All You Need to Know About Graffiti is in this BookWednesday, June 29, 2011
How do you you explain graffiti? Benoit Ollive was asked to write a few pages explaining graffiti, instead he came up with this interesting concept for a book with pages cutout to fit a spray paint can inside. The idea behind this book was that there’s nothing to teach other then providing the tools to do it.
Graffiti is often misunderstood, and it is difficult for a graffiti writer to explain what he feels about it. I have been asked by a book publisher to write few pages to explain to teenagers how to practice graffiti. After hours and hours I came to the conclusion there was nothing to teach about it except providing the tool to do it. The new generation needs to discover it by practicing it instead of reading lessons. Rather than a long sterile speech debating on the good or bad virtues I created my own book to share my point of view through a conceptual message.
