Zezão – Urban Art of São Paulo

Some days ago, I received an e-mail by Sabine Willig who seems to be a representative of the Choque Cultural Gallery in São Paulo, which is “a contemporary art gallery exhibiting pop, outsider art.” She informed me about an amazing exhibition which takes place in the three floors of the gallery…

One of the most famous São Paulo based urban artists José Amaro Capela, who is also known as Zezão, is currently exhibiting at Choque Cultural! The name of the really beautiful looking art show is “Vari Ações Urbanas”, which means “Various Urban Actions” and presents collages of up to 1,85 x 1,90 m size as well as paintings on wood, paper, canvas and the rusty surfaces…

Zezão is an intuitive and self-taught artist. His profound and complex artistic creation is infused of esthetic, political and social implications. Zezão could definetely have his work described as “conceptual”, notwithstanding his refusal to conceptualize the propositions he vibrantly asserts by manipulating and varying between art forms as different as installation, site specific, photography, video, performance and painting. (press release)

I love the mind-blowing photos of the show and the mixture of artworks. If you haven’t done yet, you should add Zezão to the list of extremely interesting urban artists!
