Niels Meulman is an internationally known artist, graphic designer and art director from Amsterdam. Meulman began tagging “Shoe” in 1979 and became a graffiti legend by the time he was 18. In the 80’s Shoe formed the United Street Artists alongside Delta, Joker, Jezis and Jaz, as well as the Crime Time Kings with Bando from Paris and Mode2 from London. Together they gave graffiti in Europe its own distinctive style. In the 90’s he furthered his technique by apprenticing under the Dutch graphic design master Anthon Beeke.

Shoe’s design, typography and Calligraffiti works throughout the years have now been neatly documented in the form of a great book: “Calligraffiti: The graphic art of Niels Shoe Meulman” (From Here To Fame Publishing), with a written preface by John Langdon and introduction by Adam Eeuwens. The book will be presented alongside an extensive exhibition/lecture tour across the globe, hitting up the USA, South America, China and various European cities. Tour dates can be found here, along with further information on the book.
