The main aim of this book is to explain how graffiti-artist cooperates with galleries and museum institutions, integrating skills acquired in the streets into the strict academic space. According to Alex Partola, the very best 25 street artists from all over Russia took part in this project. Nikita K. Skryabin, a well-known Moscow artist, became a co-curator. As for Alex, this is his second project about graffiti culture. Before this, Partola produced the book "Ghosts in the machine", which became the first manifesto-book in Russia devoted to Russian train-bombing, a guide to the world on the brink of underground art, vandalism and romanticism of railway. New project "Wall Elements", as well as "Ghosts in the machine", does what no one has ever done before for Russian graffiti - it fixes the meanings that street art of our age creates.
