San Francisco Bay Area graffiti superhero Cuba uses a full spectrum of hand-painted wild style lettering to illuminate a poem by Marshall Weber. Cuba, recognizing that every city needs a healthy greenbelt around it to survive, imagines a military-like siege of nature which reduces our cities to ruins.

The accordion fold book opens up to over 20 feet long – a wall of graphic intensity. Well known for his style and personal integrity, Cuba also has incredible stamina and commitment. Though he has advanced kidney failure and undergoes dialysis three days a week (and has for over a decade) he is still in the streets painting almost every day and night and has been known to tape markers to his hand so he can tag when unable to do larger murals.
