Straight Lines

Markus Christl: Straight Lines

“Type isn’t merely a medium of communication, it expresses a personnality or style.” This new style reveals the exciting process of the graffiti artist’s craft, from the rudimentary fusion of letters to finsl impact. German graffiti writers ECB and RESO have been carefully documenting their collaborative works since they started painting in the 1980’s. ECB and RESO approach their craft with a meticulous, graphic design sensibility, introducing a unique artistic twist to the form. Not your typical fly-by-night graffiti artists, this pair have honed their craft. These newly-documented pieces, some large scale, some concept-driven, are fine examples of work done with impeccable care. The high quality photography and reproduction invites the reader to scrutinize every amazing detail of the work.
