Full of vibrant, energetic and explosive images, Broken Windows - Graffiti NYC documents the flowering of the graffiti movement of the post-train era. In the 1980's graffiti was pushed out of the subways as the trains were cleaned once and for all. In the 1990's, much of the graffiti action in New York migrated to the city's walls, enabling the writers to execute more refined and concept-driven large-scale pieces. Broken Windows contains insightful interviews, an extensive selection of women's graffiti, and features the work of more than 180 artists from The United States,Germany, France, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Holland, Italy, and Norway.
