Graffiti in Venezuela: Pinto Con Lata

South America is like a hidden treasure chest for underground graffiti styles and street art innovations. Maybe it’s because of the far distance between Europe and countries like Argentina, Brazil or Venezuela, but every time I find something about urban art in South America I’m really impressed about their crazy ideas, rough styles and simple solutions for difficult situations. And it seems that there are a lot of other people, having the similar thoughts

“Pinto Con Lata” is an graffiti documentary about the scene and styles in Caracas, one of Venezuela’s most unsafe places. The official trailer gives some interesting insights into what’s going on on the streets there, showing climbing graffiti writers, tagging while driving in a car and so on…

You have to understand it, the rules are flexible for everyone, specially the laws, to know how to judge yourself and how to move within them. [...] Leaving behind thoughts that Caracas is an unsafe place, very violent and that it’s one of the most unsafe cities. To me Caracas is a paradise… (from the trailer)

The documentary will be published in December 2010. I’ll keep you up-to-date!
