Joao Wainer is a photographer who lives in São Paulo and documents the Pixação Graffiti in his hometown. He already released several photographs and videos about that unique urban art and writing style, which comes from the favelas into the big Brazilian cities.
For this reason, “Cool Hunting” did a nice and interesting Pixação graffiti video with him. In this short documentation, he explains some letters and talks about the ideas behind that graffiti movement. Unfortunately, the video is some month old, but a must to see. And because I haven’t wrote anything about Pixação yet, I will now show you this nice film.
By the way, one of Joao Wainer’s films, called “Pixo”, is shown at the Fondation Cartier in Paris, as a part of the “Born in the Streets” graffiti exhibition, which was extended until January 10th, 2010 because of its great success.
