Nuevo Mundo


One could argue that today s most innovative street artists come from Latin America. The unique visual styles of Os Gemeos, Bastardilla, Vitché, Saner, Jorge Rodriguez Gerada, and others are not only highly respected in the international art scene, b ut their work has also been exhibited at renowned museums including the Tate Modern and Fondation Cartier. Nuevo Mundo is the first book to provide a comprehensive documentation of current street art in Latin America by exploring the full spectrum of regional scenes in their impressive diversity. The book is structured into chapters that introduce work from Argentina, Brazil, Central America, Chile, Columbia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Nuevo Mundo features not only established artists from Latin America, but also promising new talents. In addition to inspiring images, the book s informed texts describe the history and context of the region as a whole and also give insight into each scene. The explosive mi xture of indigenous cultures, local folklore, and the history of European colonization has created a unique visual style. The high regard in which these young street artists are now held around the world is a sign of the new self-confidence of an ent ire continent.

Walls and Frames


Street art has firmly established itself as a facet and attitude in the landscape of contemporary art. Today, young artists are going beyond their work on the streets to present their innovative styles in galleries. They are aspiring to follow in the footsteps of stars of the scene such as Shepard Fairey, Faile, and Os G meos, who have already exhibited their work in renowned museums including the Tate Modern and Fondation Cartier. Walls & Frames documents the work of this next generation of street artists. The book presents the evolution of these ambitious talents, who are keeping their connection to the street alive while establishing themselves in the art market with work in traditional formats such as painting, sculpture, installation, and prints. It shows how artists who work with limited time and a small selection of tools on the street are developing other styles, concepts, and techniques in the studio that are, in turn, influencing the direction of contemporary art. Interviews with the artists and other insiders as well as an insightful text by the curator Maximiliano Ruiz illuminate the context, working methods, and perspectives involved in this inspiring scene. Walls & Frames takes a detailed and authentic look at the intersection of young street art and contemporary art. Its fresh outlook appeals to those familiar with these developments and new to the scene as well as to a wide range of artists, collectors, gallerists, journalists, and designers.
