    Discussion started by Love509 - Jan 4, 2005

    I am some what of a fan of Rilo's Train Killing European style and I have wanted to get the Overground book ever since I saw him in Area 08. But the only logical place I can find it is at Bombing Science and they want $40 for it! I much rather spend that money on paint, drugs, or drink.

    Well before I show some pictures.. I wanted to put up somethings I found from some sites.

    This first bit of info is from a site that has info on Overground and little bits about the writers..

    "RILO:
    Rilo has been one of Stockholm’s most diligent graffiti writers since the latter part of the 90s. The subways of Europe have been his support, and fatcap his tool. Since the turning of 2002-2003, Rilo has been working under a new signature, and we are unlikely to see any more works under his old one."

    So my question from this is what is "Rilo's" new name?

    Ok now for some flix..
    I know you may have seen some or most of these before and that some have already been posted on this site.. But there are not many Rilo flix out there..

    Well here is the over ground cover
    http://venus.walagata.com/w/honor509/Overground.jpg

    Here is more info from Artcrimes on Overground

    Overground
    9 of the finest Scandinavian graffiti writers!

    The book Overground - 9 Scandinavia Graffiti Writers portraits some of the best and most wellknown graffiti writers from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

    Scandinavia has been known for innovative and unique graffiti for at least a decade. Scandinavian writers are often represented in different graffiti magazines from all over the world. Their styles are original, progressive and sometimes minimalistic, an equivalent to the much respected Scandinavian design. 7 authors have made portraits of 9 of the most interesting Scandinavian graffiti writers. Subjects like creativity, driving forces and to work anonymously are discussed.

    "Change is important" says Swedish writer Phily. Scandinavian graffiti finally has grown up. For the writers in Overground one important aspect of graffiti is to communicate their own thoughts through their work. That means that graffiti is constantly under change. The expressions pictured in Overground range from clean graphic works to naivistic, expressionistic and aggressive pieces and tags. Writing in public space means you encounter varied opinions from those who donít paint. "everything and everyone can confront me" says Danish writer Tele who mostly puts up poetic posters while people of the city walk by.

    The writers featured are Ance, Egs, Ikaroz, Kegr, Maes, Mr Mucho, Phily, Rilo and Tele. The authors are Josefine Adolfsson, P rra Andreasson, Tobias Barenthin Lindblad, Malcolm Jacobson, Jacob Kimvall, Sara Larsson and Torkel Sj strand.

    Overground gives a fascinating insight to a world-wide culture. The book is a luxurious coffee-table book with many photographs, mostly previously unissued.

    Overground is published by Dokument, also publisher of the book They Call Us Vandals, and Underground Productions magazine. Overground is edited by Malcolm Jacobson and Tobias Barenthin Lindblad

    Overground book
    176 pages, 100% color- "In this book, nine of the most interesting Scandinavian graffiti writers open their photo albums and their hearts. Each has a personal pictorial language and his own thoughts on graffiti and life. The pictures and thoughts in this book were compiled by a crew of seven journalists and photographers". Personnaly, this is one of my favorite book. The pictures are just fantastic and the featured writers are well choosen (hardcore street bombers, subway writers and street-art artists). Can't get any better.

    Well that wraps it up.. Maybe I will find the book somewhere cheaper than $40+Shipping..

    Ha! well, interesting copy and paste work indeed but are you a toy or what?
    Do you seriously think that anyone would give away Rilo's new name?
    No matter how much you love the style (or claim to love the style) I for one (and anyone in this forum who actually knows the new name) won't give it away. Do your own homework or if you really want to impress Rilo, get off the Internet...if you've read the WUFC interview from XG you should know that they hate the Internet....
