Book Description

15 Sep 2007
"I dare anyone who has been to Italy, and especially Milan, in the past 10 years to claim that they have never seen the word 'DUMBO' written on the city walls. It's impossible!" Here, the artist behind those five obsessively repeated letters--who has brought the question "art or vandalism" to a country better known for its Renaissance painting and streamlined design--reveals himself and the enigmatic art underground that has nurtured him over the last decade. Photographs depicting the clandestine routines of graffiti writing for Italy's most popular street artist accompany almost 200 color pictures of Dumbo's work all over Italy and Europe. Artist Barry McGee--who honored Dumbo in a piece done for the European opening of the American street art show "Beautiful Losers"--says in a preface here, "Dumbo represents everything right in this world by doing everything we are told is wrong."

1.0 out of 5 stars Save Your Money... 21 Dec 2008
By Shine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
What this toy did to merit his own hardcover book is beyond me. How did this book even get made? There's about five pictures of sloppy, amateur "pieces" and the rest is "artsy" photos of people's feet and faces and tagged up walls. If you actually enjoy hardcore graff and want to see true style, buy Saber's book, Dondi's book, "Burning New York", or the Montana Writer's Team...but not this. It honestly looks like the work of a twelve year old. Art or vandalism? This is just another embarrassing, unskilled toy trying to get famous.
