‘London Burners’ by Jete Swami

Jete Swami gives you a close and intimate look at the graffiti artists of the United Kingdom in London Burners, a new book from Prestel Publishing. Britain has a love-hate relationship with graffiti artists – on the one hand, mavericks like Banksy have thrust the UK into the first world of graffiti – yet at the same time, the councils and police of Britain work harder than almost any other country on earth to put these writers in prison. Swami intersperses displays of the art with interviews, from stories of running from the police, to talking about making a personal, emotive connection to the pieces. A wonderful look at graffiti from someone who you can truly feel loves it and lives it.
