Skeme and Dondi

Subway Art, by Henry Chalfant and Martha Moore was a landmark publication that brought graffiti and hip hop culture to the world. Subway Art inspired me to start writing. I ‘borrowed’ a copy from a local bookshop which was subsequently ‘borrowed’ from me, never to be returned. The book got a reprint in 2003 (the one I now have) and a special large format 25th anniversary edition was released in 2009. Here’s Henry and Martha proudly talking about Subway Art, it’s history and explaining what graffiti essentially means.
