We are all products of the chaos that surrounds us,” says Portuguese street artist Alexandre Farto – aka Vhils – in André Santos’s film, which documents the indigenous village of Araçaí, Brazil, where 90 Guaraní people were moved by the government at the turn of this century, displacing them from their ancestral lands. Immortalizing these forgotten people, Farto carves their portraits onto buildings and the doors of their homes – mixing indigenous and new techniques – giving them the voice and dignity they have been denied.

Last year, one of the most engaging and beautifully designed books to be released hands down was “Sign Painters.” This book created by Faythe Levine and Sam Macon, documents the traditional craft of hand-lettered sign paintingthrough photographs and interviews with older and emerging practitioners from across the U.S. Not only was a book created, but a movie as well and it has been previewing in various locations. We haven’t yet had the opportunity to see it for ourselves, but Nowness has put up a nice eight-minute preview that has us excited once again to see it.
