Since the late nineties, Alex Fakso has been photographing graffiti, capturing its creation in train yards and subway stations. Many of these gritty images, documenting artists at work across Europe, were published in his book “Heavy Metal.” Now, the Italian photographer, a writer himself, has a new exhibition. “Underground,” opens this weekend at Luxembourg’s Extrabold gallery and will feature a showcase of his most recent creative action shots.

“Underground,” November 28 – December 24, Extrabold, Luxembourg

Nizza x Fakso
An artist, photographer and key documenter of rolling steel, revealing graffiti at its most uncompromising. Milan’s Fakso sees metal as a canvas, celebrating the tactics, technique and determination of the scene’s key players. On the ankle-high Nizza silhouette, the leather upper becomes a canvas, covered by a large graffiti image. The printed tongue, beige 3-Stripes and yellow bottom eyelet, foxing and rubber toe bumper sit on a black midsole, giving the silhouette the dark air of Fakso’s prolific output.
