    Only issue is I wish I had learned a bit more about the process behind the graffiti artists work, but besides that, definitely a really interesting, cool book.

    Had this book for several years, today finally I finished it. Starting from my Macau days, I have a special love for street art, to be specific, graffitis. The book illustrated me the reason, it is because it's a special way of expressing one's thought, an illegal way in most of the cases. However, most of the artists chosen to the book were of traditional tags, with their 3D letters, a bit boring. Only Bansky, Pisa73 are embedded with meanings. More anonymous graffitis are inspiring.

Second thing is the structure of the book. It starts with North America, then Europe section, then it is the section called "The rest of the world" including Africa, Asia and Australia and New Zealand, which I found disturbing. Why these places cannot be named Asia Pacific or something else? Are Africa and all the above places only the rest of the world? I question the point of the view the author holds. In the beginning authors wrote they roamed the world to have this book edited, but it gives the feeling of a bias in terms of structures. Probably because they are all artists after all.

While the neighborhood is residential it’s also unincorporated and thus slightly off the grid. Our back deck is near a serene creek path—mountains in the distance—long loops to walk and walk. As we were looking at the house I was surprised to see “FUCK THE POLICE” scrawled in red spray paint on the path where the back area merges with the creek. At least it didn’t say, “YAY POLICE!” (the cops or the band), we joked. A little farther down the path, “MUNCH BACON” was written in the same red scrawl. But I couldn’t figure out what that meant. Someone had to tell me it was a reference to the police, as in pigs/bacon. Before this I was engaged in an absurd conversation about how maybe “MUNCH BACON” was a reference to bacon being really popular right now (it's in cupcakes and wrapped around chocolate-covered churros at fairs in Orange County, California, etc.). As a semi-vegetarian, bacon popularity doesn’t please me, so you can imagine my relief when hearing “MUNCH BACON” meant eating the police! I am comfortable with that idea because when I was a child my mother bought all of us custom t-shirts that said, “EAT THE RICH.” After writing a review of Banksy’s “Exit Through the Gift Shop,” and in light of the breathtaking graffiti in this book, I’m thinking, really considering, I’ll make my own message on the path, in the wettest reddest paint:

    I'm a bit biased to the graffiti and street art world. Why? Frankly, my boyfriend is an established artist who is featured in the currently renowned Street Art exhibit at the MOCA here in Los Angeles (even Banksy has attended) and we, together, are involved in a street art duo project. The Graffiti World series is known amongst not only art-lovers but the artist themselves.

Delightfully featuring some of the greats but also diving deeper into the world of some of street art's lesser-known artists, Graffiti World will open your eyes past just the art of Banksy or Swoon. This is one of those coffee table books that you can own for years and you will STILL come across a photo (or two) that you have yet laid your eyes on. End result? You can namedrop artists and impress that art-loving guy or gal at the coffee shop next Friday. Clear, concise, and entertaining. Welcome to street art. It isn't just vandalism, ladies and gents.

    Cu o scurta introducere pentru cei mai putin familiarizati cu arta graffiti, cu texte concentrate si sugestive si cu puneri utile in context, cartea lasa imaginile sa vorbeasca – contine peste 2000 de fotografii a lucrarilor a peste 180 de artisti din toate colturile lumii (din pacate, nu regasim nici un artist roman aici). O rasfoiesti cu orele, te pierzi in peisajele urbane desenate, intri in lumea fantastica a grafferilor si inveti sa privesti altfel orasul.

    Perhaps not the best-written or most informative of books, but it serves well as an introduction. The photographs are stunning, as seeing as they take up 90% of the space I can't complain :)

    A good representation of street art and graffiti around the world but could have done with a little more context and coverage of art from Asia/Australia for sure.

    Graffiti World, one of my all time favs . Me being a graff artist and always looking for new ideas this book opened up the world of graff like brand new box of sneakers.

One thing I love about this book is the fact that it’s like a trip around the world in only about 3 days. I also like the art style and pictures. And finally I really like the whole layout of the book itself. This book is like wham...it’s like a ride on American Airlines. I mean they take you from the Americas to Europe in like 100 pages. The smashing and crashing of how walls are destroyed in other countries fractionates me to the fullest, and being able to travel the world to see them all is so great...especially since I don’t have to leave my room. The explosion of art in this book is friggin overwhelming. I like opened the book and wham I was hit by a train of art. The art styles they had in other parts of the world were like really crazy...from wildstyle to doing different throw-ups and various tags. And every time I open this book I see something brand new...and well it’s awesome. The books layout is just really cool. I love how the pictures just flash out with color and they are all original. I even found some computer-programming artists that do their work on the computer. Take syndrome studios, an organization that makes graffiti on the computer. I looked them up and they also did some work with rap artist in making music videos. The research that went into this book was really extensive and well done. In conclusion all I have to say is that this book is the ish and I really enjoy it. The trip around the world in some amount of pages, to the crazy graffiti pictures that were taken. And the fact that this book gave me something outside of its pages was just great.

    I learned a lot from this book. I always had thought of graffiti as an amazing artform, but never was a big fan of tagging. This book showed so many levels and styles to the art, but also made me understand the idea of tagging a lot more as well. When you boil it down to its simplest point, it could be said that all artists and writers are tagging the world - trying to get their name out there. It was very cool to see the graffiti of so many cultures around the world. The layout and photography are I learned a lot from this book.

The only complaint I really have would be that there wasn't enough text to satisfy my curiosity. Like I said, I learned a lot. It's just that now there is a lot more that I would like to learn.

    this book suffers from a couple of flaws. first off there's just too much stuffed into it. the author tries to compile a million different crews and artists. this causes the art to become almost a second thought and a thought that doesn't really showcase anything in particular. on top of everything there's a real bias to the Americas and Europe. the rest of the world gets the smallllllest portion of the book. overall its just an OK book, that I ended up glancing through more quickly than I'd tho this book suffers from a couple of flaws. first off there's just too much stuffed into it. the author tries to compile a million different crews and artists. this causes the art to become almost a second thought and a thought that doesn't really showcase anything in particular. on top of everything there's a real bias to the Americas and Europe. the rest of the world gets the smallllllest portion of the book. overall its just an OK book, that I ended up glancing through more quickly than I'd thought I would have. it failed to grab my attention and (I think) if you're going to call your book "graffiti world" you should actually showcase the entire world, not just three quarters of it.

    This is an awesome book. It has tons of pictures off of the streets (and walls and fire hydrants and light poles). The book's chapters are organized by continent. The artists are listed in alphabetical order in their continent. THe book gives details on the impact of street art on individual continents and the artist's individual style. Graffiti World may be one of the most inspirational art books you'll ever read.

    a useful reference book. great for art lovers. unfotrunately, the book doesn't contain many details on the artists (how often they paint, inspiration, mediums, influence), but, considering the amount of artists in the book, it's understandable. if you are looking for one specific artist, this isn't the book for you. if you want to admire street art in general, i recomend it.

    Great for photos. Fun and good. However... lots of prolific and lesser known artists are not included. I'm aware it would be difficult to present all graff artists in one book I was surprised that certain artists were not included. If this book interests you, I also recommend Graffiti Women (same series).

    This book was insteresting......the graphics were very good. The information was limited. I thought I would learn more about graffiti. The book showcased different graffiti artists from around the world. I did learn about tagging ; artists who want to literally leave their mark on society. It gets a 3 1/2 rating from me.

    Picture book of graffiti of the world. Interesting. Why I started this book: Graffiti was part of my daily commute in DC. I thought that this was a cool concept and I wanted to see the art and history of it. Why I finished it: Waiting for my dinner to finish cooking, I flipped it through it. Not as cool as I was expecting.

    Oddly enough, I was checking out this book online at the store not long back, and walked by the other day to see it in the window! I've only done a casual flip-through as of yet, but it seems like a pretty comprehensive and well-made tome. I saw some fantastic graffiti in Italy, so I'm very interested to see what the rest of the world has to offer.

    If you love graffiti art, you'll love this book. It is covered with many, many graffiti artists and their works. It's a beautiful hardcover and the inside glossy pages are vibrant with color. There are short bios for the works and artists as well. It's a nice book to add to your collection.

    This book was pretty disappointing. Most of the art was great--as to be expected--but a lot of the actual write-ups about the artists sucked and had nothing to offer. Get this book if you want a pretty cool gallery of graffiti, not if you're looking to read about it.

    Must have been that high school boyfriend that introduced me to the art that graffiti is...living in LA helped too. Wish it appeared more on canvases than say, the new wall just built for the library...

    This is another one that I'm not sure can really count as read. Since it isn't focused like Graffiti Women is it ends up feeling kind of diluted. There is some amazing work in this, but for the most part the work in it isn't all that great.
