About the book

The first book by JB Rock and Diamond bears two distinctive covers celebrating each artist whilst creating a single space where the friends and collaborators can bring their unique iconography together.  The two artists masterfully juxtapose their works with the architecture that defines Rome in a beautiful fusion between old and new, eternal and ephemeral.
Whilst both artists choose to focus their fascination on voluptuous images of women, the two differ in their execution. JB Rock’s subjects often display raw, primal instincts through vibrant displays of luminous colour, whilst Diamond’s art is more classical, refined and intricate. Whilst their...
The first book by JB Rock and Diamond bears two distinctive covers celebrating each artist whilst creating a single space where the friends and collaborators can bring their unique iconography together.  The two artists masterfully juxtapose their works with the architecture that defines Rome in a beautiful fusion between old and new, eternal and ephemeral.
Whilst both artists choose to focus their fascination on voluptuous images of women, the two differ in their execution. JB Rock’s subjects often display raw, primal instincts through vibrant displays of luminous colour, whilst Diamond’s art is more classical, refined and intricate. Whilst their styles may differ, both names are equally synonymous with the streets of Rome. Their impact is as hard as rock and as sharp as diamond.
“They have infiltrated the streets of the Eternal City and covered her walls with their Burlesque Punk scenes, images filled with sensual young girls whose flesh has been covered in the words and symbols of cryptic tattoos.” -Marta Gargiulo.

The city is his playground. His style, inspired by Art Nouveau and Classical icons, has constant references to the Ancient Roman World, seen also in his use of Latin words. He started working in the early nineties as a writer. He concentrated on lettering and tags before arriving to use of the human figure. Fantasy and reality mix together to produce ephemeral female forms that have been inspired by both classical drawing and underground culture influences. His work is a true reflection of his street art attitude, which can be seen in his style and dedication to his work and designs. DIAMOND was born in Rome. During his childhood shows a natural flair to the design. He debuted as writer on the Roman scene in the early 90s and after art school he completed his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and obtained the title of “master craftsman”. His experience in the world of graffiti evolves: Dimond came to the street art, becoming one of the leaders of the ethernal city . The work of Diamond do not follows the clichè of the classic street-art. The techniques he uses are unusual and different, the themes are often dark implications symbolic / visionaries and the result of its artistic production is certainly stylistically eclectic and restless, quantitatively overflowing.
