Bombshell: The Life and Crimes of Claw Money

Many of you have heard of the already legendary NYC graffiti queen Claw Money. Either you know her from her writing or from her clothing that we have also presented to you several times already. This coming April Bombshell, her first book will be released by powerHouse.

“…her first book, explodes all preconceived notions about the icon many have seen but few have known. From the deepest recesses of her shoeboxes comes this incredible compendium of photographs, designs, personal letters, and other ephemera collected throughout her life. Whether it’s shots of spots she bombed in the Bronx or Grandma Baba’s recipe for latkes, fashion shoots or candid snaps, Bombshell redefines the graffiti monograph, taking you beyond the icon and into the realm of Claw Money.
Claw Money was born in Queens and raised in Long Island. After dropping out of the Fashion Institute of Technology, Claw began bombing with legendary writers and founded graff crew PMS. Claw has worked as a fashion stylist for Korn, Ice-T, Ice Cube, and Guns N’ Roses, and has styled for Nike, adidas, Sector Watches, and Guiness. She launched Claw Money, her signature clothing line, in Spring, 2002. Fashion editor of Swindle magazine, Claw is also co-branding with Ecko Red International, Kid Robot and Hasbro, and BPMW. Featured in the 2005 documentary Infamy, Claw has also been seen in Autograf: New York City’s Graffiti Writers by Peter Sutherland (powerHouse Books, 2004), Supreme Quality and Enamelized by Roger Gastman (Gingko Press, 2005 and 2004, respectively), as well as countless magazines around the world. She lives and works in New York City.”
Now you just have to wait until its April release and check out some pics that you also find in the book after the jump.
