“Crash Kid Graffiti Archive” is a project that presents a selection of the best unreleased images from Massimo “Crash Kid” Colonna’s photographic archive, and focuses its attention exclusively on graffiti.
A meticulous choice of restored photos, ranging from 1985 to 1997, in cities such as New York, Paris, Rome, Monaco, Basel are exhibited alongside the works of the masters of writing, such as Bando, Mode 2, Dare, Can 2, Loomit, Lokiss, Darco , Skki, Swet, Crash Kid, Napal, Stand, Pane, Rusty, Zero T, Dayaki, Eron and many others.
A project born from the friendship and will of Napal and Ryo, the book, besides having the purpose of preserving this precious photographic material, was conceived to spread the use of masks for respiratory protection among the writing community, promoting the practice of painting safely to protect the health of writers.
The proceeds from the book will be donated to AIL (the Italian Association against Leukemia-Lymphomas and myeloma) which supports research and provides direct assistance to cancer patients.
This is a book that combines art with social commitment and help to people in need, and is a “must” for any true writing enthusiast.
