Of the 300 images included in this book, some have never been published whilst others grant an exclusive behind-the-scenes insight into DAIM’s intricate production process.
The artist is one of the “few innovators” in the “versatility of linguistic expression” –Volltext. “More than a name, DAIM is a tool for experimenting with and exploring form, identity, and shapes.” –Font Magazine.“His artwork has mesmerized and conquered both the graffiti world and the mainstream.” -Refused Magazine.

In 1991, right after his graduation from secondary school, he began to work as a freelance artist and called himself DAIM. In 1996 he began his studies of Fine Arts at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Art (Switzerland). Today he lives and works in Hamburg (Germany). During his artistic career, Mirko Reisser has travelled to many parts of the world and taken part in a multitude of museum and gallery exhibitions. He has also aided and initiated many internationally recognized art projects, curated and organised exhibitions and published books, often together with the studio collaboration ‘getting-up’ that was founded in 1999 with Gerrit Peters and Heiko Zahlmann.
