Schwarz auf Weiss II – Style Needs No Color


SNNC is back with “Schwarz auf Weiss II – Style Needs No Color” the larger format, follow-up release to its successful predecessor.

Since the first release, the Style Needs No Color collaboration has grown significantly, manifesting itself in a series of succesful exhebitions, live-painting shows, installations and streetwear collaborations.


Style Needs No Color works on the notion that excessive colors and flashy techniques should not be used to repair a weak foundation. It upholds the philosophy that artwork should be able to stand alone without unnecessary distractions, and therefore SNNC artists restrict their palette to black and white. In Schwarz auf Weiss Vol. II, the follow-up release to their successful first book, you can see the stark beauty and striking simplicity of this idea in action. Since their first title, the SNNC collaboration has expanded significantly, manifesting itself in a series of noteworthy exhibitions, live painting shows, installations and street wear collaborations across the world. SNNC has invited a diverse range of international artists from their growing network to contribute black and white illustrations, vector graphics, street art and graffiti styles to this impressive publication.
