Artist ¿Niels Shoe Meulman: Painter¿ is an avalanche of visual poetry and poetic visuals, in which alert readers will find a story about an artist who rejected being called an artist, who ran several design and advertising studios, then invented the new art form Calligraffiti and became a globetrotting painter after all. After the worldwide success of his first book, ¿Calligraffiti: The Graphic Art of Niels Shoe Meulman (2010)¿, the artist and his co-author Adam Eeuwens take his bold venture to a place where street art meets abstract expressionism. Messing up book sections. Again. ¿Calligraffiti¿ gained followers within graphic design, architecture, typography, advertising, calligraphy and graffiti. Sharing an interest in the visual arts and an appreciation for print, they came to understand that a word is an image. In this volume Niels Shoe Meulman expands his ever-evolving artistic territory to include wild paintings and fine art, this time around in vivid full color. von "SHOE" Meulman, Niels
