GRAFFITI ASIA is the first book to examine the spread of graffiti in Asia, concentrating mainly on Indonesia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, South Korea and Taiwan, as well including the Philippines, China and Singapore.
Interviews with local artists provide an insight into the life of the graffiti artist in countries far removed from graffiti's origins in the US. They discuss the most popular graffiti locations, the attitudes of each country to the idea of graffiti art, and the network of established and emerging artists across the region.
All material in the book was collected at first hand by the authors, who travelled around Asia photographing pieces, throw-ups, drip tags, and more, as well as interviewing the featured artists.
GRAFFITI ASIA comes packaged with a DVD that includes a 28minute documentary by the authors SURIDH HASSAN and RYO SANADA.
