Petro x Fluorescent Smogg

The World's Most Stolen Book

Original Paintings

This new collection from Petro will be instantly recognisable to graffiti writers, fans and collectors all over the world. By filtering the pages of the seminal book Subway Art through his own process & personality Petro captures something that lies somewhere between history and memory; the culture of the movement and his own place within it.

 

Drawing on notions of collective memory and perception these paintings remind the viewer of their own formative experiences with graffiti, perhaps even triggering their first memories of it.

 

“In terms of mark making, I tried to paint the paintings in a way that captures the energy, motion and movement, with the format of the pages being buried deep in the subconscious of myself and many others like me, the paintings become memory of the book” - Petro

 

Subway Art is world renowned book by Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant, a portrayal of the New York Graffiti Scene first published in 1984. Known to graffiti writers, as “the bible” , its impact on the visual tapestry of society has in itself been biblical.
