London: Brazilian invasion

Naturally Unstable

Brazilian artists are currently bringing lots of colours to the streets of London. After his solo show at Montana Barcelona ( covered here) Cranio has been hitting the streets with his witty characters. In parallel, two São Paulo street artists, Mateus Bailon and Rafael Sliks are currently showing  new paintings and limited editions in a joint exhibition titled ‘Naturally Unstable’ hosted by Dope Gallery.

Bailon colourful paintings are inspired by myths, tropical birds and nature reminiscent of Amazonian Rainforest, while Sliks pixação style is very energic and abstract.

At the opening guests could also enjoy a live painting session with the two artists joined with Cranio.

Barcelona: Cranio – “Amore$’ @ Montana Gallery

Cranio - Amore$

Brazilian artist Cranio returns to Spain for a second solo show at Montana Gallery Barcelona. “AMORE$” presents a series of colourful works on paper and canvases.

Cranio’s signature blue characters are depicted in everyday life situations, from passionate love, broken hearted to dancing and smoking, as well as escaping the police.

Larger canvas works also highlight issues like consumerism, globalization and corruption, environment, the lack of water and the exploitation of the Amazonian forest.
