SUBWAY ART

title is self explanatory. the catch is...now it's free. i remember seeing this book large and shiny at barnes n noble a few years back and sitting down with an invisible cup of starbucks coffee and rifling through the whole thing in a couple of hours. the catch about this particular type of graffiti is:
ok, you are an artist, the reason for relating to this book is obvious. fuck you and graffiti no matter how hackneyed its got is still the ultimate "post-modern" (god i fuckn hate that word) artform. beautiful eloborate intriquite and ultimately transient. fucking dangerous fucking stupid fucking addictive fuckin illegal.

ok, and if you are a writer writer, well they dont call constant graff artists "writers" for nothing...
