"Ruas de São Paulo"
by sabine7 / February 19, 2007
A huge exhibition covering eight prominent Brazilian street artists just opened at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York and runs through March 17th. Ruas de São Paulo features video footage of site-specific works in Brazil and artist interviews, in addition to a number of paintings and mixed-media pieces that represent this non-traditional genre that is such a reflection of Brazil’s contemporary urban reality. These artists, and others like them, are beautifying an ever-changing São Paulo where poverty-driven vandalism is evolving into a more acceptable aesthetic.
