Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Astonishingly vibrant and absolutely unique, this collection of Mexican artwork is sure to be an essential inspiration and reference for anyone into Chicano art, lowbrow, rock 'n' roll, or cabaret. The Mexican influence in the lowbrow art scene is enormous and growing all the time, and contemporary Latino graphic artists are now having a big impact on Californian subcultures. This groundbreaking work features amazing images by the top 30 Mexican and Californian artists on the scene and is authored by a respected authority on the genre, Jorge Alderete. Biographies of every artist, detailed captions to each work, and an extensive contact section enrich these adrenaline-soaked pages of visceral, eye-popping images. The amazing vitality, color, and vibe of this inimitable work are sure to be loved by anyone with an affinity for cultural art.
