19 Brazilian artists, 53 pieces, 3 organizers, 2partners and an amazing place. That is what took to have an absolutely fantastic Brazilian Urban Art Exhibit in NYC.
Brazil’s “National Day of Graffiti” on March 27th was established in 1987 after the death of the artist Alex Vallauri (1949-1987), one of the pioneers of contemporary urban art in the country. Synopsis of an Urban Memoir is a group exhibition in tribute to this iconic date that aims to foster urban art as an artistic and social movement.
Each of these artists this exhibit, through their own style, represent different voices within their communities. Nevertheless, they all embrace the importance of bringing color and inspiration to public spaces. In this sense, art becomes accessible to all and strengthens the relationship between the city's inhabitants and their environment.
