Nuevo Mundo – a new book on street art in Latin America

While Graffiti Brasil (by Tristan Manco, Lost Art and Caleb Neelon) is probably the benchmark against which other books about graffiti and street art in that country are measured, that book has been out for a while and it’s about time for an update on the scene. Nuevo Mundo: Latin American Street Art by Maximiliano Ruiz (author of Graffiti Argentina) looks like it may be that update, as well as an expansion on the concept since it covers all of Latin America. The book comes out in April or May of this year depending on where you live, but there’s already some preview pages on Gestalten’s website.
