Rackgaki Japanese Graffiti


The first dedicated to Japan's explosive graffiti scene, this book illustrates the work of the major graffiti writers working in Japan today.  RackGaki showcases the creativity that lies within this new and relatively unexplored form of contemporary Japanese art. Interviews with the writers and the authors' own experiences in documenting the different aspects of this subculture, fill out a picture of an art form at the cutting edge and often at odds with police and civic authorities. 


An accompanying DVD brings to life the still imagery of the book, focusing on the different environments which serve as the Japanese graffiti writers/'/ canvas. There is also footage of graffiti being created, both legal and illegal.
