Graffiti Burners - The Book


Graffiti Burners

by Björn Almqvist
The crème de la crème of graffiti pieces collected in a new Dokument Press book. 
145 of the best and most recent work of the world’s foremost graffiti writers, more than 70 of whom comment on the pieces and say what burners mean to them.



A “burner” is a graffiti piece that is so distinctive that it “burns” all the other paintings surrounding it. Graffiti and street art are constantly developing, and there is a clear will among practitioners to constantly take the art form to new levels and refine their technique.
The quest to surpass oneself and all takers has led to unex- pected and astonishing results. Graffiti Burners collects 145 of the world’s foremost writers. In addition to showing their best work from the past two years, around 70 of them talk about what a burner means to them, and share their tips on how to create one yourself. The book provides the reader with a unique opportunity to understand more about the dramatic development of the art form of graffiti in the last few years with fine illustra- tions and interesting reading. It is an important part of graf- fiti documentation and a must for street art cognoscenti.

"I was happy to receive it today and can appreciate the huge nice quality work on the book and awesome worldwide best burners. A must have! No doubt. "
- Azek, LEC

“The meaning of a burner is when another writer looks at that
piece and says that shit is on fire. Even the average person will
look at it and say it’s hot!”
- Bio, TATS 


“A burner needs to suck the life out of every other piece near it
and stand alone, as the focus, the centre of attention.”
- Aroe, MSK, HA, 7TH LETTER
