Item description for Hasta La Victoria, Stencil! (Coleccion Registro Grafico) by Guido Indij...
"The need to break on through and create interference in this world we're living in calls for action. It feels good to be here, now and for ever . . . Let's get out on the streets! To stencil, forever!" As if in response to these words by artist, DOMA, here is a veritable wealth of vibrant stencil art on Argentina's streets. The images are presented without text: the works are intricate, simple, beautiful, colorful, informative, and funny. Hasta La Victoria, Stencil! is an exploration of all things stencil--from stencil art's first appearance in Argentina in 10,000 B.C., to the ways in which stencils are used today: as a reaction to a socio-political situation, as an artform, as poetic terrorism, and as a history lesson (after all, the book's title is adapted from Che Guevara's immortal words, "Hasta La Victoria, Siempre!"). It also provides detailed stencil instructions for readers ( . . .Stick everything in a bag, wait till it gets dark and find a wall . . . ). Quite appropriately, this highly topical book's cover features a die-cut title . . . Until Victory, Stencil! Edited by Guido Indij. Paperback, 6 x 6 in./340 pgs / 720 color.
