Graffiti calligraphy by Niels Shoe Meulman. He is born, raised and based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Meulman began tagging ‘Shoe’ in 1979. In the eighties he met New York artists like Dondi, Rammellzee, Haze, Quik and Keith Haring. He then formed the Crime Time Kings with Bando from Paris and Mode2 from London. In the Nineties he furthered his technique by apprenticing under the Dutch graphic design master Anthon Beeke. In the years after, he ran Caulfield & Tensing and was partner in advertising agency Unruly. Since then, his Calligraffiti pieces have been shown in various international exhibitions and are part of several museum collections.
