CHICAGO, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Momentum Art Tech brings the gritty passion and often misunderstood graffiti world to life comic-book-style with Modern Urban Legends, the first comic book series visualizing the realities and harshness of graffiti-writing culture. This story, written by artist TEEL ONE, is artistically created to open your eyes on this overshadowed society.
Hundreds of books and magazines have told the story and documented graffiti culture, but this is the first comic book series based on real life stories from one of Chicago's most well-known graffiti writers. The series portrays the challenges its main character, RAZE faces in school, with his peers and living this underground lifestyle. Creatively designed visuals support the story with background tags and subtle references to past and current writers and artists. Modern Urban Legends is the first edition in this series and was designed for both the graffiti writers and those looking for more insight into this world. The ten-page story can be purchased for $3 at the store or ordered by contacting Momentum Art Tech at 773-441-4842 or via email at [email protected]. Copies will be available at the official release party on Thursday, August 21st 8:30pm to Midnight at Gallery Bar Chicago, located at 738 N Clark St. Chicago IL 60654.
