About This Print

UNUN

Calligraffiti is a combination of calligraphy and graffiti. Calligraphy is about the art of writing and can have many forms. 

Graffiti is the art of getting your (pseudo) name up in an urban environment. Perfected in New York City and now a worldwide phenomenon.

The fairly new art of graffiti and its somewhat rigid rules prompts us to look further back into the history of writing. This is exactly what Niels Shoe Meulman has been doing since his teens, and at the beginning of this century he started combining the two. Thus resulting in Calligraffiti: traditional handwriting with a metropolitan attitude.

Happy Un Birthday was printed in 2012 whilst Niels was in Australia for his Calligraffiti Up Side Down tour. He exhibited in Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and Singapore. Rather than ship artwork from abroad, Niels Shoe Meulman made site-specific art in each city including two limited edition screen prints with us here at Dangerfork Print.
