“ there has never been a book written in this way about this cultural movement, transcending the average contemporary street art offering, actually following the timeline of the artist’s life and development, told through his own words and those of his contemporaries. A creative and inspirational journey through the origins of DIY, movements in art and action sports, and the birth of a new youth culture. The most influential and famous individuals within the culture collectively share their experiences in this portrait of the neo contemporary rennaisance man. “
