A Burner is a piece of graffiti that is so good that it burns everything else around it. In other words, it is the best. In cities worldwide, graffiti art is constantly being taken to higher levels. The will to burn all resistance, to outdo all the others, brings about unexpected and amazing results. Graffiti Burners shows us how techniques have been refined and letter construction distorted, how colour combinations have blossomed and concepts developed. The competition for mastery is burning hot! In addition to amazing pictorial material, several of the writers talk about their pieces and what burners mean to them. Moreover, they offer tips and guidance to those who want to do a burner of their own. Graffiti Burners offers a unique opportunity to acquaint oneself with the progress of the last few years; to be inspired and impressed. In Graffiti Burners the world’s foremost writers show us their favourite works. In short, the best of the best! Aroe (UK), Bates (DK), Bio (USA), Kacao77 (D), OsGemeos (BR), Rime (USA), Scan (CA) and Suiko (JP) are just a few of the contributors to the book. Guess what, we’re also featured in the book!

After the Exchange with the very talented Nemo from Sarajevo we also recieved some sketches from his partner in crime ‘Mosk’… We wanted to go all out with these killer sketches and decided to paint them along the railtracks somewhere in Leeuwarden. This spot is one of our favorite spots to paint but we hadn’t been there since a while…
We had to do some serious gardening to get rid of all the reed and other plants which stood in front of the wall.
The back of the cans come in handy when removing old paint from the wall.
Romeo spend quite some time to get the sketches on the wall. Since both sketches had a different flow, we tried to balance them a bit. He pulled it off very nicely though.
Meanwhile Mega painted 3 b-boy characters next to the pieces and after that we worked together on both pieces.
Eventually we had to rush because it allready was getting dark, but we finished the wall just in time to get good pictures. Thanks Mosk for the killer sketches and we hope you like the outcome… We sure did… check the endresult here after the jump
