Brasília-born artist Onio is one of the leading exponents of modern Brazilian street art. Railing against the 'watering-down' he perceives the entertainment industry engendered in his beloved genre in the 1980s and 1990s, the art he produces in his studio with a brush echoes the vibrance and energy of that which he sprays on the walls of his adopted home town of São Paulo. Reflecting a new-found interest in sci-fi, the A3 and A5 works he brings to the small gallery at the back of streetwear store Homegrown have been created with gouache, chinese ink and silkscreen, the abstract narratives of Onio's mind unveiled in Rio for the first time.
