Graff Wars in stores now

International Store List
with information where to buy the Graff Wars book




When the movie
Star Wars: A New Hope, premiered in 1977,
it became the foundation of what
may be the biggest pop cultural phenomenon of our time.
As the movie reached the theaters,
a subculture, originating from The Bronx, NY
started its climb to a world wide expansion rarely seen before.
The art form, the music and the dance
emerging from this subculture,
drew their inspiration from the surrounding community
and from books, cartoons, advertising and movies.
Shortly after the release of the third movie,
Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

Beat Street premiered in Europe,
and the subculture Hip Hop became a phenomenon
for young people all over the Western world.
By the late 1970s and the early 1980s,
the Star Wars’ universe was a major source
of inspiration for graffiti artists,
and Darth Vader and Storm Troopers were frequently painted
on the subway trains in New York City
.
During the following years,
Star Wars as a concept surpassed the movies
and the Hip Hop culture spread throughout
Asia and Africa and became one of the
largest subcultures the world has ever seen.
New graffiti performers and new
Star Wars fans came forward,
and at the launch of
Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in 1999
rap was the biggest selling music genre in the US.
Hardly any other pop cultural phenomenon
has had a greater impact on youths these
last decades than the Star Wars’ universe has had.
18. September 2010, Kontur Publishing will issue Graff Wars,
a book documenting the great influence
the legacy of Star Wars has had on
graffiti and many of their performers.
What started out as an exclusive article about
graffiti inspired by the Star Wars movies
in the Norwegian graffiti magazine
Fat Cap’s 20th anniversary issue
,
has now become the book project Graff Wars.
It will bring together graffiti
inspired by Star Wars from all over the world.

Reports about the book have got an
immense response on the Internet,
and foreign distributors have shown great interest already.
From now until the launch there will be
info about the book on
Kontur Publishing’s Facebook page,
and there will be weekly updates of photos at
the Fat Cap blog
