An authoritative guide to the most significant artists, schools, and styles of street art and graffiti around the world Painted murals first appeared in Latin America in the early 20th century; in the 1950s, spray-can graffiti associated with Latino gangs followed, notably the "cholo" graffiti of Los Angeles. Today, street art has traveled to nearly every corner of the globe, evolving into a highly complex and ornate art form. The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti is the definitive survey of international street art, focusing on the world's most influential urban artists and artworks. Since the lives and works of urban artists are inextricably linked to specific streets and places, this beautifully illustrated volume features specially commissioned "city artworks" that provide an intimate understanding of these metropolitan landscapes.    Organized geographically by country and city, more than 100 of today's most important street artists--including Espo in New York, Shepard Fairey in Los Angeles, Os Gêmeos in Brazil, and Anthony Lister in Australia--are profiled alongside key examples of their work. The evolution of street art and graffiti within each region is also chronicled, providing essential historical context. With contributions by the foremost authorities on street art and graffiti, this landmark publication provides a nuanced understanding of a widespread contemporary art practice. The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti emphasizes urban art's powerful commitment to a spontaneous creativity that is inherently connected to the architecture of the metropolis.… (mais)

Say what you will about street art, it isn’t going anywhere. It can be galling or beautiful. It can inspire passers-by or simply blend into the scenery. The original print for the Obama Hope campaign was spawned from a piece of street art. Rafael’s World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti is a massive undertaking—an attempt to collect evidence of and write intelligently about a style of art that is meant to fade away or be seen as vandalistic or even puerile. With very few exceptions, there are no photographs of the artists in this book. Instead, the art speaks for itself alongside modest short essays detailing some small details of the artist’s life and a quick explanation of their motivations and styles.

Schachter gives street art a potency and a voice. This volume goes beyond your standard Banksy stuff and tries to catalogue a wide variety of artists, styles, locations, and media. Europe and North American artists get the bulk of the space, but there is still quite a bit of representation from other parts of the world of street art. The hope is that the reader will look around their environments more carefully and find what is meant for public consumption. Most serious street art has a message, but many times we cannot ask the artist directly for fear of exposing them to the authorities. Some of my personal favorites include the geometrics wall designs of Eltono and the absolutely stunning animal murals by Dal East. There is an entire world of street art: it is up to us to open our eyes and seek it out. A stunning and picturesque book. ( )

Graffiti has been with us at least since ancient Egypt. However, its modern version, independent public art, emerged in the 1960s on the east coast of the United States. Since then, it has spread throughout the globe and has become the most common form of art there is. It ranges from graffiti tagging to murals. It has been done with chalk, spray paint, and even lasers and it has as many styles as artists and some, like Baksy, are as well-known as commercial artists. Some have, in fact, become commercial artists.

This book, however, deals with those who continue to make public places their canvases. Through pictures and fascinating bios, it tells the stories of street artists from countries as far apart as Brazil and Russia as well as both American coasts. The artists and their styles are just as diverse as their countries. Some are humorous, political, beautiful, profound; some are simple tags on mailboxes and walls; some are beautiful murals which fill the sides of buildings; and some are light shows which cover famous landmarks like the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Whatever and wherever, they are all more or less subversive and they are all fascinating. This book takes you around the world in street art and what an amazing and beautiful journey it is! ( )
