It was legitimate that the most prolific crew from the most bombed city in Europe would launch an editorial project of the same dimensions. We’re talking about Berlin’s 1UP, short for One United Power.

But their book doesn’t talk about their irrepressible activity in Berlin and the litres and litres of paint with which they’ve covered walls, buildings, trains, and subways. The XXX pages provide us with photographs that portray specific perpetrations from all over the world. From Brasil, Cuba, Thailand, or Morroco through to Poland, Finland, or Portugal. That’s to say, it’s a collection of postcards of stories about graffiti’s global reach in the 21st century, told from the unified perspective of a crew that doesn’t acknowledge individuals.

Just reading the interesting prologue in which 1UP’s ideals are defined, and their apology for the appropriation of public image is given, we can discern whether or not graffiti has a final purpose or if it’s just an excuse to have adventures around a world that is beginning to get too small.
