• Meeting artists at the Favela in Rio de Janeiro

    January 31st, 2013, last day of a busy year and an acid desire that my 2014 started with the energy of the sea. Rio de Janeiro, the wonderful city and with a thousand charms, welcomed me with open arms on a bright sunny day with the blue sky color of the sea. It was at(…)

  • My Life on Videos – Retrospective of 2013

    
Last year, to retrospect 2012, I made ​​a selection among more than 600 images of street art that I had photographed in Paris during that year (see article here). 2012 was my first year living in Paris and I was taken by a certain discipline to photograph each art-work I found on the streets that(…)

  • Autumn in The Loire Valley

    - Brief Passage  (passage originally written in Portuguese) The summer went away, barely bringing warmth and joy, the summer went away, without looking back, let the doors open for melancholy and sadness to settle. Autumn has arrived, temporary as expected, surprised the heart with hope and affection and let the sadness drain away. Intense autumn,(…)

  • Midnight in Paris by bike

    Today I won’t talk about street-art. Ops, I mean, not about street-art in the concept of urban art, illegal and transgressor. However, if we can expound the world in the literary sense (art on the street), yes, we can consider this post related to street-art. After all, Paris is art in each street, each corner,(…)

Berlin: The meeting of fashion and urban art 0

After a hot Saturday night in Paris, I took a car-sharing towards Berlin. Even with a long, tiresome trip (1000 km) on the road, it was completely worthy to arrive there late on Sunday night and see the East Side Gallery  as the first thing, the 1.3 km-long section of Berlin wall, with 105 paintings(…)

Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, no doubt. However, Paris is beige, full of concrete within a competitive environment. Two weeks ago, I went to the south west of France, Hossegor to be precise, and I immersed myself within the French natural landscape, fresh air from the sea, mountains, and(…)
