From Here to Fame – Publishing
At From Here to Fame Publishing our roots are firmly set in urban culture. Not only do we produce literature about graffiti, street art, design, Hip Hop and the scenes and phenomena that surround it, we live it. Our team comprises of an international, assortment of urban culture activists, with backgrounds in graffiti writing, art & design, scene involvement and documentation. The initial idea was to create engaging and relevant books “from writers, for writers” that document and preserve graffiti history and legends at work. Inspired by how expressions of urban art evolved, this concept expanded in time to include all areas of urban culture, art, typography and design. All of our publications are collaborations with international artists, writers and researchers who have been personally involved in shaping or documenting the development of their respective scenes. The relationships formed with many of these artists and activists have been nurtured by individual members of our team throughout more than twenty-five years of involvement in the global urban art movement and through numerous off shoot cultural projects, exhibitions, and publications. This inside perspective not only gives us our edge, it means that our readers get the lowdown directly from the source. Through our collective experience and knowledge we promote the history, development and influence of these urban cultures in our society—with a keen focus on a young generation that is learning from its beginnings, and contributing to its future.
