By Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant.
“Dedicated to those who run from the law to express their art… keep runnin!!!” So begins this original edition of the groundbreaking book on the New York graffiti scene circa 1980s. Subway Art is so exhilarating to flip through, it’s as if we were there riding the subways alongside the crews. To get a good idea of the epic pieces in this book, just check out the fold-out centerfold – a panel the full length of a subway car. Ephemeral, secretive, rebellious and provocative this was street art at its purest.
