Decades of struggle for national identity and stability in Chile are the raw materials from which Inti Castro, better known as INTI, creates works massive in both scale and cultural relevance. Born in Chile and now an international sensation, he is a classically trained artist who has been painting in the streets since age thirteen.
Inti: Color, Carnaval y Resistencia, his first artist monograph showcases larger-than-life paintings that pull iconography from politics, the circus and religion; street art characterized by a clean, fine art style that doesn't compromise the sharp edge of the artist's social commentary and cultural exploration. This global selection surveys INTI's work in Paris, Miami, Oslo, Montral, Istanbul and many other cities across more than twenty countries. Glimpses into the artist's process give readers a sense of the size and intricacy of this seminal work by one of Latin America's most important street artists.
