Street Art Santiago – Chile 2015-09-26

Street Art Santiago – Chile

Santiago, with its deeply evolved and extremely active underground graffiti scene, bursts at the seams with an abundance of eye-popping, jaw-dropping murals. Stencil graffiti artist Lord K2 documents 14 neighborhoods within the capital of Chile with his arresting photography and intimate conversations with local artists. Through more than 200 images and 80 interviews, learn how street art was influenced by American, European, and Brazilian graffiti and how its evolution runs parallel to the political history of the nation itself.

 

During the Cold War, nationalist muralist brigades spread socialist idealism through symbols of power and oppression. Santiago’s repressed lower classes gradually usurped the art form, and murals eventually became a weapon of resistance. This vibrant city, with its array of distinct cultural districts, now invites you to experience its fascinating and tightly knit artistic community that has flourished since the fall of Pinochet’s dictatorship in 1990.

    11 hours ago by i_support_street_art NEVERCREW just made a new project, in Phoenix, USA. The work is called “El oso plateado and the machine” and it's composed by three different mural paintings, realized on the same building in downtown Phoenix. It's an historical construction, built in 1920. Over the years the building hosted a radio station and two newspapers and it appears in the initial sequence of Psycho, by Hitchcock. You’ll find out more about the particular title of this project on the "info sheet" on the dropbox link, with all the pictures. The series of walls was curated by Anne­Laure Lemaitre (FatCap).  #picoftheday   #isupportstreetart …
