Street artist André Saraiva is perhaps best known for the creation of his “Mr. A” character which was featured last year in the award winning documentary “Exit Through the Gift Shop”. He made his own directorial debut in 2011 with his short film, “The Shoe,” co-starring Leo Fitzpatrick and Annabelle Dexter-Jones. Saraiva has exhibited all over the world including shows at Colette, Palais de Tokyo and Air de Paris where he showed his love graffiti for the first time. For MOCA’s landmark “Art in the Streets” show, he tagged up the museum’s bathrooms with his colorful graffiti. André’s show “Love Letters” at half gallery — his first solo exhibition in New York — will include paintings on french letter boxes which he used to paint all over Paris and love notes on stationery, a somewhat anachronistic celebration of communication so closely tied to the romantic. “Love Letters” will be exhibited at half gallery from February 11th until March 1st.
