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.

Authors & Artists:
The collective Style Needs No Color / SNNC is a brain child of Christian Schupp, Jörg Lindemann, and Thorsten Schuh. SNNC is based on the idea that disclaiming color carves out the essentials: Style! This philosophy is adopted by all artists working in the collective and can be seen through all their black and white works. With a wide network of international artists, SNNC in recent years did numerous projects; exhibitions, live painting events and murals.
