Rodrigo Branco | Brasil

São Paulo’s own Brazilian artist, Rodrigo Branco, represents all the complexities of this megalopolis on his strokes. With a surprising and complex biography, throughout his almost thirty years of age, he managed to combine unusual sights of his world with kindness and heart. His will to become a better artist, being from studying in social art projects when growing up or with his peers and years of dedication laid down the path for him to become a talented and professional artist that he is today.

Born in southern outskirts of São Paulo with north-eastern Brazil’s descent, he was first influenced by his family members to pursue a career in art. Later, during his teens, he discovered the graffiti universe on the streets of his neighborhood and photography with his father. These determined the way he approaches the many facets of his art.

Branco paints faces and elements that inhabit his imaginary, childhood and the life that flows from people and the streets of the world.

He’s been part of many expositions in Brazil and other countries like Germany, US and England and also art festivals like ArtRua in Rio de Janeiro, II Muralist Bienal in Cali (Colombia) and others. -Luna Vargas

Stinkfish | Colombia

Born in Mexico, but raised in Colombia, Stinkfish has been honing his skills on the streets of his hometown of Bogota since an early age. He first experimented with stencils in 2003 and has since perfected his own, unique style. His murals, bursting with color, always have a stenciled portrait at their center. These portraits are taken from photos that the artist shoots during his travels around the world. They are faces that catch his eye, but not people he approaches and talks to. Another source is found photographs either discovered lying on the streets or bought at flea markets. He fashions large-scale stencils based on these photographs, which in the street are then amended by impromptu, colorful halos.

Stinkfish is one of the founders of the crew Animal Power Culture (APC), which now boasts over 50 members. His collaborations with many different artists, as well as his solo pieces, can be found on the streets of Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, England, Spain, Holland, Austria, France, Argentina , Colombia, India, China and Nepal, among others countries.

Giuliano martinuzzo | brasil

 

Giuliano Martinuzzo’s art invites its appreciator to a universe of compositions exploring the complexity of the human mind. He engraves the meeting of abstract and organic through a mysterious and subliminal tracing. His works are light, fluid and expressed in curves, reflecting the most primal organic shapes, the line, Giuliano calls to the unconscious, to the origins of life and thought. Born in São Caetano do Sul, in the Brazilian state of São Paulo, Giuliano has, since his infancy, been submerged in compositions belonging to a parallel reality, a reflex of his timeless and introverted worldview that, through the years, translated into an explosion of indecipherable shapes representing Nature, a topic that he has always been intrigued by.

The Weird Crew | Austria & Germany

 

The Weird is a crew of artists spread all over Germany and Austria, founded in 2011. The ten members come from a graffiti background and focus on high quality character design in unique recognizable styles. They work as artists, graphic designers, illustrators and lecturers. Each one a serious heavyweight styler, they prefer a maverick illustrative way of designing, no matter if the (art)work is private or a commissioned.

Some work in their own/self founded design bureaus, some on their own as freelancers. Each has been engaged (regularly and in projects) by international companies, public institutes and all sorts of other interesting customers. Besides that, every member appeared on jams, live-paintings, national and international art fairs and exhibitions during their many years’ careers as graffiti painters (although this label might not really fit). Two members are also professional DJs and music producers (Cone and Vidam).
