Artist Niels "Shoe" Meulman gained international fame as the graffiti artist “Shoe” from Europe’s legendary Crime Time Kings and has since gone on to become an acclaimed Dutch calligrapher, typographer and designer. He explores the contours of words as images in "Calligraffiti" - his hybrid art form which blends calligraphy and graffiti.

‘Calligraffiti - the graphic art of Niels "Shoe" Meulman’ is an impressive publication showcases a fine selection of artworks by Meulman as he presents for our viewing pleasure a wonderful series of fast phrases and upbeat witticisms in the form of captivating typographic masterpieces. Every spread offers two interacting visuals. This interplay of contrasts, such as ‘idea-execution’ or ‘rise-fall’, makes this volume much more than a collection of the artist’s best work; it unveils the basis of all graphic art.

The book also includes an essay by esteemed writer Adam Eeuwens tracing Meulman’s creative progression as well as a foreword written by John Langdon the highly regarded symbologist and ambigram specialist known for his work Dan Brown’s ‘Angels & Demons’ and perspicacious comments from Meulman himself sprinkled throughout.
