Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of the enormously successful Graffiti World comes this spectacular follow-up, celebrating the contributions of women to contemporary graffiti and street art.

Female writers have always been in the vanguard of the graffiti movement, though often shunted to the sidelines by their male counterparts. This exhaustive volume places them front and center, featuring 1,000 full-color illustrations from some of the world’s most prominent artists, including Brazil’s Nina, Japan’s Sasu, Mexico’s Peste, and the Americans Lady Pink, Swoon, and Miss 17. Two eight-page fold-out collages, a fold-out poster jacket, and an authoritative text round out the impressive package. The first and only comprehensive survey of its kind, this book is sure to attract and expand upon the wide and enthusiastic readership that made Graffiti World such a runaway success.

Book News Annotation:

This volume surveys the work of female graffiti and street artists, with approximately 1,000 color illustrations making up the bulk of the book. Often ignored, these women have had to fight against the idea that graffiti is a male realm. Ganz briefly discusses the trend in all parts of the world, and shows the work of many artists around the globe, with some background on them accompanying photos of tags, characters, and other art. No index is present. Ganz is a street and fine artist based in Germany. He is the author of Graffiti World.
