The Sao Paulo graffiti scene exists beyond the boundaries of the city of Sao Paulo, this exhibition takes place in what is known as the ‘interior’ of the state, or the countryside, it is however pretty urban, Sorocaba is the eighth largest city in Sao Paulo state with nearly 600,000 inhabitants, so by no means countryside in my eyes.. it would be the third biggest city if moved to England.
Anyway, the Sao Paulo artist Alex Hornest, who reportedly has over 70 artistic names, which must be near to a record, is exhibiting a show called Expo ONESTO – the most well known of his names. The exhibition is at Galeria ENTRE which is the gallery of Walls Graffiti & Urban Shop.
You can see a couple of photos of mine showing Onesto’s work in Sao Paulo. And a nice video about the artist below. If your in Sorocaba, then definately check this one out.
WHEN: Opening Party on Friday 19th March, from 19h. The exhibition will be on for 2 months
WHERE: Galeria ENTRE at Walls Graffiti & Urban Shop, Afonso Vergueiro 1563, Sorocaba, Sao Paulo.
