Street Art Brazil

Frankfurt on the Main

In the context of Brazil being the Guest of Honor at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2013, for the first time in Germany the SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE showcases the diversity of Brazilian graffiti art. Brazil’s metropolises are home to some of the most vibrant and artistically interesting graffiti communities. This colorful, dynamic and unique movement differs sharply in terms of both content and aesthetically from the US and European street art scenes. Not only the specific political/social mood in a country characterized by profound upheaval, but also the immense variety of techniques and styles are trademarks of Brazilian street art and make it stand out from the globalized graffiti culture.

The spectacular show that started with the SCHIRN’s own outside walls currently intervenes Frankfurt’s urban space reflecting the movement’s current diversity with all its different artistic approaches. Many artists from São Paulo and other cities in Brazil have been invited to shape the face of various of Frankfurt’s urban spaces and thus transform what we see every day in the city.
