A decent selection of photos covering different aspects of street art and graffiti in Valencia. Including interviews with a few artists, and text in English and Spanish. After a recent trip I'd say Valencia graffiti is as good as anywhere, and there's a lot of it! (perhaps even more than Barcelona, which I'd always previously considered my favourite city for graffiti). So this book will give you a decent flavour of it.

A Sophisticated Survey of the Graffiti of Valencia, Spain 30 May 2010
By Grady Harp - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Luz Martin has created what everyone hopes will be said of writer/photographers who document aspects of cities that are significant culturally. In this very beautifully designed and produced volume Martin not only writes well about the differences between the street art of London and the street art of Valencia, Spain, she also wisely has gathered artist statements from the primary practitioners of street art and delivers those to us, well illustrated, with the text in both Spanish and English.

And after this introduction of the artists and an introduction that explains how the light and color of the streets in Valencia are incorporated into the final significance of the street art, she wastes no time in getting to what the book is all about. Her photography is excellent, managing to not only give us the big picture of entire walls of buildings with the decor imposed on them, but she also takes the time to give details of the most interesting of the artworks. Her details respectfully select out alterations in the texture of the walls - tiles, stucco surfaces, fences, doorways, painted over fixtures - in the last section of the book, a section more about those textural differences than about the art. And in closing her book on Valencia Street Art she makes her point that it is not only the work of the artists she honors, but the inherent beauty of the streets of Valencia that invite us to experience this Spanish work of art as a whole! This book is not only a fine art book and a pinnacle of book design, it is also an invitation to appreciate a locale that celebrates art in its own special way. Grady Harp, May 10

Full-page color presentations and notes make this a fine survey 19 Oct. 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Any college-level art library strong in street graphics, urban art and graphic design needs TEXTURA, a survey of Valencia, Spain's street art. It comes from a photographer and Valencia native who here documents street art displays, offering a blend of finished mural pieces and graffiti art alike. Full-page color presentations and notes make this a fine survey.
