Moses & Taps™ - Graffiti Avantgarde™

    Moses & Taps™ Moses & Taps™ - Graffiti Avantgarde™


    Product description

    The book shows how MOSES & TAPS™ managed the balancing act between train bombing and their existence as an artist, and it makes it clear why these two worlds do not have to be opposites.

    The monograph begins with an interview by MOSES & TAPS™ with criminologist Ike, which examines the question of what actually defines the graffiti avant-garde, who it is, what goals it has and what drives it.

    The TOPSPRAYER™ chapter, in which MOSES & TAPS™ tells us about various intermediate stops on trains from Russia to the USA follows the SPLASH™ chapter, in which you learn in which places and non-places you can leave colorful traces as a writer spray cans can be left without having to use a fat cap and letters.

    The scepter is then handed over to ALIAS™, whose supposedly 1001 moves in 999 days on 176 pages through his stories and the action photos by Edward Nightingale be rounded off.

    In SCRATCHITI™, MOSES™ shows why he paints panes of glass just to clean them, how he gets them from the yard to the museum and back again, and why he hates Mickey Mouse.

    In the CORPORATE IDENTITY™ chapter, Robert Kaltenhäuser then deciphers how all chapters can be connected using MOSES & TAPS™ CI codes, why yellow-blue works better than Banksy and what's behind of the ™ (trademark) symbol.

    With IMAGE OF GRAFFITI™, TAPS™ makes it clear why graffiti must be illegal and how you can still create an image of it on canvas.

    While the chapter CREATIVE DESTRUCTION™ deals with the complexity of MOSES & TAPS™´ works that are presented in collage-like images and expressing installations, the CONCEPT VANDALISM section is dedicated to her unique conceptual works on trains - and sometimes the walls within them.

    Finally, MOSES & TAPS™ explain and illustrate their very personal view of the development of their styles in two separate chapters.
