Roger Gastman’s Tools of Criminal Mischief book

December 23 2010 . 05:08am

 

Roger Gastman’s

Tools of Criminal Mischief


Roger Gastman has created more books on graffiti culture than anyone. He’s edited and published countless artist monographs and anthologies and even served as Consulting Producer for the film documentary "Exit Through The Gift Shop".


For Tools of Criminal Mischief, Mr. Gastman has trawled his personal archive to present the quirky stories and visual oddities that inspire him personally; from the story of infamous Baltimore Graffiti Writer SHAKEN, to 1940’s hobo train art, ’70s gang graffiti, photos of graffiti writers’ personal aerosol arsenals, spray paint collectibles, ephemera and more.


In the author’s own words – " The danger, history, process, spray cans, magic markers, and the local styles are just a few parts of graffiti that I fixate on. Different aspects interest me at different times, but what always continues to excite me is the oddity – especially pedestrian graffiti and the strange pop-culture references".

TRAFIK presents The Official Trailer for To Live & Ride In L.A.

TRAFIK presents The Official Trailer for To Live & Ride In L.A. (toliveandrideinla.com)

Over a year in the making, To Live & Ride In L.A. is the first feature-length film about L.A.’s underground fixed-gear culture. Directed by David Rowe (Fast Friday), the documentary explores a side of Los Angeles few outsiders have ever seen.

To Live & Ride In L.A. features talented local riders tearing up the streets with first-time visitor Keo Curry (Fast Friday, Macaframa), one of the living legends of the sport. From races through rush-hour traffic to midnight loft parties, To Live & Ride In L.A. is a fast-paced trip through the busy streets and back-alleys of one of the world’s largest cities.

The second feature film from David Rowe, To Live & Ride In L.A. will challenge viewers’ perceptions of a city better known for its paparazzi, fake breasts, and traffic jams.

The soundtrack for To Live & Ride in L.A. highlights top artists from record labels such as Dangerbird Records(dangerbirdrecords.com), Dim Mak Records, Anticon, SWTBRDS, and I Heart Comix and includes music by Silversun Pickups, Hot Hot Heat, Bad Veins, The Willowz, Minus The Bear, Bambu, DaVinci, Crown City Rockers, Datarock, Kid Infinity, Sea Wolf, From Monument To Masses, Darker My Love… and more!

TRAFIK is a group of creatives who love biking the streets of L.A. and the world. From Japan to Australia, Europe to South Africa, urban fixed-gear cycling has become a symbol of a new generation that isn’t afraid to bomb hills, split lanes, and defy norms.

TRAFIK is Global Fixed Gear Culture.
