Herbert Baglione @New Image Art

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 13, 2007
New Image Art in Los Angeles is proud to present Sao Paulo-based, Brazilian artist Herbert Baglione in his new exhibition titled The Wall. Baglione has been recognized for over ten years as part of Brazil's street artist movement along with Os Gemeos, Speto and Vitche whom have all had a large influence on street art here in the United States. Baglione's strong, distinctive style and complex themes visible in his illustrations, paintings, and street endeavors have earned international acclaim in the design and art world alike. For his solo show, titled "The Wall", at New Image Art, Baglione will test the audience to ponder the walls inside contemporary society and to think about their own internal walls that may lead to stagnation in life. "The Wall" is a continuation of Herbert's vision of his highly successful solo show "Vossia" at Fifty24SF Gallery in San Francisco in 2006. This show centered on Herbert's vision of man's consciousness, power and chaos. Herbert was a featured artist in "The Run Up", a film by Upper Playground and exhibited at Fifty24SF, Galerie de Pury & Luxembourg, Zurich, Q! Gallery in Glasgow, and the Von Der Heydt Museum in Wuppertal, Germany among others. More information about tonight's opening reception is on the gallery's website, www.newimageartgallery.com. Brooklyn-based artist Judith Supine will be showing in the Project Room. {moscomment}

The Graffiti Project: Done

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 13, 2007
Oh yeah, the Graffiti Project, featuring the distinctive work of Brazillian street artists Os Gemeos, Nina Pandolfo, and Nunca at Kelburn Castle is done. It looks amazing. Kelburn is prominently located on the west coast of Scotland, 35 miles west of Glasgow, overlooking the sea. Parts of the building are in need of repair, but funds have been secured to begin an extensive restoration, which includes the removal of the external render, allowing the opportunity to use the present surface as a vast temporary canvas. There are loads of great photos (and some video) on the project's site, www.thegraffitiproject.net. {moscomment}

The Graffiti Project and Os Gemeos

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 20, 2007
Via Wooster Collective The idea is simple and original: take the vibrant and often transient art form of Brazilian graffiti, out of its predominantly urban context and apply it to the ancient and permanent walls of an historic rural castle in Scotland. As from the 10th May 2007 this site will be your portal to the development of THE GRAFFITI PROJECT at Kelburn Castle in Scotland.

Nunca

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 23, 2006
Recent work by Brazillian artist Nunca. Information online about Nunca is scarce, and we left our copy of Graffiti Brasil at home today, so we don't have a lot left to say, except apparently he lives in Sao Paulo and he's pals with Os Gemeos. Here's a train he painted. Click More... for detail shots. From Graffiti Brasil: "Nunca, meaning 'never' in Portugese, started painting in 1992 and is now one of the rising stars of Sao Paulo's graffiti scene. His latest work juxtaposes urban and native cultures by combining the geometric patterns and colours found in indigenous South American artwork with the linework of pichacao. The resulting portraits of indigenous South Americans serve as a reminder, he says, 'that people in Brazil are also descendants of indigenous South Americans, and not just African and European people'"..."Globalization is an underlying issue in his work. His indigenous characters sometimes sport a spoof brand name &emdash; 'Naique', which is the local pronunciation of Nike. In homage to indigenous South American cultures, he has even adopted carving techniques in his graffiti..."
