Description

Brazil's major cities are currently playing host to one of the world's most vital graffiti movements. In terms of both content and aesthetic quality, the colorful and dynamic idiom of Brazilian artists differs considerably from that of their American and European counterparts; the country's political climate, so frequently subject to upheaval, further distinguishes its graffiti from other international styles. In 2013, 11 artists and artist collectives from Sao Paulo and other Brazilian cities were invited to exhibit their art throughout the city of Frankfurt. Ranging from the figurative to the abstract, the light-hearted to the socially critical, and from oversized murals to more modest, ephemeral works, the contributions are documented in this volume. The 11 artists are Herbert Baglione, Gais, Rimon Guimaraes, Jana Joana & Viche, Nunca, Onesto, Alexandre Orion, Speto, Fefe Talavera, Tinho and Zezao. Each copy features unique graffiti on the cover.show more

In recognition of the country's dynamic street art scene, Brazil was presented as the guest of honor at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2013 for the second time. Eleven graffiti artists and artist groups were invited to exhibit works in urban areas throughout Frankfurt. The various works are presented in this photorich publication.--Lauren Bedosky "Public Art Review "show more
