Digitalorganico in Sao Paulo, Brazil
Great story about long-time Brazilian street artist Bel Borba and his month-long public art residency in NYC, where he’s finding lots of raw material for inspiration.
Now I’m interested in the documentary about Borba that’s scheduled to open next month. Should be very interesting when it spreads to the rest of the country from New York later this year.
Love this art project sponsored by a Brazilian phone company in Sao Paulo, matching 100 artists with 100 groovily shaped booths. It’d be cool to have something like it in Los Angeles, except we don’t, ahem, seem to have phone booths anymore. Flavorpill has a slide show of ten of the best resulting projects.
Nice introductory piece about the particular, even peculiar variant of street art that has emerged in troubled and vast Sao Paulo, Brazil. Very interesting stuff, though I suspect there will be significant pushback in the violent pichacao subculture over attempts by the broader art scene to co-opt or at least engage practitioners. These guys are still valuing their political anger and outsider status too much to come in from the storm.
