Product Description

Product Description

You are here.





The original book, Graff, put you in touch with your creative style. Graff 2 is here to help you find your creative soul. Is it wildstyle or bubble letters? Flat or three-dimensional? Black and white or full color?





Delving deeper into the elements covered in his first book, graffiti artist Scape Martinez brings you into his world, sharing his approach to letters, color and design. From working it out with paper and pens to working large (and legally) on walls, Graff 2 reveals the nuts and bolts of graffiti style along with ideas and techniques for bringing those styles to life.





  • Preparation, technique, expression and meaning


  • 5 full-scale demonstrations show the creation of wall pieces from start to finish


  • Heavily illustrated with examples and step-by-step instruction throughout


  • Includes an expanded glossary of graffiti terms not covered in the first book




Artists and fans alike will appreciate this rare inside perspective on graffiti art. Take it to your wall. You have something to say. Put it out there for the world to see.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The second level and just as fun 23 Jun 2012
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Having really enjoyed looking at the structure and composition of Graffiti in Scape's first book (Graff) I eagerly awaited to see what would come next in order to help me not only appreciate the art form but also to learn the techniques and tricks that went into it.

This title is the next step up from the original and helps you to learn more about the form of the pieces, new styles to help create your own unique piece and also how to add your own effects. Add to this the fact that its well written, easily accessable by anyone with an interest and of course really helps bring the medium into its own which makes this set an invaluable guide. The only thing I would warn about however is make sure that if you are to do any Graffiti of your own that you have the permission of the walls owner as otherwise it's a crime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good 20 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very good book to understand the graffitti subculture, the tricks, the way it's made and the way to make your own. Step by step detailed instructions on all variations. Still it focuses more on the wildstyle. It's the most complex and the hardest to make. It's a good buy!
