More details

Buenos Aires is the second largest city in South America. It should come as no surprise that it boasts a sprawling and distinctive street art scene.  This subculture reflects the civic pride of the portenos, the word used to refer to the city's citizens, as well as the influences of global graffiti, street art and visual cultures.

Textura Dos: Buenos Aires Street Art breaks the city down into neighborhoods, or barrios, providing a stunning visual tour of the city. The authors recount their experiences of exploring the featured barrios, meeting the artists and photographing their work. In revealing these visual aspects of Buenos Aires, the authors also share their views of one of the worlds great cities. From the murals of Palermo and San Telmo, to the politically charged work of La Boca, the richness of the city's urban art takes shape between the covers of this book.
