as the visual expression of hip-hop culture in the 1980s, Chicano gang members in East Los Angeles had been developing stylized calligraphy and writing them on walls since as early as the 1940s. Cholo (gangster) scripts became the first distinctive letter forms to evolve in the modern vernacular tradition of graffiti writing. Today, in addition to the long-standing tradition of Cholo writing, Los Angeles street artists of diverse backgrounds draw from a unique confluence of cultures (pan-Asian, pan-Latino, African-American, European, Jewish) that has led to regionally distinctive styles, which are now studied by graffiti writers worldwide. This is confirmed by the fact that not only have many writers come to Los Angeles to collaborate with regional artists, but many have now taken up residence in the city to be a part of this thriving art scene. In Graffiti L.Ai: Street Styles and Art , author Steve Grody documents current trends in graffiti and street art in Los Angeles, while also providing a history of the art form in the city. This is an indepth examination of technique, an exploration of socio-cultural issues in crew dynamics, battles and apprenticeship and interviews with the most prominent artists round out the text. This volume places Los Angeles in its rightful place - at the vanguard of the graffiti world. Codice libro della libreria AAS9780810992986
