SUSHISAMBA London Interior

We wanted to share more of Felipe Yung’s (FLIP) murals in SUSHISAMBA’s newest location atop of Heron Tower in the City of London. His work brings a certain energy to the space.

 

Marc Fornes X Yayoi Kusama Collaboration

Graffiti Gone Global veteran, Marc Fornes, recently collaborated with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama on a Louis Vuitton pop-up store in London’s Selfridges. Kusama’s signature red dots mesh well with Fornes’ architectural structure, or “very first carbon fiber self supported shell.” Click on the following link to watch a video of the store’s amazing transformation: http://bit.ly/QCJrE1.

Os Gêmeos

Acclaimed Brazilian street artist duo, Os Gêmeos, will have their first solo exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. The creative twins – Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo – have been recognized ever since first emerging on the art scene in 1987. The exhibit will capture “the narrative [of their] work [which is a] visual synthesis of their everyday lives: the color and chaos of Brazil – particularly in their neighborhood in São Paulo…” The show will run through November 25.

Rio Occupation London

Rio Occupation London recently came to a close. For 30 days, 30 Brazilian artists – musicians, partners, film makers, dancers and more – all hailing from Rio de Janeiro, “occupied the vibrant streets, stages and squares of London during the London 2012 Olympic Games, working across the capital with UK based artists.” Amongst the artists was Graphic creative, Breno Pineschi, who covered the capital with hundreds of magnetic bananas. The festival, which was funded by Rio de Janeiro’s State Culture Secretariat, was produced by People’s Palace Projects in collaboration with the Battersea Arts Centre.
