Negen jaar na de release van hun legendarische boek INTERNATIONAL TOPSPRAYER™ die inmiddels voor vele honderden euro’s op het internet verhandeld wordt. Komen MOSES & TAPS™ met een dubbeldik boek en zo zwaar als een betonblok: GRAFFITI AVANTGARDE™

GRAFFITI AVANTGARDE™ is een zwaargewicht! Met 544 pagina’s en meer dan 2000 foto’s verdeeld over 10 hoofdstukken en een groot diversiteit aan verhalen en uitleg. Dit boek geeft een inzicht in het veelzijdige werk van MOSES & TAPS™, de balans tussen treinen bomben en de acceptatie van hun werk in de kunst wereld. Art of Vandalism, wat maak jij ervan? Het is in ieder geval een must have voor elke liefhebber. Voor meer info lees de Engelse text hieronder.



Nine years after their legendary book INTERNATIONAL TOPSPRAYER™, which is out of print long-since and traded for hundreds of euros by now, MOSES & TAPS™ release a brick twice as thick: GRAFFITI AVANTGARDE™

GRAFFITI AVANTGARDE™ is a heavyweight! With 544 pages, more than 2000 photos in ten chapters as well as a variety of exciting and subtle texts, it gives a deep insight into MOSES & TAPS™ broad work as graffiti artist since 2011. The book shows how they managed the balancing act between bombing trains and being accepted artists and explains why these two worlds are not mutually exclusive.

The monograph begins with an interview with MOSES & TAPS™ by the criminologist Ike, in which she explores the question of what actually constitutes the graffiti avant-garde, who it is, what goals it has and what it drives.

The TOPSPRAYER™ chapter, in which MOSES & TAPS™ lead us through various stops on trains from Russia to the USA, is followed by the SPLASH™ chapter, in which you learn on which places you can leave colorful traces with spray cans without using a fatcap and letters.

Afterwards the scepter is handed over to ALIAS™, whose professed 1001 trains in 999 days on 176 pages are rounded off by his stories and the action photos of Edward Nightingale.

In SCRATCHITI™ MOSES™ shows why he paints glass panes in order to clean them, how he brings them from the train yards to the museum and back again and we learn why he hates Mickey Mouse.

In the chapter CORPORATE IDENTITY™ Robert Kaltenhäuser then deciphers how all chapters can be connected via MOSES & TAPS™ CI codes, why yellow-blue works better than Banksy and what ́s behind the TM.

In IMAGE OF GRAFFITI™ TAPS™ makes clear, why Graffiti must be illegal and reveals how one can create an image of it on canvases nevertheless.

While the chapter SCHÖPFERISCHE ZERSTÖRUNG™ („creative destruction“) deals with the complexity of MOSES & TAPS™’ works, which are expressed in collage pieces, the part KONZEPT-VANDALISMUS™ is dedicated to their unique conceptual works on trains – and sometimes also the walls inside.

To round the book off, MOSES & TAPS™ explain and illustrate in two separate chapters their very personal approach of developing their styles.
