In recent years, Chemistry Publishing have published a number of yearbooks in collaboration with graffiti artist Swet. This third book in the series contains a selection of more than 300 painted walls and trains, swinging sketches and some personal stories of artists he has worked with during the year 2019.
Swet's approach on graffiti is always from the original mindset of the culture. From his perspective graffiti belongs in the streets and on the trains. Also after "normal" life get in his way in so many ways he still manage to paint without changing his perspective. Filling surfaces with funky letters, fresh connections and a crazy swing are only possible for writers who can achieve the same energetic performance and quick powerful execution.
The inner pages are digitally printed on 150 grams Rebello paper and all covers are printed with a proofing press on high quality linen.
This is the first book in the series made from start to finish in their own studio.
