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 countrys 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.
