Curated Graffiti

One of my favorite things about living in São Paulo is not just being surrounded by street art, but being able to recognize different artists. They may not have famous names, but so many have instantly recognizable styles.

Recently some of these artists had their work displayed indoors for a change at the 3rd Bienal Internacional Graffiti Fine Art, which featured both Brazilian and international artists. In the past, I’ve tried to make sure people stayed out of my shots, but this time I felt like the viewers were sort of necessary to accurately depict the experience. (Philosophical question: If a piece of art is displayed but no one sees it, is it still art?)
