Summary
Kings Way is a comprehensive account of the first decade of the graffiti writing subculture in Melbourne, Australia. Beginning in 1983, as the New York break dancing craze was sweeping the globe, Kings Way tells the story of the development of a hardcore underground scene of local "writers" and their commitment to "getting up". Using the city's walls and trains as their canvases, these writers pioneered the elaborate spray-paint murals that now dominate Melbourne's cityscape.
