Starting from the foundations and historical documents of the time, we will discover how the most complex and enduring American art movement based on letters developed. Thanks to a calligraphic approach, we will see how from a simple “TAG”, we will arrive at the “PIECE”. A journey through the letters, the loops, the rules to be broken with imagination and logic to discover what is behind the “WILD STYLE OF NEW YORK”
