Cidade Cinza now available on itunes

Cidade Cinza, (Grey City) is a much acclaimed film about the Brazilian street art scene which came out last year and was available on itunes for free but only in Brazil. The city in question is Sao Paulo where many of the artists on this site are based which is without doubt the graffiti capital of Brazil. The film has a fantastic sound track too so well worth tracking down now on itunes...

Choque Cultural in Morecambe, UK

Thanks to a Brazilian art enthusiast Kevin Goodhall a selection of Choque Cultural's prints have gone on display in Morecambe Bay in Lancashire. Set in a dry bar / art space the prints have been enjoyed by the locals for a few months now. A highlight of the exhibition was when the place was filled to capacity one night for a performance with 12 ukelele's!

Santhiago Selon new prints

Santhiago Selon new prints

We're pleased to announce the addition of Selon to the site with a number of his limited edition prints. Santhiago Selon is a young artist based in Goiania, Brazil. His work was recently featured on the cover of the new book "Nuevo Mundo" which documents the rising stars emerging from the Latin American graffiti scene. Santhiago primarily paints in urban situations since his main theme is the city - its movement, colour and architecture. "Interventions" he says "are special too, as each place has its own characteristics." He is also becoming recognised for his studio output on canvas and more recently his self-produced silk screen prints.
