Two of my favorite things, art and football.. together, sounds like a good idea. On Friday the “2×45 – Futebol e Arte” (2 x 45 – Football and Art) exhibition opened, which features work from a number of Sao Paulo’s street artists. The exhibition is at the Goethe-Institut São Paulo, the place to go if you are looking for Germans in Sao Paulo, or interested in studying German. I had the fortune of watching one of the Germany matches there during the world cup, and its an interesting place.
The six works on show, were all made live at Goethe Institut during the semi finals of the world cup, which included the now infamous 7-1 drubbing of Brazil by Germany no less, so the works produced by Brazilian artists during this game, while watching in close company of a largely German audience should be interesting. The other game was the Holland v Argentina clash.
Involved in the exhibition are Brazilian street artists Leiga, Tche Ruggi, Caps, Sliks, Lobot, Ricardo AKN, Walter Stach, Enivo, Jerry Batista, Sinha, Sola and Bieto and the South African artist Marcus Neustetter. Some examples of their work can be seen below.
