The Graffiti Trucks of Paris
March 23rd, 2017

The Graffiti Trucks of Parismarcvallee.co.uk

“The pictures here highlight how artists have brought the creative activism of subversive graffiti into (or onto) these commercialised infrastructures of urban mobility. As trucks and vans move consumable goods of the elite urban economy around the city, they carry with them the viruses of activism. Like the New York subway trains in the 1970s, the graffiti trucks of Paris are a mobile gallery of graffiti and its affront to the sterile spaces of urban commodity movement.” – Dr. Oli Mould.

The Graffiti Trucks of Paris is available to buy online and is also stocked by Claire de Rouen Books, Foyles, Flotsam Books in Tokyo and The Photographers’ Gallery.
