Book Release – Same Same™

Moses_SprayDailySame Same™, Release April 21
MOSES & TAPS™ are without a doubt two of the most active and creative writers on earth. Although their avant-garde works often leave traditional paths there is always a clear reference to graffiti. Their debut book INTERNATIONAL TOPSPRAYER™ became one of the most read graffiti books worldwide and the number of sold copies has meanwhile reached a five-digit number. With that work they demonstrated the spectrum of their artistic ability as well as they presented an essential work of reference.

SAME SAME™ is the title of a photobook which focuses on MOSES & TAPS™ throw ups and their surroundings. “As to form graffiti is redundant due to a repetitive personal style. As to content graffiti is redundant due to a repeating name. Therefore, the most exciting moment – the symbiosis of graffiti and its surrounding – can only be achieved if the individuality of the painted steps in the background,” TM™ explain the idea behind their project. Thus, SAME SAME™ is not supposed to continue INTERNATIONAL TOPSPRAYER™ but it is to solve the dilemma between ‘perfect piece’ and ‘perfect photograph’. Again MOSES & TAPS™ take the viewer on their probably never-ending journeys travelling the continents: tunnels in Berlin, the Trans-Siberian Railway, or NATO military training areas; blue and yellow Easter eggs do not only travel the world on thousands of freight cars any longer.
