Frank “Steam 156” Malt has recently created this book due to his tireless documentation of graffiti and he serves to preserve what the buff or the elements will certainly destroy.
It’s a great addition to anyone’s collection of graff books from around the world and we will post links at the bottom of this page so you know where you can get your hands on your own copy.
This post features a load of the artists work, that you will not find in the book (because we have so many photos we have decided to break this post into two chapters) #EXCLUSIVE
Steam156 is a graffiti and street art documenter with over 26 years experience of documenting graffiti art around the world.

He is a sought after commentator on graffiti culture, penning articles for magazines like Hip Hop Connection, Knowledge and Graphotism.
