Graffiti books have become the new coffee table staple and with Billy Schon's Fresh Paint - NYC, the art form is destined to live forever through the author's photos. With over 400 images included, Fresh Paint documents a moment in time, a stand still of graff art that is destined to become destroyed from repainting or demolition. Schon worked fast to capture these moments of history through his new book, and now you can own a permanent part of NYC's underground scene by pre-ordering your book here. Available April 2010.

PRESS RELEASE

Over 400 eye-popping photos provide a decade-long tour of graffiti in New York City. Walls, trucks, and subway cars are featured with graffiti by the crews X-Men, KD, TNB, 156, RIS, AOK, TC-5, FAME CITY, COD, XTC, TFP, MCI, IF, DYM, 718, TD4, SMART, TATS CRU, FLY-ID, GFR, AKB, and many more. Because New York City has made a concerted effort to remove graffiti from the city, the images captured here will never be seen again. Walls were repainted and some buildings were demolished, keeping graffiti crews working fast to keep ahead of the trend. The author worked even faster to capture their ephemeral efforts. If you have a fascination with urban life and colorful expression, this book is definitely for you
