What happens when you mix religious iconography with Afro-Brazilian folk art, pagan symbols, and street art? Stephan Doitschinoff happens. His colorful acrylic paintings are brilliant: all skulls and symbols and rainbows. And don’t forget to keep an eye out for his street art being produced by his alias, Calma.
Brazilian artist Mozart Guerra is a great, multi-media sculptor, but the pieces he does with rope and expanding foam are particularly striking: he gets a level of detail you wouldn’t expect from such unwieldy materials.
Brazilian artist Cezar Berger, aka Berje, does the metal-influenced pop art really well, his demons, monsters, melting faces, skulls, and goats taking on a sort of counterculture, skateboarder vibe.
Brooklyn-based Tag Brum is a Brazilian artist whose primary method is drawing and collage. His works explore his experiences of growing up in southern Brazil. His latest pieces talk about street kids and the overwhelming voyeurism of social networks, where eyeballs are staring from nothing at nothing, constantly pressuring one to glamorize every mundane breath to an entropic level.
