5.0 out of 5 stars Another top book from Mr Manco 24 Nov 2005
Format:Paperback
This book explores the vibrant graffiti "scene" in Brazil.
As with the other books by Tristan Manco (Stencil Graffiti & Street Logos) it is packed from cover to cover with colour shots of all types of graffiti art - broken down into different types of graffiti as well as having pages dedicated to individual artists.
In addition there's also plenty of historical perspective and comments from artists involved to read too.
Being a fan of graffiti and also of Brazilian culture in general (mainly through it's musical output and football teams from the 70's) this has opened my eyes to their street culture today - a distillation of hundreds of years of absorbing people and modifying their cultures, art & music to make something uniquely Brazilian.
A great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vivid Photography and Smart Commentary 25 Dec 2005
By J. McClure - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Great book that shows a cross section of the Street Art scene in some of Brazil's cities. The author interviews some of the artists, and is able to talk to the history and techniques used, so it is more then just pretty pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Graffiti Brasil 30 Dec 2007
By Rebecca Heeley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brazil has to showcase some of the best Graf talent the world has to offer, The 'Os-Gemeos Brothers' have to be one of my faves, and this book showcases loads of the awesome imagery this beautiful city is home to. This kind of "extreme' art (!?) has given the world a new appreciation for this type of medium & such distinct styles, It has refreshed the minds of all, and brought color to an otherwise, sometimes, dreary place, due to poverty etc, it's so great to see such ambitious artists expressing themselves to such an extent, and to see difficult political issues get represented, it's a good way for people to get a message across, also brings color & inspires people in this country.

1.0 out of 5 stars Let brasilians tell their own story 24 Jun 2008
By Ozon Revac - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the normal story behind people who dont know graffiti in brasil writing a book about it! In this book you can see some of the most famous artists from são paulo and almost nothing on other states. Very nice pictures, but that is not credit to the author who didn't take them!! Good book for OsGemeos lovers though!!
