Contra o Verso is a perfect example of what the art scene is like in Brazil, a scene which is enjoying a peak and hard to argue with the likes of Herbert Baglione (THE NEW ORDER Issue 1) setting a strong tone.
“Contra o Verso (Against the Verse) ensembles a group of 8 prominent Brazilian street artists intimately connected to the urban art world. Transferring their artistic production into a gallery space, they establish a new challenge towards the contemporary art circuit, during the Sao Paulo Biennale. Nunca, Herbert Baglione, Tinho, Alex Hornest (Onesto) Flip, Flavio Samelo, Bruno9Li and Sesper have roots deep in the streets of Sao Paulo and other major cities around the globe through their respective graffiti, sticker art, skate practices, photography, and writings. Their subject matter goes from philosophical introspection to cultural anthropology.”
