The Rise of Graffiti Writing – From New York To Europe (8/10) Crime Time Kings | 1985 – 1987


A happening that graffiti disciples say: That was a fat thing. Mode2, Shoe and Bando, founders of the first European graffiti crew Crime Time Kings, meet in Amsterdam to paint a wall together. Over 30 years after the first pictures, they set the Style-Latte 2017 again quite high. We accompany them sketching in the studio and follow them to the revival wall.

In ten episodes, the documentary series traces the rise of the graffiti movement: from New York in the 1970s to Amsterdam and Paris to Munich, from where the graffiti virus infected Europe from the 1980s onwards. Episode 8 beams us into the here and now: The writers of the legendary CTK Crew Mode2, Shoe and Bando meet for a revival wall.

Great selection of limited edition prints!
