'Inconcretus', Rauricio Barbosa
This event has finished
Most artists try to make their work stand out, Rauricio Barbosa however, has a knack for making his disappear. Barbosa is one of 12 artists in 'As Margens no Centro', which revolves around the interplay between artistic urban interventions and the city’s rundown, fascinating Centro.
By body-painting his subjects so that they are camouflaged against the bustling, and often decadently crumbling urban landscape, the artist emphasises how easy it is to become invisible in a jam-packed city like São Paulo. It’s part of a two-month-long exhibition at Estúdio Lâmina, one of the Centro’s most interesting new art spaces and ‘a meeting point for artists', says the curator and co-creator of the studio, Luciano CortaRuas.
