"Street art has come a long way since it split from the graffiti scene in the late 1980s. I've been watching it carefully since the beginning and have seen it grow into a global movement. Artists come and go. Some stay around and I've had the honour of getting down with old school talents such as Banksy, the London Police, Hugo Kaagman and Shepard Fairey. These are the founding fathers. The new school, the next generations as it were are snapping at their heels, hungry to get up and make their names. Some have chosen it for a short route to fame but a few are seriously talented and offer some original ideas. Laser 3.14 is one of these. He brings something completely new, something that no-one else is currently doing anywhere in the world. Word of his talent is rapidly spreading and soon he will have imitators trying to jump his game, jump on his style. This book shows the first vital part of his journey. It is important for artists to be acknowledged by the media and most importantly to go down in history in books.' KING ADZ 'In a world where all urban communication is based on visual impact its amazing to see art that doesn't need to be visually hi-tech to have such influence. Its like a counter movement that doesn't need any artifacts or bullshit to get a point across. It makes optimal use of the environment, the streets, the city and makes them a bit more humanized, melancholic and poetic. Truly inspiring work' VHILS 'Poetry is in the streets!' PURE EVIL 'New York City graffiti-inspired art first triumphed in the museums and galleries of Holland's foremost institutions in the early 1980's, cultivating a fertile ground for an artistic worldwide explosion regarding street art. Laser 3.14 diligently works through this enormous forum, ably constructing a new series of vital manners of creating art forms both visually and sensually intellectual. Laser 3.14 is one of Holland's finest architects of this era, and we shall watch his creative strides into the next with maximum interest' QUIK 'Laser's writing has the function of revealing, in terms of pure art, the secrets of life, its hopes, its joys, its sorrows, its passion; he takes tagging to a different level' HUSH 'In an age when advertisements plaster every urban surface, it's refreshing to spot cryptic aphorisms hand written in public space giving us something more to ponder than our next purchase."
