Piecebook: The Secret Drawings of Graffiti Writers

This is wassup!

October 2 07:00PM – 08:30PM

Piecebook is an inside look at graffiti writers’ black books, which they use to share ideas and sketch out tags before putting them up on walls. Piecebook chronicles the evolution of graffiti via images that weren’t intended for everyday people to see, focusing on the works of NYC writers active from the 1970s until the mid-1980s. Bold works from graffiti history’s most important artists, including Zephyr, Dondi, Daze, CRASH, Lady Pink, T-Kid, CAP and Ghost, represent a dizzying array of techniques and styles. Jenkins was the founder of seminal hip-hop magazine ego trip and was the long-time editorial director of Mass Appeal magazine. Villorente was a notorious tagger and the editor of Source magazine’s graffiti pages. They’ll discuss their new book with the Strand audience.
