  • Cranio -  (+)

    Biography : Fabio de Oliveira Parnaiba (1982), also known as Cranio, is a Brazilian artist who began his artistic journey on the streets of Sao Paolo. It was in 1998 Cranio decided that the grey walls in ‘his’ Sao Paolo needed a boost. Since then he has been doing the same for other cities all over the world i.e. Barcelona, Berlin, London, Los Angeles, Miami and Paris. Cranio gets his inspiration from life, the streets, cartoons and the famous surrealist Salvador Dali. His blue Indian characters have become his trademark. It all started as his desire to show the indigenous people from Brazil and all the troubles they’re facing in the unforgiving contemporary world, complete with sneakers and smartphones. The contrast between the spiritual blue Indians and their new world environment raises questions we don’t always ask ourselves and allows us to think about ourselves and the society we live in. And although over the years he has developed his style and learned new techniques, his work never lost his humor and sharpness we love about it so much! As his career develops Cranio is making more and more works on Canvas. Using intricate techniques he is able to manipulate spray paint like no other. Creating layers and delicate lines playing with textures and color contrast. His works are always detailed and have lot of depth. Cranio takes time to think of what concept he wants to convey with his work and this attention to detail shows in everything he makes, whether it is a mural, a big canvas painting, toy sized Indians or his big sculptures.

  • L'Atlas & Tanc  (+)

    Biography : L'Atlas is a French artist born in 1978. He began doing graffiti in the early 1990s. Fascinated by the history of handwriting, he has studied calligraphy in several countries and designed his own typography. He frequently works in public spaces and has become a major figure of the Street Art movement. He has also developed a pictural universe, where he leads the written word towards calligraphic abstraction. He lives and works in Paris. Jules Dedet Granel better known as L’Atlas was born in 1978 near Toulouse, but he grew up in Paris where he started street writing and tagging in 1991. Inspired by emerging subcultures like hip hop and rap. Hestudied History of Art and Archeology in Toulouse where he met Smail Bour Quaiba, a traditional calligraphist, on whose invitation he spent three months in Morocco learning classical calligraphy. Then he went to Egypt, where he had come to know Munir al Shaarani an Syrian artist known for his modern approach of calligraphic works in which he combines both calligraphy, design and architecture. al Shaarani and L’atlas’ travels to Syria, Morocco and Egypt are the reason for his Arabic touch. His works remind us of an intersection between geometric abstraction and minimalism where every letter is a form, and every form is a letter. L’Atlas’ work is all about lines and forms. The main theme of his paintings, graffiti, and installations is the displacement of the people around the world. Although moving from street based projects to different mediums like canvas,

    Biography : Richard Hambleton is a contemporary American-Canadian graffiti artist, sometimes called the “godfather of street art.” Along with his contemporaries Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Hambleton painted directly on the streets of New York and achieved success during the art boom of the 1980s. Born in June of 1954 in Vancouver, Canada, Hambletons first major fame in the art world came from his Image Mass Murder series, wherein he painted chalk outlines around volunteer “victims” splashed red paint, thereby leaving fictional and violent crime scenes behind in over 15 cities. As time passed, he gradually transitioned to work in the studio, producing a body of work he titled the Beautiful Paintings. “I’ve been doing public art for a long time, and studio work, and there’s a relationship between the two of them,” he remarked of the shift in his practice. A reclusive artist, Hambleton now lives and works in New York City’s Lower East Side. Richard Hambleton is most famous for his "Shadowman" paintings of the early 1980s. Each painting resembles a life-sized silhouetted image of some mysterious person, a "splashy shadow figure." These "shadow paintings" were splashed and brushed with black paint on hundreds of buildings and other structures across New York City. Locations were believed to be calculated for maximum impact upon unsuspecting pedestrians. Very often, a Shadowman could be found in a dark alley or lurking just around a street corner. Hambleton later expanded the scope of his project and painte
