Graffiti Brasil is the book to introduce you to the Brazilian graffiti scene. With in depth stories of the worldwide recognised Gêmeos — that’s Portuguese for twins — as well as lots of other interesting local artists.

Written by Tristan Manco, the author of Stencil Graffiti and Street Logos; Ignacio Aronovich and Louise Chin, who run the amazing Brazilian photography site Lost Art; and Caleb Neelon aka Sonik, a great writer in both senses of the word.

Excerpt from Graffiti Brasil website:

From the startlingly distinctive achievements of the internationally renowned twin-brother painters Os Gêmeos to the visual powers of the ubiquitous daredevil Pichadores, Brazil’s graffiti captivates with entirely fresh ideas, techniques, and messages. [more]
