Description - Street Art Santiago by Lord K2
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. AUTHOR: Lord K2 (David Sharabani) is a London born artist who commenced his career investing in the financial markets. This allowed him the time and funds to pursue a career in art. He attended the London College of Printing before studying business. He subsequently honed his art skills in Buenos Aires, learning Stencil Graffiti and then moving on to study photography at the ICP in New York. His photography is predominately focused on documenting urban art and the culture that surrounds it. His stencil-based art works have graced the streets of Argentina and Chile as well as galleries in New York, London, and Tel Aviv. 229 b/w and colour photographs
