Content

San Franciscos legendary Mission District boasts a greater concentration of street art than any other neighborhood in the world. Beginning in the early 1970s as a form of social and political activism, a vibrant public mural movement has flourished in this dynamic, multicultural community. The result is a spectacular, ever-changing urban landscape transformed by the artistic convergence of traditional Mexican mural painting, folk art, Surrealism, Pop art, underground comics, advertising, and graffiti.With 900 stunning photographs, thiscomprehensive book showcases more than three decades of work by a diverse array of artists, from the conspicuously anonymous to the internationally famous. Gronk, Rigo, Las Mujeres Muralistas, Barry McGee (Twist), R. Crumb, Spain Rodriguez, Michael Rio, Chuy Campusano, Susan Cervantes, and Neckface are among the many who have made the streets of the Mission their public gallery. Both reverent and subversivelike the art itselfessays and commentaries by writers and artists involved with the movement document the artistic, social, and political forces that have shaped Mission Muralismo.
