Contemporary Urban Calligraphy

Combine calligraphic styling with graffiti attitude and you get Graffigraphy.

This piece, a collaboration by Futura and Crash that was in the Graffiti New York 80's Show in Paris,  has some wonderful flourishes that remind you of oriental paintings of yore. Limiting the palette to red, black and blue gives it some muscle.

Just so you know, Futura had one of his works sell for $56,250 at Auction in December.
