Graffiti Art has blazed a trail across the world, with amazing examples visible in every modern city, but its pioneers were the New Yorkers who painted whole subway cars. For a few years in the 1970s and 80s, their creations made New Yorks subway system a unique, constantly evolving gallery of a new art form - a visual counterpoint to hip-hop and rap music, and a powerful expression of urban culture. It couldn't last; the city authorities made powerful efforts to stop the artists, and they were forced to move to other areas including the downtown art scene but their visual inventiveness (celebrated in books like the perennially best-selling Subway Art) was unstoppable. Now, with the Subway Graffiti Sketchbook , todays graffiti artists will be able to go back to graffitis roots and find inspiration without fear of electrocution or arrest. The book contains 54 accurate line drawings of Subway carriages, some with color or B&W line art on them to help you get started, but most clean and ready for use. The high-grade uncoated art paper will allow you to use pencil, paint or marker pen and the unique concertina binding will allow you to create amazing sequences of customized cars, perfect for display or just honing your skills.
