The King of 3-D style writing
DAIM is one of the most revolutionary graffiti artists of all time and this book offers the opportunity to experience the most complete and extensive collection of his works to date. In 1989, DAIM sprayed his first piece on a feeder pillar outside of his parent’s house. Now, in Mirko Reisser [DAIM]: 1989 – 2014, he reflects on his fascinating artistic career that has spanned the last 25 years.
Off the grid and into the gallery
By tracing the evolution of his work from illegal street art and vandalism, spray-painting walls and buildings during his early career, to the more recent large-scale museum installations, the book offers a never-before-seen insight into the development of the artist through an extensive collection of murals, canvases, sculptures, graphics and tapings. Of the 300 images included in this book, some have never been published whilst others grant an exclusive behind-the-scenes insight into DAIM’s intricate production process.
