(Preface) 'A lot of people try to find a meaning in Graffiti, a message against violence or racism for example. Others compare Graffiti art to urban aggressions and ghetto or gang related activities.
In reality, Graffiti was born out of the Hip Hop culture as a positive artistic activity with one basic principle: to give your best and outdo yourself! The assimilation of Graffiti as an act of public degradation was only a misconception conceived years later by politics and the media. The 123Klan members had always created with the same vision as the original Graffiti writers. They design their art in a spontaneous fashion and always with the same philosophy: to create and give your best through complex and structured Graffiti pieces; delving deep into details and never leaving anything to chance in terms of the design.
The only difference is that 123Klan lives in the Digital Era and therefore uses modern tools to attain that.
This variety in media has enabled 123Klan to keep the original and artistic vision: to give everyone access to a new form of graphic expression. Quality-driven in every one of their creations, be it on walls, print or web - 123Klan constantly pushes their graphic style forward.
In order to understand a little bit better about 123Klan's artistic vision, this book presents the crew's evolution through different pieces of work and personal studies.
