Publisher's description: Known only by his tag, RUN, the true identity of this internationally renowned mural artist has been kept secret for fifteen years. We now know him as Giacomo Bufarini -- a London-based man behind some of the most innovative graffiti art in recent years and an inspiration to young artists worldwide. Exploring the artist and the man behind RUN in equal measure, Time Traveller Artist Man follows his rise from a self-taught graffiti artist in Italy in the 1980's to his current work depicting large-scale, distinctive roller-painted figures. It details his first experiments in abandoned factories and various urban spaces in Ancona, Bologna, and Florence, as well as how the early influences of hip hop, art deco, and contemporary painting have shaped the nature of his art throughout his career. Through a showcase of his tools, studio, sketchbooks, photographs, paintings, stories, and prints, Time Traveller Artist Man explores the remarkable journey of the life and work of RUN.
