São Paulo photographer and artist Flávio Samelo

Since 1992, Flavio Samelo has walked through the streets of São Paulo photographing skateboarders, which allowed him to introduce to his own artwork graffiti, pixação, and other urban elements. Today, the works of Samelo have two fronts: the photographic output, an image with a circulation of one print, creating an indisputable original, and his works that mix his concrete studies with the urban images. Using photography as a base for the paintings allows Samelo to push the limits of his images through the use of shape, line, and color, and to communicate a new graphic reality.
