“Street-edge meets high-end design as artist Niels Meulman explores the contours of words as images in “Calligraffiti” – his hybrid art form which blends calligraphy and graffiti. He presents a wonderful interplay of contrasts with a series of fast phrases and upbeat witticisms in the form of captivating typographic masterpieces.” (press release)

The book release will be part of the corresponding “Calligraffiti” exhibition at the Common Ground Gallery in Berlin. Those of you who are in Berlin, should make sure to check out the show!
