Calligraphic writing has long been a part of the graffiti culture and lately also stepped into the fine rooms of the galleries. The happening itself marks the birth of the so-called calligraffiti genre, and that's exactly the book The Art of Writing Your Name focuses on.
Under the motto 'visualization of the word' and with the help of a total of 35 artists from 3 generations, including well-known names like Chaz Bojorquez, JonOne, Cryptic, Egs and, of course the pioneer Niels "Shoe" Meulman, the book deals with this new genre and we gets to see calligraphic artwork from all corners of the world.
Everything from street to gallery, from asphalt to canvas, is represented by places and surfaces, and we can also share the artists' tools, ranging from traditional pens and brushes to more unexpected gadgets.
If calligraphy writing is your cup of tea you will love this book!
