One of our favorite artists in the world is Sao Paulo's Herbert Baglione, who for years has been making compelling and narratvie works on both the streets and in galleries. This month, the former Juxtapoz cover artist will be with Winterlong Galerie to continue his 1000 Shadows Project that Herbert has been working on for 10 years in countries like Brazil, Italiy, Germany, and Tunisia. Winterlong will organize severals installations in historic French locations in la Rochelle, Niort (where the gallery is located) and in small French villages.

Last month, as the world was paying attention to Brazil's showcase of the World Cup, we ran a city guide to Sao Paulo, as instructed by Baglione brothers William and Herbert. Now, William has a series of photographs, Coffee or Cigarettes, from August 9—14 with Winterlong Galerie in France. Check the postcard for more information, as there are two shows going on at once!

The Street-Art Brazil Festival curated by Schirn Kunsthalle has kicked off in Frankfurt, Germany (September 5 – October 27). Eleven artists from San Paulo and various other Brazilian cities have been invited to paint the streets of Frankfurt and more. One of the artists participating is Herbert Baglione, who we have covered much in the past and for good reason! Baglione continues his ongoing project 1000 Shadows by painting a swarm of haunting and eerie silhouettes on the floor of the famed Hauptwache plaza. Other artists we have covered in the past participating are Nunca, Vitche and Rimon Guimaraes.

By painting haunting and eerie silhouettes on the floors, walls and ceilings,Herbert Baglione has gaurenteed that anyone who steps foot in this abandoned psychiatric hospital in Parma, Italy will be spooked tenfold. The ghostly figures are part of the artist’s ongoing 1000 Shadows project and are brilliantly juxtaposed with the vacant wheelchairs in these photos.

As you know, for over the past 10 years, Baglione has become of the Brazil's leading contemporary artists, working both in street murals, installation, and fine art, with traits that illuminate existential dilemmas and the perils of modernity and isolated urban life. Phew, we got heavy.

When we were at Nuart this past Fall, Herbert Baglione's installation room was one of the highlights, as the Sao Paulo-based artist had paid tribute to the 69 victims of the Norway UTØYA ) massacre that occured in the country earlier in 2011. The work, when completed, was a moving tribute and stunning piece.

Today we show you the completed collaborative mural that Herbert Baglione and Dr. Lakra worked on in Oaxaca, Mexico last week in conjunction with the Day of the Dead festivities. As you can see in the final mural, the artist took the Day of the Dead celebration and its themes of celebrating those passed away and applied to each of their styles.
