via cmybacon. I was a pretty big fan of graffiti art when I was younger – as you can see in some of my drawings from my old sketchbook. This graffiti book, All You Need To Know About Graffiti Is In This Book, was created by London-based graphic designer, Benoit Ollive. Pretty funny.

Graffiti is often misunderstood, and it is difficult for a graffiti writer to explain what he feels about it. I have been asked by a book publisher to write few pages to explain to teenagers how to practice graffiti. After hours and hours I came to the conclusion there was nothing to teach about it except providing the tool to do it. The new generation needs to discover it by practising it instead of reading lessons. Rather than a long sterile speech debating on the good or bad vertues I created my own book to share my point of view through a conceptual message.
