Not many people are familiar with the story behind the book @thegrifters just released today.
Back in the summer of 2014, which i spent in prison, not being able to communicate and deliver content to The Grifters, i invited 4 new members to create and contribute in their personal blogs. I have been following the artists work since a while and their direction was absolutely relevant to the one i had for the future of The Grifters. Beside the young and talented photographers from the 1992 Collective (@adrianrobos & @danielluengo1992), @badyear85 & @sylvainlargot, the team joined a bright writer @jameshattrick
and a controversial illustrator @iwanprokhorov. •
That was the first step of expanding the The Grifters into an art collective. After my release and the organisation of few successful exhibitions in Paris i wanted to make a project, together with the freshly comprised collective. The opportunity came from the part of the kind @urban_spree gallery in Berlin, who invited The Grifters for a group exhibition. The concept of the show was to reveal the source code of The Grifters - to tell the story and to show the sincere beauty of graffiti culture & lifestyle, without looking or focusing on the graffiti pieces itself. The highlight for the show was the book called Graffiti Without Graffiti, which we build on a simple concept - each of the 5 authors has 36 pages to represent graffiti without showing graffiti pieces, using only photos, illustration or text.
The result came out as a solid 1,5kg, 200 colour pages book, sized 22 x 27cm, packed in special slip case and signed by all authors.
Huge thanks for the kind hospitality of Urban Spree, who offered us the great opportunity to welcome more than 1000 people in the opening night and to spend lovely time in Berlin.
Thanks to everybody who supported us and the whole project! 🙏
