Great reference for graffiti artists who don't have the social group to learn via the street.

I have all four of Scape's books, this one is a great follow up to his first one!

Format: Paperback
Scape Martinez's book, "Graff 2: Next Level Graffiti Techniques," is the second installment of basic graffiti techniques every beginner needs to know. Scape provides readers, students of graffiti, and professional graffiti writers with the foreground to understanding graffiti techniques. This book is a guide and foundation for students of graffiti art, but it's emphasis remains for every artist to create their own styles, express their own feelings, and demonstrate their own passions through graff art. Scape motivates readers to follow themselves, and does not preach to artists that they should do exactly as he does, or be confined to rules of art. Instead, he provides readers and artists alike, a vehicle from which to found their creations on, and then provides readers with reasons we, as students and artists, should consider in every aspect of our work. Scape poses the questions, guides us to find our own answers, and we resolve our own purpose for creating graffiti art.

I have all four of Scape's books, this one is a great follow up to his first one! Very well done and all of his books have terrific illustrations. He is a highly talented artist and if you are interested in graffiti art, his books won't disappoint!

This book teaches you about coloring, manipulating words and such. DO NOT GET THE KINDLE VERSION. It's black and white, so you will not see how the colors work with each other.

this is a softcover book, and was surprised to find it had been wrapped in a plastic bag, which was taped to secure it closed. it was boxed! with air bag padding, before they shipped it! usually the large soft covers are put into a plastic bag to ship, and so do suffer some damage, even if minor. this is a beautiful book, arriving in pristine condition, and is a perfect gift! thank you!

I have not had the opportunity to read through this book yet, however it is setup exactly like Scape's first book. I found the first to be a perfect supplement to the beginner graffiti artist's repertoire. This book is the next level, it will help to enhance your craft and I highly recommend purchasing this book even if you have not finished the first.

More About the Author

Scape Martinez is an accomplished multidisciplinary artist and writer. He was born in Newark, New Jersey, to Puerto Rican immigrant parents. Scape grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, and has been involved in graffiti art since the 1980's. Since then he has pushed the boundaries as to what graffiti/street art could be whether that's in fine art, public art, or even in the entrepreneur space.

As a recognized artist, his fine art paintings combine elements of graffiti and abstract expressionism to create large scale, rhythmic and expressive compositions that transcends mere technique.

His first book, "GRAFF: the Art and Technique of Graffiti," is an international bestseller. In 2009 he began public speaking engagements to discuss his unique perspective on art and creativity. His insightful, thought-provoking and highly visual lectures inform, inspire, and motivate both young adults and working professionals alike.
