Strictly Toys 3 (magazine & t-shirt)

Publisher: Strictly Toys
Strictly Toyz is the only regular print magazine that focuses on toy graffiti culture, citizens writing and bad urban poetry. Edited by the Academic of graffiti Jaume Gómez, Strictly Toyz publishes its third issue in a context that has redefined culture on a global level.
This time he does it in double format with 180 full color pages of communicative garbage a great synonymous with humanity. At Strictly Toyz we understand that for mainstream society and the graffiti subculture, graphic garbage establishes the margin between the visually acceptable and the unworkable, between what remains inside and what remains outside graffiti subculture. But, without its existence it would be impossible to establish its own limits.
In this third issue we have decided to strongly cover the phenomenon of poetry and urban writing that is combined with toy graffiti and graphic experimentation to shape a more extensive edition. More than 294 shots of creations that possess the iconic magic that we have been documenting these years: inscriptions, insults, adolescent writing in which we detect a great participatory growth of women, writing from outsiders, sexual offers, figuration of all kinds and infra-graffiti (even suburban) that stands out for its particular execution materials, its forms and strokes, their colors, their references or their particular inscription in the context
From Catalonia, Philosophia Callejera has provided us with endless photographs focused especially on surreal writing executed by all kinds of citizens. From Madrid, our great collaborator E-1000 has once again surprised us with his powerful infra-graffiti photographs that emerged in mostly rural contexts. From Valencia, Lucas Sanchis has also offered us a good assortment of toy graffiti mostly executed within the city. In addition, the photographic fund of Strictly Toyz has provided the rest of the materials, especially deepening infra-graffiti and surreal writing.
