Bad Graffiti is a humorous celebration of the graffiti seen everyday in our cities and often overlooked. 

Bad Graffiti looks at the plethora of graffiti that adorns our cities at a ubiquitous, popular cultural level. It is a record of the graffiti of the everyday, not of the named ‘artists’ who have contributed to the many books on graffiti ‘art’ over the past ten years or so.

Scott Hocking has been photographing graffiti since 2007, focusing on the humorous commentary decorating urban landscapes and particularly in areas of decay or abandonment. Hocking’s photographs, collected here for the first time, tell the story of the everyday and showcase the areas or markings so often seen but also overlooked by others.

Bad Graffiti is a funny, informative and at times irreverent look at the urban landscape today, making a great gift for those interested in the city and popular culture.

Barry McGee has probably had more books and zines published on him than any other artist from his school. Starting with Deitch Projects’s 1999 exhibition catalog The Buddy System, all the way to his current release from Alleged Press, with a multitude of other independent publications in between. Add to the list will be McGee’s forthcoming book on the occasion of his first major survey at Berkeley’s BAM/PFA this fall. It will cover over two decades worth of work that span from the streets to art institutions. The book will include over 450 photos, many of which have never been published as well as an oral history on the Mission School by McGee’s friends and mentors. Though the book may resemble his others, McGee has designed it himself, it will likely be more structurally defined than his previous publications. The self titled book is set to be released on September 30th. You can pre-order from Amazon today.
