Nug show is art in Amsterdam and at the same time released a new book of 64 pages about him. The concept of the cover is really original and make each book unique. Check the video for a better understanding of the cover book concept. Unfortunately I don’t find any pictures or info about the content of the book instead of the short marketing text I found on the website I am just trying to be nice (pasted below).
I am just trying to be nice’ is a book about the work of Nug, published as a limited edition first run. This exclusive publication comes with a one of a kind book cover Nug made from a new piece of his work cut to pieces. Please note: every single copy has a unique cover made by the artist.
Amsterdam based design agency UNDOG – notorious for creating unorthodox and challenging visual communications – created a clean, subtle and at the same time an equally rough and raw design for the 64 page book.
This book contains the first true overview of Nug’s work: from exhibitions to graffiti pictures, video stills and paintings, it’s all here, all Nug, in all overwhelming intensity. This release is a collectors item for book lovers, graffiti haters and opinionated people.
Nug. Stockholm, Sweden.
Nug is a well known name in the graffiti scene. Apart from taking trains and walls on, he’s also created many controversial exhibitions, video’s and paintings. Some define his Works as plain vandalism, others clearly think this is what art is about. These strong opinionated differences even made it into the Swedish parliament and has kept many international art critics included in the debate.
