Sunday around town we find a small community in the west side of Sao Paulo where the kids were playing around and interacting while we painted.Read More
Together with some good mates such as Akbo and Depor, we found this abandoned warehouse in the heart of São Paulo. These abandoned warehouses and factories so common in Brazil give us plenty of spots to hang out and paint. In the other hand, they just show us how stupid and evil is an economy of our country, which focuses on supplying cheap feedstock to the world instead of producing our own goods and technology.
The result is the bankruptcy of national industry and the reinforcement of our colony nature as a 3rd World Country. Exploratory businesses in the other hands, such as multinational's Nestle and Coca-Cola are going quite well in Brazil, as usual, thanks to an elite of disgraceful sons of bitches such as our current president and of course the majority of worldwide leaders, who are just puppets in the hands of capitalism beasts and bankers. But that is not the subject of this post though. Nonetheless, I hope you enjoyed the images...
While shooting a promo for Nou Colors, a couple shutter doors were gifted by 2 new Muretz pieces in Barra Funda, Sao Paulo. On a quite Sunday morning the artist shows up and throws up a couple characters on these doors as the sun raised and set down.
Such a quiet street supposes that these pieces will be seen only by the few who seek carefully through this nearly hidden spot. For these pieces, Muretz restrains from using outlines at all, and lays them with a gray colour palette thematic from his latest works.
All spray paint was kindly provided by Nou Colors. The mural took about 4 hours to be completed from sketch to finished. All photos by Davi Neri. Sao Paulo 2017.
Mixing and arranging them together to fit the whole space of the wall combined them into a group. All elements of the painting were laid using a limited palette of 5 colors, from white to greys and black.
The result is a piece that dialogs with people that walk by, almost inserting them in the painting as one of the characters portraited.
To acomplish this minimalistic work, Muretz used only spray paint which was kindly provided by Nou Colors. The mural took 4 full days to be completed, from sketch to finished.
