Andre Muniz Gonzaga Dalata is one of Brazil’s most famous street artists and this series ‘I See Things’ is a wonderful example of how graffiti and street art interventions can transform a run down urban centre. Dalata is well known for painting on irregular surfaces in run down areas – interacting with nature and using stains, mould, cracks and collapsed buildings – in a style he calls ‘bizarre passion’. It’s his attempt to start a dialogue between art and the public.
Here’s what he says about the scene in Brazil:
There’s definitely something unique about Brasilian graffiti – it’s marginalized in other countries, but not in the same way. It’s different being broke in New York and being broke in Brasil.
I’ve only put up a few examples of his smaller works in abandoned sites. You should check out his larger murals they’re amazing.
