Brazilian Street Art In London



If you happen to be in London, stop by Pure Evil gallery to check out the current Culture Shock exhibit in partnership with São Paulo's street art gallery Choque Cultural. Culture Shock features the works of Titi Freak, Zezão, MZK, Daniel Melim, Carlos Dias, Nove, Presto, Speto and Pjota, and runs until this coming Saturday, October 30th.

Art For The Weekend: Carlos Dias At Choque Cultural



If you happen to be in São Paulo this weekend, make sure to stop by gallery Choque Cultural in Pinheiros tomorrow for the opening of ALEM, the new solo exhibit by street artist Carlos Dias. The exhibition will occupy the entire gallery and run until November 20.

Art For The Weekend


If you are not busy taking scuba diving lessons like me this weekend, I highly recommend paying a visit to MuBE in São Paulo to view the first Graffiti Fine Art International Biennial. The exhibition on display until October 3 features the works of over 60 graffiti artists from 12 different countries, including some of my favorite Brazilian artists Nove, Nunca, Os Gêmeos, Flip, Titi Freak, and Zezão. I haven't been to the exhibit yet, but it is already on my list of things to do this month.

If street art is not your thing, stop by Galeria Mezanino tomorrow afternoon for the opening of the new collective show Das Naturezas, featuring paintings, sketches, and photographs by artists Andréa Berriel, Ulysses Bôscolo, Ronaldo Camelo, Biel Carpenter, Daniel Malva, and Junior Suci.

Havaianas Got A Graffiti Makeover


Havaianas invited graffiti artists Chivitz, Finók, and Minhau to create exclusive prints for spring/ summer 2010-2011. I am definitely getting the ones in purple by Chivitz. View more pictures of the styles at Typograff.

SneakersBR And Nike Team Up To Create Five Very Brazilian Sneakers



For their second collaboration, SneakersBR, the online source for sneaker news in the country, and Nike Sportswear, have developed five Dunk Low sneakers, each representing a different region of Brazil, and have invited graffiti artist Vinícius Popó not only to customize the insole of the sneakers, but to also go on a road trip to spread the sneaker culture in different parts of the country and record it on video. The result of the trip will be the Spreading Sneaker Culture Throughout Brazil project, a series of web videos in which personalities from nine capitals of the five regions of the country will introduce their cities, starting September 8 at SneakersBR.

As for the sneakers, the collection has a special limited edition of 12 pairs for each region’s version that will unfortunately be distributed exclusively among the personalities recorded for the project’s videos, and not sold at stores.

In case you are wondering, the first collaboration between SneakersBR and Nike resulted in the Nike Air Max 1 Lanceiro last year.

Definitely Need To Check Out Titi Freak's New Exhibition



Titi Freak's solo show at Choque Cultural in São Paulo opened last weekend, and it is already on my list of things to do as soon as am back in the city early next week. The show runs until October 2, and looks really amazing.

Also on my list of things to do: the new exhibit by photographer Vavá Ribeiro at Galeria Mezanino, which opens tomorrow. Do not miss it.
