ON THE RUN BOOKS #14 HALL OF FAME

....just from the printer.

New York City is the birthplace of style writing. It is here that young graffiti writers first began to transform letters from simple tags on a wall to elaborate, masterpieces of colorful letters embellished with characters which depicted friends, heroes and tributes to a wide range of cultural influences.

Since the days when graffiti first gained popularity in New York City, the schoolyards attracted kids eager to practice graffiti writing while hanging out. One of their favorite painting spots since the late 1970s was a schoolyard in Harlem, which later became New York City’s official Graffiti Hall of Fame. Its motto, “Strictly Kings and Better,” dared only the most accomplished graffiti artists to leave their marks, and over the years the word spread beyond New York around the world.

This book documents the legacy of the Graffiti Hall of Fame, which spans over 30 years, thus making this collection of burners a full-blown history lesson in New York City styles. Join us on this artistic retrospective of a famous and historic New York City landmark: the Graffiti Hall of Fame.

OTR BOOKS # 14 HOW&NOSM

The Perre twins aka How&Nosm are European graffiti artists and professional muralists residing in New York. There has been much interest in their new work. In times when a multitude of colors, techniques and effects tend to overcompensate for style, How&Nosm take the opposite approach.

With a limited color pallet in hand, the brothers create eye-catching murals laced with social commentary. Their signature ‘black, white and red’ intricate patterns, stark line work and stylized forms allow the clarity of the message conveyed come to the fore.

How&Nosm – The Brazil Diaries is an intimate look at their art explorations in Brazil. Unlike any other place they have travelled to, have they found such great understanding and acceptance of their artistic pursuits. The liberation and creative freedom afforded has proved instrumental in their recent mural work and keeps them returning for more.

Their infamous working methods have become the standard for those daring to compete. Many have attempted, but most fail. For those willing to try, be warned, they are ruthless inside and outside the yard, so proceed with caution.
