There is plenty of creativity within the international graffiti and street art scene. Writing text messages in public spaces has been a unique art form and a means of communication between humans for over 30,000 years. Many street artists work only with text, written messages or poems, and not necessarily only with colourful murals, styles, tags and logos. Street Messages is the first publication that delivers a deep insight into this literary form of expression in the world of global street art.
The streets are full of artistic and poetic forms of expression – messages written by graffiti and street artists. Street Messages offers a historic background to written messages in public spaces and introduces more than 80 artists from across the world who work exclusively or partly with text. The vast body of information and numerous exclusive quotes and words of wisdom makes Street Messages the first book to shed some light on this as yet undocumented form of street art culture.
Features artwork by Banksy, Dolk, Ben Eine, Faith 47, Flint…, Kid Acne, Know Hope, Laser 3.14, Mobstr, Skki and many more.

(Travelling through Burma - A journey to the Shan people)
Together with co-author Elena Jotow I put together this book as a true representation of this fascinating country with a tragic
dictatorship as government. The book shows the beautiful landscape and cultural monuments, that this unknown country has to offer. At the same time it shows the readers the tragedy of the
human-rights abuses, the civil-war against the ethnic minorities and the sheer poverty caused by the economic mismanagement by the dictators.
On 200 pages the book gives a good insight into this South-East Asian country with a glance into her history, a journey through the country and an insight to the ongoing conflicts and problems.
