Another day and another lovely scribbling from our fav Sao Paulo street artist…
Ok, so I kind of know this is lazy journalism but given that we are fundamentally an art based site I’m not gonna beat myself up to much about it - on the contrary I’m actually gonna give myself a hearty back pat for thinking up such a wonderous scheme… So, if I were you I’d be asking what the hell am I blabbering on about. Well the thing is my dear friendlings, I’m currently sat here drizzley el Rio, under a phenomenal work load - like stuff keeps happening (interviews, events, gigs, blah,blah,blah) quicker than I can process it in meaningful way for the magazine - but that’s what I’m working on. The flipside of this means I don’t have much time to research new stuff out there, however, what I have right here is too good to sit on any longer so I’m just gonna keep posting various artist works I have archived until the interviews and articles go live. That way you get to see the goods, the site looks awesome with minimal effort and everyone is a winner! So here’s little more from the lovely Sao Paulo artist Whip whose interview will be up here within the next week which should also satisfy my amaaaazing lady Fe’s (Girl responsible for best blog posts EVER TM) fetish for all things Easy-peasy Japanesey!
Choque Cultural gallery is pulling together a phenomenal amount of graff artists for what they’re calling their “one of our most exciting shows to date!” . That’s quite the statment but when you look at the international line-up you know its a claim to be taken seriously… amongst others there’s CHIVITZ (São Paulo), CLAUDIO GIL (Rio de Janeiro), CRAIG “KR” COSTELLO (New York), FEFE TALAVERA (Madrid), EINE (London), DICE (Osaka), DIMITRY OSKES (Russia), DIONR (Porto Alegre), LUCA BARCELLONA (Milan), IVAN (Hungry), LOOMIT (Germany) & many more…
The event itself finishes on the 27th of June so I’ve somehow got to get back down there before the final curtain falls on this one! Just one more thing however, the show also features the verrry lovely WHIP whose interview I’ll be posting in the next week, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to give y`all a little `Whip-tease`? Nahahahaha. Check out the image below - that’s him! Pretty impressive and you should see the guys yo-yoing skills - I guarentee its gonna be a good ‘un!
Rua Joao Moura, 997,
Ends 27th June
