INFART. Bassano del Grappa. ITALY

For the 3rd edition of INFART Festival, I’ve been to the beautyful city of Bassano del Grappa in order to create a mural.

L’ART COMME MIROIR DE L’AME. 6x15m. Bassano del Grapa. ITALY. 2011

After a wide period of being able to spread colors to the people, i felt like going back to a more black and white style, with just 2 colors fighting each other. Considering the format of the wall, i made a few sketches to find the right composition. And a kneeling man, holding his head in his hands, came to life on the mural.

In Sao Paulo’s Museum of Art, beside the mural I painted, I have chosen to present a sculpture.

GAMBIA. Kubune. THE BIRD.

The latest wall i did in Gambia, which is my favorite appeared to be a bird. A kind of phoenix that just flyed out of my fingers naturaly. I also started by talking and eating with the people, and then just took a time to sit down and stare at the empty wall, in order to see what could live in it.

I really enjoyed the aspect of the wall, and the contrast that pure colors straight on the wall will create over the texture.

GAMBIA. Macumbaya. SHAKE HANDS

One of my favorite village was Macumbaya. A village that claim his standing for peace and unity for the whole nation. I read this words written by the brother’s chief on a wall you can see in the village main square.

I’ve been asked by the chief to paint a special wall. The one that any visitor will see while meeting the chief of the village. The guest house.

The vibe so easy to get, that it tooks me just a few minutes to draw on the sand and find the perfect visual to express what i lived their. Which is a feeling of Unity and peace beyond races, culture or social standings.

GAMBIA. Bafaloto. THE SCHOOL, THE COW & THE MAN.

While in Gambia, during Wide open walls project, I’ve been visiting and painting many villages.

In one of them, Bafaloto, I’ve been creating two paintings. One of them was just a writing saying “Gambia”, with a huge baobab as a background behind thewall.
