STREET ART BRAZIL — Tinho | Pato | Flip
In a bold new move the Embassy of Brazil is giving three of Brazil’s most popular street artists an exciting platform in the UK, with Street Art Brazil, a one-off exhibition at Gallery 32.
Having long boasted a particularly rich and diverse urban art scene, Brazil’s uniquely colourful and exciting approach to this branch of painting has, in a short time, propelled it to the very forefront of the global graffiti movement. The exhibition has come about due to a shared commitment by the Embassy of Brazil and ocontemporary to bring the thriving spirit of Brazilian street art to a wider audience in the UK.
Celebrated São Paulo street artists Tinho, Pato and Flip will be making a special visit to the UK for what will be their first ever exhibition in London. Their canvas will be the white walls of Gallery 32, on which they are being given free rein to create the kind of extraordinary murals for which they have become famous in Brazil. A selection of their artworks will then be hung on the graffitied walls.
According to Olivia Connelly, Director of ocontemporary, 'Urban Art is by far the most significant global movement since Pop Art, and Brazil is now considered by many to be the most important root of this movement. It shows great understanding on the part of the Embassy of Brazil that, as a government body, they are willing to open themselves to this exciting new style of art and demonstrate some of the fantastic living artists they have in their country.'
