Street art, Lost in London
If you are a long life follower of Jungle you know how much we love Brazilian graffiti art (for those of you who don’t just check the e-version of the special issue we did a couple of years ago by clicking here) and how much we are excited by Crânio coming to London.
Born as Fabio Oliveira in 1982, in the concrete jungle of São Paulo, Crânio has been painting the streets since 1998, trying to bring art to the whole population, with a contemporary language and social critique.
Crânio’s art provides a thought-provoking look at the political relationship between indigenous communities in Brazil and deforestation. “I want to show things that are happening with the indigenous people living in Brazil. Some of them are trying to adapt; others have adapted really well to capitalism; others are trying to sell the Brazilian rainforest to grab some money and a cool iPhone.”, say him.
For his debut London show, his characters invade the British capital much the same way as him, venturing around town for the first time, like wild visitors, ready to paint the town black and provoke the status quo. Unmissable!
