Sacha Jenkins and David Villorente Release “World Piecebook”
In the midst of some disheartening news facing the graffiti scene (such as the possible closing of 5 Pointz in Queens and the recent cancellation of a graffiti exhibit which was set to appear at the Brooklyn Museum), authors Sacha Jenkins and David “Chino” Villorente have teamed up to give graffiti heads something to look forward to. Last week, their third book in the Piecebook series was released, entitled World Piecebook.
According to an official press release…
Graffiti goes global in this third volume of never-before-published blackbook drawings from writers around the world.
Like the hugely successful volumes it follows, this latest collection mimics that most valuable of graffiti gear – the blackbook. Over 100 private drawings by top artists from every corner of the globe are featured in this volume.
