UPDATE


Online Shopping: closed now, back soon

The safety of our visitors, friends and all who work with us at the RA is our highest priority. In line with the advice from Public Health England, the RA is closed temporarily; we have now taken the further decision to close our online shop in the short term, and to minimise non-essential activity.

We will be in touch once online shopping is available again, and are using the opportunity to improve the site and online experience we offer: we promise it will be better than ever! Meanwhile, if you have a query about an existing order, please contact us.

Whilst the front doors of the RA are closed, and for the time being the online shop, we will continue to offer creative inspiration to enjoy from home, and new ways of connecting. Visit us at Royal Academy of Arts, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Sign up to receive RA emails and find out once the online shop is open.

Thank you for your continued support. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the online shop and in person again soon.

Wishing you all the very best,
The Royal Academy of Arts Team

Product story

These images represent five European cities through their surface markings. Exploring the interaction between a city and its citizens as recorded by graffiti and advertising. Sinclair's photographs occupy a place between documentary and abstraction - a scrawled word or a scrap of a fly-poster are at once physical scars on a wall and marks hovering graphically on a picture plane. In this beautifully produced book, Sinclair examines the surface of European cities. We are invited to look at graffiti and other 'unofficial' interventions anew: not as aggressive intrusions but rather as part of an ongoing collaboration project to interpret the modern city.
