Content

Wall Writers explores the eruption of graffiti into mainstream society in the period of social turmoil in the late 1960s and early 70s, and takes a closer look not only at early graffiti on the wall but its place in the culture of the time. More comprehensive than any other book on the subject, Wall Writers explores not only early graf writing itself but the writers creating it, the new technology of spray paint that made it possible, and the culture that drove them to write be it a need to rebel against the government, to pass a message, or simply be recognized by society. Hundreds of images of everything from spray paint advertisements to commercial greeting cards to images of buildings completely covered in spray painted monikers are included, and reveal the context of the beginnings of a movement that would eventually grow to transform city life, public transit, public art, and ultimately visual art the world over. Includes interviews and profiles of some of the most prolific writers of the time, including TAKI 183, Cornbread, and dozens more
