Item description for Mexico: Stencil by Editorial RM...

When the Mexican government attempted to violently quell the teacher's union's demonstrations in Oaxaca in June of 2006, artists were quick to protest. Graffiti covered government buildings, and both street and fine artists quickly formed an organization called the Assembly of the Artists of the Revolution of Oaxaca, or ASARO. Some participants created stencils and posters that are still sold in Oaxaca's main square; they re-appear on the walls of the city whenever a march is imminent.
In the streets of modern Mexico, the stenciled image has become a ubiquitous sight, and is now a thriving form of popular art, used for non-political purposes as well as for protest. Mexico: Stencil is the first international publication on this subject. The product of 10 years of research conducted throughout the country, its content benefits from commentary by the artists themselves, who contribute background information and documentation for this project. Consistent with the spirit of its subject, however, this volume respects the anonymity of the many creators who figure in it, offering instead a vision of the streets as they might be observed by any visually aware pedestrian in contemporary Mexico.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mexico: Stencil?

An Awesome Book  Apr 9, 2008
This book is full of pictures of actual Street stencils. While it doesn't give you any information of the pieces, it has plenty to offer. The quality of the photographs is great. It's a good book for any art collector.

I wish there was some background information on these pieces or this art movement. I learned more about it on this site than I did from the book.
hot mess  Mar 26, 2008
What I appreciate most about street art is how a piece interacts with its environment... this book doesn't show any of that.

"Mexico: Stencil" doesn't seem well organized, its got an overwhelming amount of pieces, it looks like someone collected a bunch of pictures, cropped the stencil out and tried to fit as many close ups on one page.

If you're looking to learn technique, then this book is great. But if you want this book because you think of street art as social commentary, than this leaves you wanting more.
