Buenos Aires Street Art Book

Some days ago, I received an interesting book about street art in South America or more precisely Buenos Aires! Matt Fox-Tucker and Guilherme Zauith present in “Textura Dos – Buenos Aires Street Art” their impressions from the streets of the Argentinian capital and its neighborhoods on about 140 colorful pages. After “Graffiti Argentina” this is just the second book I know which documents the colorful urban artworks in Argentina.

Buenos Aires is a beautiful city with a vibrant street art scene attracting some of the world’s best graffiti artists. Matt Fox-Tucker has spent more than six months exploring the city’s 48 neighbourhoods documenting and photographing the incredible murals, stencils and graffiti textures that decorate the surfaces of its offices, shops, factories and homes, and touch the lives of the people around them.

“Textura Dos” is split into chapters relating to each district where the artworks are located and includes short descriptions of each area, but although the authors say that they “also consulted several local and foreign street artists while writing the book”, no artists are mentioned…

The book is available on Amazon. Here are some insight-the-book shots I took recently:
