I would certainly recommend this book. There are plenty of books out on street art at the moment, but this one is a bit different. Obviously Chilean street art is quite an obscure subject, but the author has written a very lucid introduction explaining the history of mural art in the country since the 1940s. The book is divided into two sections, one on locations (from the far North to the deep South of the country) and one on artists. There are also translations of the Spanish texts and Chilean slang. Good addition to growing subject.

Chile has a long history of artistic self-expression and this book bears witness to that. The post-Pinochet generation has a new agenda and the graffiti artists highlighted here reveal a rich mix of cultural vibrancy. The author gives good background details to the 'movimiento' and shows many examples from around the country with individual artists credited. It's a fsscinating story and one to take lessons from.
