Baglione’s art is one reason why street art excites and inspires people across the world. His strong distinctive style ans the complex themes visibles in his ilustrations, paintings and street interventions have made him a recognized name within the world of art as well as design internationally.
Baglione doens’t just paint in the street but also on the street. He is among the few who use pavements , roofs and even lawns as his canvas. As a graffiti writter he is poetic and elegant like a calligrapher and at the same time he resembles the Brazilian so called pixadores (Brazilian term for graffiti writers) from his hometown, São Paulo.
A similar elegance and distinctive style is seen in his paintings. He use Black and White or darkness and light , which is at times broken into the rainbow colours of a prism.
The Black and White straight standinge extraterrestrial like figures bend themselves round the curved corner of a pavement or edge themselves in shape with a tiled roof.
In a large painting an overweight lady floats in a Black indefinable room tangled up by elegant botanical shapes. Through Baglione’s iconic , figurative and at times mystical style these beings are elevated to become something from another world. He mentions chaos , death and individualism as the persistent themes in works such as these.
The city , especially his hometown São Paulo , is what inspires and frustrates Baglione. It is its being which breather through his work , which always takes its shape from the shape of the city. Baglione describes São Paulo as “the crib of confrontation” and a place where cold individualism prevails , and where the chaos of daily confrontations between people demands a rebirth or a new mask everyday.
To Baglione the architecture of a city is not just scenere , providing a background for his work. In his eyes , everything around us is a single organism , a living and pulsating body from which elements develop and blend with each other. This is why he describes himself as a tool through which architecture are integrated in Baglione’s work , and his figure underline and expose what is already present.
Baglione’s art is constantly envolving and changing. He has created numerous works all over the World and has recently exhibition at New Image Art Gallery , Hollywood , Fifty24 , San Francisco , Lazarides , London , Galarie de Pure & Luxembourg , Zurich , Iguapop , Barcelona , Luiz Adelantado , Valencia , and Q! Gallery, Glasgow.

Felipe YungOpen or Close
Amongst large brushes and paint, Felipe Yung cultivates roots, reasons in organic textures in a singular way and brings to paper uniquely shaped images, influenced by his tireless researches on Asian culture. His history begins at the neighborhood of Vila Mariana in São Paulo, and it reaches as far as Moscow. Paintings and spraypaints, which transcend trends and tell the history of Brazilian Graffiti.
His work permeates various worlds. Flip works through the peaceful coexistence of certain oppositions such as figurative and abstract. In a contemporary gesture
he conjugates figurative and abstraction, such as his painted trees which when seen up close are no longer the figure of a tree but abstract lines, camouflages.
It’s also in the key of life and death that the artist works the question of pop in his figure. Solid beings containing high dosage of popism which on their peculiarity
demonstrate an indescribable frailty, many times having us think that were they to leave the walls which they were painted on, they wouldn’t have much time left
in life. Nothing more alive and spontaneous than pop and culture, but also nothing more fleeting.
Since 2006 he’s joined Famiglia Baglione, and has participated of exhibitions and executed work in São Paulo, Florianópolis, Porto Alegre, Brighton, London, Madrid,
Barcelona, Paris, Los Angeles. He has also participated of art fairs in Miami (Art Basel), has represented Brasil in Moscow as a guest of the Brazilian Embassy.
