Can you recommend to me books about the lives of graffiti artists? For research purposes I'm aiming towards the era of of modern day southwestern United States and preferably nonfiction and autobiographical, but those constraints are totally optional.

My mother used Getting Up a lot in writing her PsyD thesis (because she wrote it on graffiti artists). I used to read it a lot just because I liked it and thought the stories of the various artists were really interesting.

I wonder if Bomb the Suburbs would be up your alley.
