SOFIA URBAN ART is the first summarizing publication on the graffiti and street art scene in the Bulgarian capital. The recently released volme is separated into four chronological chapters and parts on legal spots, exhibitions, festivals, STREET ART ≠ GRAFFITI, etc. The narration leads from early protest graffiti within the democratization process, upcoming namewriting in the mid 90s, the street art movement in the mid 2000s to urban art and murals within in the city until today.

For deeper insight into the city’s history and scene selected interviews are included with important figures like JAY63, Lachezar Boyadzhiev, VAPSKY, NDOE, RADAR, MORE, Destructive Creation, 140 Ideas, NASIMO and emircA.
