Description


Ride back in time on the colorful New York City subway line of the 1970s to 1990s; the graffiti years, when subway cars became rolling metal canvases for some of the most notorious and influential graffiti "writers" of all time. Explore the amazing array of art work from the 1970s, '80s and '90s transit system "graveyards," including the work of graffiti artists BLADE, GHOST, SENT, REAS, VEN, WOLF, and STRIDER, as well as many other talented "underdogs." The era is richly illustrated with over 235 rare, never-before-published photographs accompanied by personal accounts from the writers talking about their art and recalling their wild antics. This is an informative, nostalgic look at New York subway graffiti.
