Rizzoli to Publish First Monograph on André Saraiva

Rizzoli is set to release the first ever monograph on acclaimed French graffiti artist and nightlife impresario, André Saraiva.

Over the course of his 30-year career, Saraiva has opened bars and clubs around the world, such as Le Baron club in Paris, Tokyo and London, along with spray painting his signature Mr. A character over 200,000 surfaces across the world.

The new book comes in two iterations — a pink and blue cloth-bound cover — and features 320 pages chronicling Saraiva’s backstory, including never-before-seen footage of his hand across photography, graphic design, fashion, and of course, contemporary art and nightlife.

Contributions include text by the late-Virgil Abloh and Jeffrey Deitch, along with French curator Magda Danysz and American writer Glenn O’Brien.

André Saraiva: Graffiti Life will be available to purchase for $85 USD when it releases on September 6.
