Andrea Nelli Graffiti a New York book

GRAFFITI A NEW YORK

BOOK

Andrea Nelli was about twenty years old when he went to New York for the first time and saw on the walls BIG-O 116, EVIL ERF 14, RAT FINK 131, SUPER KOOL 223. They seemed indecipherable codes, written all over with black spray, but then he understood that it was Nomi. It was the early 1970s and even the trains were running covered in writing. He began to take photographs intrigued by these compositions and managed to get in touch with several cliques of writers who opened the doors of New York to him.
Big names, such as COCO 144, led him. Graffiti in New York is the reissue of what is considered one of the first ever books on graffiti published by Andrea Nelli in 1978.
This book takes up the original text, a precious document of an unthinkable research for that period, contributes to the recovery of amazing images, focused as much in the styles of the time as on the subjects and on the first tags in Manhattan Heights.
Over 100 photographs of Names and historical pieces taken by Andrea Nelli himself accompany an authentic text in form and content that freezes the phenomenon in its first years of birth.
