The Beginnings of Australian Graffiti: Melbourne 1983-93

Duro Cubrilo, Martin Harvey and Karl Stamer

 

384 pages, Hardback, 280 x 225 mm, Fully illustrated throughout.

 

Kings Way chronicles the events, spaces, materials and folklore that made up the lives of Melbourne's early graffiti writers.

 

About this Title

 

A quarter of a century ago, the New York City hip-hop phenomenon left its mark on Australian walls-a graffiti-writing culture was born.

 

In a barrage of blinding colour, cryptic words and bombed out train carriages, Kings Way tells the story of Melbourne's emerging underground writing scene and the youth whose sole purpose was to get up. Using the city's walls and trains as their ephemeral canvas, these writers pioneered the elaborate spray-paint artworks that continue to dominate Melbourne's cityscape.

 

With more than 1200 full colour images, this volume captures the rapid changes in styles in these early years, as Melbourne's graffiti evolved from basic tags through to explosive full colour masterpieces.

 

Part visual encyclopaedia, part social history, Kings Way chronicles the events, spaces, materials and folklore that made up the lives of Melbourne's early writers. Compiled by active participants in the subculture across this period, it pays tribute to the individuals and crews who laid the foundation for Melbourne's reputation as a graffiti style capital.

"A pair of alleged vandals were captured by a New Zealand couple and forced to dance on camera until police arrived.

 

The two young men had allegedly sprayed graffiti tags on a fence at the home in Whangarei on Thursday night last week.

 

The next day a couple who live at the home tracked them down and forced them to come back to their house where they called the police.

 

While they waited for police to arrive, the couple took out a video camera and forced the men to dance for at least ten minutes.

 

"You f--- with us we'll f--- with you twice as hard," a woman is heard saying on the video, which was originally posted to YouTube but has since been removed.

 

It was not clear how the couple managed to capture the teens or whether a weapon was involved.

 

The man filming the incident, who has been identified only as Izzy, told 3News.co.nz that when police showed up at the house they burst out laughing.

 

Four other officers were allegedly called in to watch the performance.

 

Whangarei police have now released a statement saying they are investigating the incident and the actions of the police involved.

 

One of the alleged taggers has been charged with willful damage."

 

 

fucken rednecks, hope their house gets bombed the fuck out.
